Hey Greenvillians, Kyle + Danielle here. Between the two of us, we get the privilege of sharing local news, events, and conversations with 58,000+ readers in GVL, daily — here, and on our socials.
After being around for a while, we thought we should formally introduce ourselves. Consider this us going in for a fist bump, then switching to a handshake, then settling on a hug.

🙋♀️ Meet Kyle
Q: Describe your perfect day in GVL in the length of a Tweet (240 characters).
A: A summer morning at the TD Saturday Market with iced coffee from Methodical Coffee and fresh flowers in hand. An afternoon bike ride up the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail with my husband + pup in tow. Finishing the day with friends, wine, and a Tommy pizza at Sidewall.
Q: You’re ordering a drink from a Greenville coffee shop or bar: What’s in it?
A: Coral's Coconut Espresso Martini will forever have my heart: Coconut vodka, fresh espresso, Kahlua, and Carolina Cream.
👀 Meet Danielle
Q: What were the last 3 things you did downtown?
Q: Hit us with your favorite piece of local trivia:
A: When Unity Park opened, we shared this piece of history + I still think it’s the coolest. In 1907, Boston architect Harlan Kelsey developed a master plan titled, “Beautifying and Improving Greenville S.C.” He recommended three parks be built along the Reedy River: Cleveland Park was the first (created in 1922), Falls Park was the second (completed in 2004) + Unity Park (opened in May) completing the full plan 115 years later.
