QUAINT & COZY TOWN RIGHT OUTSIDE GREENVILLE SC

Today, one of the city’s most popular attractions is the 7.5-mile Doodle Trail, a paved recreational path built along the route of the 19th-century railroad.

Since the rail trail opened in 2015, the city has claimed the train as its brand, featuring it prominently on its website and throughout the downtown district. Businesses like The Pint Station, a craft beer taproom and wine bar on Main Street, have capitalized on the railroad theme.

Trains on Main, a scavenger hunt of sorts, offers visitors the opportunity to explore the historic downtown as they search for bronze train cars placed near city landmarks. A map to the train engine and cars can be found on Discover Easley under Community Happenings.

But the town, which serves as a bedroom community for Greenville, offers much more than just railroad nostalgia. Along with the rail trail, Easley has eight parks, including JB Owens Park, host of the Big League Baseball World Series from 2001-2016. It now serves as home to the Senior League Baseball World Series.

Easley’s recreational amenities, which include a disc golf course, gymnasium, sand volleyball, and tennis, pickleball and basketball courts, have become a centerpiece of the city. In late 2019, Easley will open another park with 2.5 miles of natural walking trails.

The city also has invested in beautifying the downtown district with several attractive parks and gathering spots. Easley Park on Pendleton Street features swings and a fountain, and Old Market Square also has swings, along with a historic clock tower and a terraced amphitheater that serves as a venue for concerts and other community events.

Another downtown highlight is the Easley Farmers Market on North First Street. Open Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings in season, it features baked goods, crafts, live music and plenty of fresh-from-the-field produce. Events like the chili cook-off, pie contest and holiday market are held regularly.

A number of fun shops, restaurants and bars are also luring residents and visitors to the burgeoning downtown. Some, like Poor Richard’s Booksellers, have been around for decades.
