In a small section of Old Town Greenwood, visitors can walk from art gallery to boutique to tea shop.
Wine lovers can sip a glass of cabernet and sample Gruyere cheese. Top-notch sushi and classic Italian restaurants are side-by-side on Madison Avenue.
Cities with similar areas have applied to make these sections state-recognized cultural districts. The designation helps support tourism and establish the area as a destination, taking advantage of a wide marketing campaign to get people to the neighborhood.
That could be an option for Greenwood in the future, but the city isn’t quite ready yet, said Christian Maslowski, executive director of the Greater Greenwood Chamber of Commerce.
