What's Going On Greenville- a Weekend Guide to the Upstate

It's a big weekend here in the Upstate. The leaves are in their prime and have really shown some spectacular color. Anything activity to do outdoors simply must be done- it's quite nearly sacrilegious to stay inside when the cool mornings and evenings are sandwiching bright, warm afternoons. So whether it's enjoying a picnic and a hike at Paris Mountain State Park or drinking a cold seasonal brew on the deck at The Community Tap, we encourage everyone to seek something beautiful in the greater outdoors. Here's what we're doing this weekend: Swamp Rabbit Inn accommodates cyclists as our properties are near the Swamp Rabbit Trail

Greenville boasts some of the most incredible cycling conditions in the entire country. Undulating hills, epic Tour-De-France style mountain climbs, and peaceful family friendly trails. This weekend, Greenville and the surround Upstate plays host to the 2015 Hincapie Gran Fondo. Styled like a European mass start bicycle ride, Greenville and more specifically Travelers Rest is the literal stomping ground for over 2000 cyclists for the Saturday ride. And what's even better? Hincapie Sportswear's Warehouse Sale, starting at 9 am on Friday morning.

George Hincapie and Cadel Evans  are set to ride together again at the 2015 edition of Hincapie Gran Fondo.

Maybe riding bikes isn't your style. May we suggest Furman University's Homecoming Football game? Situated just outside the city limits, Furman is one of the most beautiful liberal arts schools in the country. Walk along the path by the lake, take in the breathtaking rose garden, or enjoy lunch made with local meats and produce, open to all.

And finally, join us at the Inn Sunday from 4-7 pm for our First Annual Hoptoberfest. Live music, local makers, farm fresh produce, food trucks, and more. We're also giving away a weeknight's stay for the BEST child and pet costume so don't forget to bring the kids and the dogs.
