Below is a list of the best places I would visit on a trip to this location. My picks fit my personality and interest. Everyone has a different interest so you may not like everything I listed which is fine.  If you like a place, I recommend saving it to Google Maps for a future trip down the road. I made sure to include the address or GPS to make it easier to find.  You can find out more about me in the "About Me" section to see if we share common interests.

BMW Zentrum

A free car museum outside Greenville, BMW Zentrum is the only museum of its kind in North America. It celebrates the past, present, and future of BMW with various rare vehicles on display. The exhibits take you through the entire history of BMW. BMW Zentrum is an extension of the BMW manufacturing plant in which you can take a guided tour of the plant (1hr or 2hr) for an additional cost. If you have the extra money to spend and want the ultimate BMW experience than you would include the nearby BMW Performance Center in your visit.
