In the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains lies Greenville, South Carolina. What was once the best-kept secret of pro cyclists is now a trending destination due to epic climbs, stunning views, and pristine country roads.

But it is more than just gorgeous terrain that lands Greenville a spot on almost every list of best cities and top destinations. Visitors can make it their mission to find all nine Mice on Main while they choose from more than 100 delicious restaurants, or escape to the Reedy River after taking in all the delightful shops and art attractions in town. Although you’re likely to be tired after riding the roads that the pros train on, we recommend taking an evening to discover the Southern charm that has everyone talking about Greenville, South Carolina.

Where To Go For Social Hour: Sip Rooftop Bar
Located just two blocks from the Westin Poinsett Hotel in downtown Greenville, Sip Tasting Room and Rooftop Lounge is the perfect venue to enjoy a post-ride beverage with new friends. Enjoy fresh air and views of the twinkling lights on Greenville’s iconic Main Street as you choose from more than 40 wines by the glass. Indulge in a cheese board to complement your cocktail, lounge on a comfortable outdoor sofa and toast an incredible day of exploration by bike. In a city that loves the outdoors, there’s no better place to savor the beauty than Sip’s relaxing rooftop bar.

Where To Go For Dinner: Larkin’s on the River
Following an enjoyable tasting at Sip, head south on Main Street toward the rushing waters of Reedy River as you make your way to Larkin’s on the River for tonight’s meal. With his keen sense for flavors, colors and composition, the plates prepared by Chef Alex are sure to captivate your palate. Start with the local favorite She Crab Soup before splurging on Southern shrimp and grits or spoiling yourself with an aged bone in filet mignon. Whether you choose to dine inside, with exposed brick walls and an open ceiling, or opt for outdoor seating on a patio overlooking the river, you simply cannot beat this venue.

What To Do After Dinner: NOMA Square
Voted as one of America’s best downtown’s by Forbes magazine, you can’t leave Greenville without enjoying any of the free community events during your time in town. And if you happen to be in Greenville between the months of May and September, there is none better than Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays. Hosted in NOMA square, a cornerstone of downtown, unwind from your week of exercise while you listen to a variety of live music, including jazz, blues, oldies and soul. And if you’d rather not dance, still make your way to Greenville’s largest plaza for a delicious slice of homemade Mackinac Island Fudge at Kilwins.
