Where To Stay

  • Where to stay downtown including specific apartments/condos for rent through VRBO

  • Our favorite Inn that has bike rentals and a quirky attitude. It makes any stay there memorable and fun.

  • The lodging choices for each destination have been carefully selected  for their ideal location, price point, safety, and proximity to the day’s activities. We tell you the best area to stay so you  can minimize driving or walking distances and maximize your moments having fun. Knowing what part of town to stay in is a huge part of  making a trip a success, and that’s hard to do when you are not familiar with a destination. We save you time and energy by doing all the  research for you.

Where To Eat  

  • Greenville is a foodie’s dream- this must be one of the most densely packed downtowns in America for delicious restaurants per block. We list our favorites, from quick and casual to the more expensive places that you write home about.

  • Top choices for dining- the kind of local places where children are welcome but isn't necessarily a restaurant geared primarily towards kids. You won't find many restaurant chains in our itineraries, just good local food mirroring the destination's culture. This could mean a food truck, a pizza place, or a nice sit-down restaurant, but always delicious. If there are any local brews, specialty foods, wines, or coffee houses around, we'll mention those too.

Where To Play

  • A walking tour of downtown with our family’s favorite stops and even a scavenger hunt that will entertain kids of all ages

  • A detailed description of the Swamp Rabbit Trail, including places to eat and explore along the way

  • Where to go hiking near Greenville and enjoy some of the best views in the upstate

  • Rainy day activities in case mother nature isn’t cooperating

  • Best playgrounds downtown, our favorite shops to explore with kids, and other tidbits to make your time in Greenville fun for everyone

  • The organization of each day has been thoughtfully planned in order to group activities together by proximity, ideal time of day to visit, and the best nearby dining choices. It’s all been laid out for you, along with directions, maps, travel tips, links to more info, and more. We cover the most worthwhile activities to do in a destination (based on our own family’s reviews) without forgetting that vacations are meant to be fun and relaxing, not a list to be checked off while hauling around whining children.

  • You’ll find plenty of outdoor activities for the family as well as cultural and historical sites unique to the destination. Many of our itineraries include easy hikes, bike rides, and float trips that have been selected for their kid-friendly length and ease of difficulty as well as their scenic beauty. (Always worth it!) We are all about getting families outdoors so we include as much fresh air as we can in our itineraries, whether it is a day-long trek in a national park or just the location of a fantastic playground perfect for a break from sight-seeing.
