Swamp Rabbit Inn and Greenville, SC Featured in Washington Post

We were so thrilled to be featured in the Washington Post recently in an article about visiting Greenville, SC.  We had a great time riding the Swamp Rabbit Trail with reporter Dina Mishev and discussing all the great cycling routes in the Upstate of South Carolina, not to mention  all of our delicious restaurants and more.  So many reasons to plan your trip to Greenville, SC!  

Why you should visit Greenville, S.C.

GREENVILLE I've never fallen in love with a place as quickly as I did with Greenville. This was a surprise, because I arrived in South Carolina with low expectations. In the late '80s and early '90s, I spent most childhood school vacations and several weeks each summer visiting grandparents who lived elsewhere in the Palmetto State.

Rent a Bike from the Bike Shed at Swamp Rabbit Inn

Greenville is a cycling town, there's no denying that. The integration of bike lanes into new road projects, pump tracks and new mountain bike trails being added to parks, and the ever-expanding Swamp Rabbit Trail has all lent a hand to the boom of bikes in this city.

The close proximity to the Swamp Rabbit Trail (SRT) from the Swamp Rabbit Inn has had many out-of-town guests clamoring for a bike to use while they're staying. Our solution? The Bike Shed at Swamp Rabbit Inn: a small spot behind the Inn full of vintage treasures, local tees by the folks at Greenville Goods, cold and hot beverages, and bike rentals for locals and guests alike. For $15 a half day or $25 for the whole day, this includes a lock and a helmet (safety is sexy y'all). Our Bike Shed Manager, Lisa, is happy to give you pointers on where to go, or buy a Cycling Greenville Guidebook for your return travels.

The Bike Shed is open seasonally on Friday-Monday 9am to 5pm and Tuesdays from 3-8:30 during Truck Inn Tuesdays. You can always call 864-517-4617 to rent a bike during off hours as well.

Unique vacation and staycation options at Swamp Rabbit Inn

It’s safe to say that Truck INN Tuesdays is now a summer staple at the Swamp Rabbit Inn in downtown Greenville. If you haven’t experienced one yet, you should for a few reasons. #1- Greenville is an amazing place with loads of fun activities and music, but they primarily cluster around the Friday, Saturday, Sunday portion of the week. Truck INN Tuesdays happen on, well, you’re smart folks. #2- the growth of Greenville is happening rapidly but the West End lacks an abundance of food options; not only do we offer Food Truck snacks and dinners, but many local food makers, and King of Pops make it an all encompassing epicourian experience. #3- The West End in general is on the cusp of revitalization and expansion. It’s a great part of town to walk or ride your bicycle to explore what this great southern city has to offer.

So come see us. Take a tour of the Swamp Rabbit Inn. Eat and drink with your friends while listening to local music. Buy and support local makers and crafters. It’s not a bad way to spend a Tuesday evening.
