Here, you can admire a sky full of captivating pink and orange hues as the day turns to night. Then, when the sun fully sets the pedestrian bridge glows with a soft light, making any occasion feel intimate. Take your love on an evening stroll to admire the scenery and enjoy the sound of Reedy River flowing beneath the bridge while you pop the question.

Furman University Clock Tower
As far as local legends go, couples who share a kiss in the Bell Tower are bound to get married. Why not fulfill the destiny with an engagement? Erected in 1854, the tower stood watch over the campus until 1965 where a replica was placed along Furman Lake. With its ornate arches and beautiful brickwork, the tower quickly became a Greenville staple. Now, the structure sits atop a peninsula jutting out against the lake’s landscape, making for an idyllic spot for a summer proposal.
