Hispanic grocery store, very friendly and helpful. For a really inexpensive but flavorful late night meal, try to catch their food truck out front!

Farmers market, open Monday through Saturday, 8 am to 6 pm. Most local vendors are there only on Saturday mornings. G & G retail, located within the Farmer's Market, is open during the week, and is a great place to buy locally-grown foods (Happy Cow Creamery products, raw milk, grits and rice from Carolina Plantation, fresh produce, etc). Some of what you might find: Artisan Breads Meat / Chicken / Eggs Fresh Fruits Fresh Vegetables Bedding Plants Shrubs & Trees Vegetable Plants Potted Plants Fresh Herbs Local Crafts Homemade Soaps / Lotions Wreaths / Garland Pumpkins Corn Stalks Straw Bales Vending Machines Restrooms Limited Handicap Accessible

Lovely atmosphere, nice selection of Asian food. Fairly new restaurant, opened by owners of a very successful, highly awarded Asian restaurant in Spartanburg. Don't miss their incredible Key Lime Pie!

Best Cuban pork north of Florida (that I’ve found)!! About 30-45 minute drive, depending on traffic, but if you’ll be going through/near Simpsonville, is definitely worth a stop. Also great selection of sandwiches and other special dishes, don't forget the sauces (white sauce is our fave!), and for a treat, try the Cuban coffee and desserts!

Best ice cream in the world, in our experiences, anyway! The wait can be long; SO well worth it, for their handmade ice cream. You pick either vanilla or chocolate & huge choice of add-ins. Kids love!

Our favorite, and in our opinion, the very best sushi restaurant anywhere in the Upstate. This is in downtown Greenville. Great selection of sushi along with hibachi and noodle dishes, lovely atmosphere & always impeccable service. Closest off-street free parking is at the Richardson Street garage; it’s only 1 1/2 blocks away and is free on the weekends and on weeknight evenings.

For a unique experience, you *must* try this local coffee shop that has been part of downtown's revitalization. Of all of the local restaurants, this is the one that I always recommend and always take visitors to, one family or friends from out of town come in. The best chocolate cake that I have ever had, homemade or restaurant, in all of my travels.... And my mom is an incredible cook! Espresso and lattes are wonderful, the baristas really know what they are doing. Great lunch, breakfast, or light supper, with a nice selection of sandwiches, quiche & other light meals. My personal favorite sandwich is the turkey and brie. Of all of the local restaurants, this is the one that I always recommend and always take visitors to, when family or friends from out of town come in. Closest off-street free parking is at the Richardson Street garage; it’s only 1 1/2 blocks away and is free on the weekends and on weeknight evenings.

Although we prefer Spill the Beans for handmade, non-chain ice cream, this Bruster’s location is only a 3-5 minute drive, and of course, a kid favorite; they offer a free small cone to very young kids

Local, family owned chain; the location on Mills Avenue is closest but they have locations in Anderson, Easley, and Mauldin; also other Greenville locations including near Haywood Mall and on Pelham Road I don’t like hot dogs, but I LOVE Skin’s. 2 “all-the-way” is a perfect meal, and of course, you have options of what you want on there. CASH ONLY, they do not accept credit or debit cards. Very reasonably priced.

Hidden gem... incredible food, sits right where you can see the small airplanes taking off and landing! New playground right outside for kids. My fave is the Pimiento cheese sandwich, add tomatoes.

Regionally famous, the Swamp Rabbit Trail is a converted rail line and runs from Traveler's Rest down through downtown Greenville. There are places to rent bikes to ride, and you're always welcome to jog or walk down the trail. You can find several different places to rent bikes from for the whole family. It is about a 15 minute bike ride from the Airbnb space, to the swamp rabbit trail.
