No Better Place to Be Than Greenville for a Post-Grad Summer: Here Are 3 Fun Things to Do In the City


The completion of a college degree is an incredible achievement, and one worth some serious celebration. Lucky for you, you won’t have to venture far outside the doors of The Jolly Roger in order to find special ways to mark this accomplishment.

Check out these celebratory adventures around Greenville and make your post-grad celebration a moment in your life that you’ll never forget.

What’s the Best Way to Celebrate in the Greenville Food Scene?

If getting together with friends and sharing a meal is the way you like to celebrate, why not plan a barbecue tour and indulge in the best North Carolina barbecue? Start out at B’s Barbecue – you can’t miss it on the street that shares its name.

Then check out Skylight Inn BBQ, a Greenville hot spot since 1947. You’ll find classic pork and chicken dishes here, as well as delicious sides like coleslaw, baked beans, and potato salad. And be sure to hit up Bum’s Restaurant, which is famous for being one of the only eateries in eastern North Carolina that features a huge buffet of side dishes, including black-eyed peas, collards, cabbage pastry, and stewed rutabaga.

How Can I Treat Myself in Greenville?

If you want to enjoy a summer of indulgence, how about pampering yourself with a few spa treatments? Salt Beauty & Wellness features several options for massages that combine deep tissue, Swedish, and Trigger Point Therapy therapies. Escape Day Spa & Retreat offers several spa packages, including the Island Experience, where you’ll get the Rejuvenating Massage, Classic European Facial, and the Aromatherapy Foot Treatment. Or try the Beauty Bar Medispa for some serious facials like the Calming Treatment, a gentle acid application, and deep cleanse for the skin.

Where Can I Go to Celebrate in Greenville’s Outdoor Scene?

Get some friends together and explore the Tar River on a paddleboard through Knee Deep Adventures. Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is incredibly fun and easy while being a great way to spend time under the North Carolina sun. And if you’re really adventurous, you can try their paddleboard yoga.

You’ll find plenty of places for celebrating graduation in and around Greenville. So get out there and enjoy yourself! And don’t forget to follow The Jolly Roger blog to keep up with what’s new in town.
