Easley also places a focus on the arts with talented performances at the Easley Foothills Playhouse and educational offerings at the Fine Arts Center of Easley. In addition to strong business growth, Easley is dedicated to recreation, tourism, and the arts evidenced in modern sophisticated recreational facilities and a downtown featuring a water-feature park and outdoor amphitheater. Visitors to the Pickens County area can tour historic gristmills, hike trials, and visit natural waterfalls.

The trail is projected to open on Memorial Day weekend. Hopkins said, "The Doodle Trail is by far the most exciting project for Easley in terms of shaping our future. Over time, it will redefine the sense of place for Easley."
