Outdoor Fun and Competitive Sports: Re-Create Yourself in Spartanburg!

It’s easy to love the outdoors in Spartanburg County. There is so much to do you may never want to go back inside! Bring your kayak, canoe and hiking boots to explore our blueways and greenways; grab your bikes and hit miles of roads or trails. Spend an overnight camping or a just day fishing at our own Croft State Park. Whether you are coming for a sports tournament or for one of our signature events, you’ll find Spartanburg offers many opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.

And just a few miles from the great outdoors is Spartanburg’s amazing downtown, where you'll find shops, restaurants, music and events, and public art that will have you thinking big city. But when you talk with the people, you'll realize you've found small-town friendly. Art, culture and fun all have a home here. Plus our lakes, rivers and parks beg to be explored. Come see for yourself.
