When you deplane at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, you’ll find yourself midway between the towns of Greenville and Spartanburg, just outside of Greer, in the heart of South Carolina Upcountry. The Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson Combined Statistical Area is home to several burgeoning cities and dozens of charming towns, so there’s plenty to do during your visit. Rent a car to make traversing the I-85 corridor area easy—or just to tool around town, wherever you choose to stay. Get your motor running and get going!
Lovers of history and the outdoors will enjoy visiting Greenville’s Falls Park on the Reedy. Considered the birthplace of Greenville, the area was developed into a large regional park with waterfalls, 20 acres of gardens, the Liberty Bridge, and access to Swamp Rabbit Trail. Enjoy waterfall photo ops, a garden picnic, or setting off on the 19.9-mile Swamp Rabbit Trail, a multi-use rail trail that traces the bed of a disused rail line of the same name. Experience the beauty of this area’s redevelopment and restoration firsthand.
Interested in a more communal kind of fun? The area is home to several annual festivals. Depending on the time of year during which you choose to visit, you may find Shakespeare festivals in Falls Park, art walks and sales, culinary events, comedy festivals, and nearly any kind of music festival or celebration you could want to see. If there isn’t a festival happening during your visit, consider exploring the Greenville County Museum of Art, which specializes in American art and has several pieces from modern masters in its collection. The Roper Mountain Science Center and the Charles E. Daniel Observatory have something for learners of all ages to enjoy—including the Living History Farm.
