The Family Outing

Make Memories Together

The best family trips are the ones with memories that last a lifetime. Experience adventures designed for travelers of any age, so you can spend time with the people you love the most.

Adventure More

No matter if you’re a kid or a kid at heart, adventures are waiting to be explored in Spartanburg. Featuring exhibits best enjoyed by children ages 5 and under, The Children’s Museum of the Upstate is a great way to kick off your visit. For those a bit older, head downtown for Sparkle City Mini Putt, the only free, urban mini-golf course in South Carolina.

Grab Some Grub

Refueling the little ones and finding a place that meets everyone’s cravings doesn’t have to be stressful. With plenty of kid-friendly restaurants, Spartanburg has a variety of options for the whole family to enjoy.

If you need some inspiration, Flock Shop features a menu full of fried chicken options such as Nashville-style hot chicken for those with daring tastebuds. Let your kids build up an appetite and burn off some energy before the meal only a short walk away at the NFL Play:60 obstacle course and the Vic Bailey Subaru Bike Park on the Mary Black Rail Trail.
