The Curious Explorer

Stay Curious

Let’s face it, sometimes you get the itch to discover something new. Whether you’ve been to Spartanburg before or are visiting for the first time, this itinerary (and our county) is full of hidden gems. Go off-the-grid and into Spartanburg’s quaint Southern towns.

Urban Excursions

Be sure to pack your comfy shoes so you can take full advantage of the quaint downtowns bursting with charm around Spartanburg. If you’re looking for something unique, stop into Market on Main in downtown Spartanburg and shop handmade goods from local artisans. For those who enjoy searching for the perfect antiques, head up the road to Landrum for some of the South’s best antique shops.

Dine & Wine

Our food scene is sure to surprise you. For a new dining experience right on Morgan Square, try Carolinian cuisine at The Tulip Tree or an untraditional BBQ dish from Initial Q. Or head into the countryside for a traditional taste of the South with a meat and three at The Mustard Seed in Woodruff, or fried green tomatoes at Landrum’s Stone Soup Market & Cafe. Whatever you choose, wash it down with a delectable glass of wine in one of Spartanburg’s boutique wine shops.
