Don't worry if antiques and artwork are more your sport, you'll find plenty of that too. And when you've finished with a day of bargain hunting, (or if you don't catch any fish for dinner) there are restaurants to suite many tastes with one thing in common; That famous Greer hospitality.
Art fairs, fishing contests, and music festivals are not uncommon in the spring and summer. In Fall, the changing colors can be seen for miles. Green turns to yellow and then to gold, and the landscapes look like giant patchwork of calico kittens! When the snow falls there are all forms of winter fun, from downhill to cross country skiing, sledding, snowmobiles and rides in an authentic horse drawn sleigh.
Truly an outdoor recreational paradise, the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest is said to be the largest stand of ponderosa pine in the world.
At an elevation of 8,500 feet, Greer offers cool summers and moderate winters. You can enjoy the variety of lakes, streams, trails, and wildlife by day and relax with a loved one in front of a cozy fire, while the fabulous Milky Way lights up the clear night sky like you've never seen before.
