The second annual Swamp Rabbit Music Festival is quickly approaching this weekend and we have a lot of promotion going on to build excitement. Check out this appearance on WYFF this past weekend with Myra Ruiz where we cover everything from Kringle to Feed and Seed and biking on the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
So many reasons to visit Greenville, SC and Travelers Rest and we look forward to welcoming everyone into our new inn in Travelers Rest for our first event at the new location.
Bring your blankets and chairs and kick back for some great music, food and beverages under the stars at the Swamp Rabbit Inn TR! Get your tickets here.
Local Green and Swamp Rabbit Inn and Properties are joining forces to throw a music festival combining area musicians and original songs at the new Swamp Rabbit Inn TR, located in downtown Travelers Rest at 426 S. Main Street, Travelers Rest, SC 29690. The music festival will be held on September 9 from 5pm – 10pm and will feature local songwriters performing their original work throughout the day. There will be food trucks, craft beer and wine and local vendors and makers. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door and $5 for students. Free parking is available on site and attendees are encouraged to bike up to the event on the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Local Green musicians and Feed & Seed a non-profit organized to facilitate the local food movement.
Local Green is a homegrown organization bringing together upstate musicians, songwriters, artisans, culinary adventurers, and visual artists. The collective was founded by musicians based in Greenville, SC and Asheville, NC. Now entering its third year, Local Green strives to support earnest and unique artists from the upstate, Asheville, and Charleston areas. From singer-songwriters playing their own, original material to large-ensemble dance parties, from local festivals to an ongoing podcast series, Local Green aims to highlight some of the musical talent active in the region. This largely informal network helps to assist and support its member artists as they develop their musical and personal selves.
Swamp Rabbit Inn and Properties started with the flagship six bedroom inn at 1 Logan Street in downtown Greenville, SC and has expanded opening the Swamp Rabbit Inn TR in March of 2017 and six other properties along the Swamp Rabbit Trail offering short term lodging options and a local experience. Owner, Wendy Lynam, shares a love of live music and and has collaborated with several Local Green musicians at the Truck Inn Tuesday events offered at the Swamp Rabbit Inn. The Swamp Rabbit Inn TR is a great location for individual room rentals and larger groups as it offers plenty of parking and a pool. Our new location is perfect for Furman families and travelers wanting a hip mountain town stay close to the best cycling and hiking in the Upstate. “We like to showcase our other properties by inviting the public into our space with fun events like the Swamp Rabbit Music Fest” Lynam explains.
Music starts at 5:00 PM and will feature short, but energetic sets by these local musicians:

For the first time in the rich and storied history of this series (See: hyperbolic), there isn’t a singular focus on any specific city for this particular story. I spent a week in a town called Travelers Rest, South Carolina, a community of roughly 5,000 souls located in Greenville County.

Thanks for the interview Town Magazine! Come stay at our unique hotel alternative in downtown Greenville, SC.
In 2014, Wendy Lynam, a mother of three with little experience in hospitality management, opened the delightful six-bedroom lodging that is Swamp Rabbit Inn. Located in the West End of downtown Greenville, just two blocks from the Swamp Rabbit Trail, the inn has become a hub for tourists, business travelers, wedding parties, cycling groups, and families.
It’s that time of year to search out a great Summer read and plan some cool trips with the family! Check out this new book from Bill Clevlen “100 Things to Do in America Before You Die“. Greenville, SC is mentioned in his book and specifically our beautiful Falls Park. Yes, Greenville has a waterfall with a suspension bridge, The Liberty Bridge, in the middle of our lively, cosmopolitan downtown!
During his book launch he visited downtown Greenville, SC and we had the pleasure of hosting him at the Swamp Rabbit Inn. Bill and I met on Twitter (@ontheroadwithbc) and I had invited him to come check out the inn the next time he was coming through Greenville. I have met some of the coolest people on Twitter and then in real life. It’s pretty amazing!! I digress …
Anyway, here is the Q&A between Bill and I during his trip to downtown Greenville, SC. Hope you enjoy and check out his book and book a room at the Swamp Rabbit Inn if you want to get started knocking off that list this Summer! Rent a bike at the Bike Shed at the Swamp Rabbit Inn and hop on the Swamp Rabbit Trail and ride right past the waterfall and bridge at Falls Park. We even have bike baskets if you want to pack a picnic! #bikeinnbikeout
Greenville, South Carolina is one of my favorite cities! When the opportunity came up to make a return visit, of course, I jumped at the chance! The people of Greenville are super friendly, there must be 200 places to wine and dine downtown and of course – the stunning Falls Park is worth the visit on its own.
