Spartanburg is full of hidden gems. These gems range from The Beacon, where George W. Bush has eaten; to quaint coffee shops; affordable bookstores; restaurants and even a frozen custard shop. You can also head to the Fr8 Yard - an outside place where you can watch sports on a big screen T.V., eat amazing food, and even dogs are welcome! After eating you can play at the Sparkle City Mini Putt course, or in the winter you can ice skate on the ice rink that comes to Downtown Spartanburg - a must see attraction. Another sparkling aspect of Spartanburg is the Chapman Cultural Center where a variety of plays are performed and has gallery exhibitions. Spartanburg is home to the Hub City Railroad Museum, Hub City Farmer’s Market, and Hatcher Gardens, where you can stroll the scenic, indescribable, woodland paths. Spartanburg also sponsors Spring Fling and Red, White, and Boom. Spartanburg is the perfect mix of historical and modern styles, and you will never be bored here.

I love Spartanburg! There are so many cool new attractions and restaurants coming to town, and it is only a short distance from major cities such as Atlanta, Charleston, and Myrtle Beach. Everyone who lives here is family and super kind to one another. It is a true college town with enough to have fun on the weekends but nothing distracting enough to disrupt studies. If anyone gets bored in Spartanburg, luckily exciting Greenville is only 30 minutes away! Spartanburg is a great place to live and anyone considering this town should be prepared to love it right away!
