Looking for a quick weekend Getaway? Getaway to Greenwood, SC! Look no further than the Inn on the Square in Greenwood, SC. Located in the heart of the uptown district, the Inn on the Square is the perfect place to spend a few days for a little fun. Call the hotel and inquire with the front desk and ask for special weekend rates and packages. (864) 330-1010.
Greenwood lies roughly an hour from the two closest largest cities, Greenville and Columbia. Greenwood is only an easy couple hour drive from Georgia, North Carolina, and the South Carolina Coast. When everyone else is headed for the Lowcounty, beat the rush and head to the Upcountry. Temperatures are typically ten degrees cooler and the chance of rain significantly less. No need to do any research on what to do. We’ve already done the leg work for you, and we’ve got an action packed weekend for you June 29-July 1! Including the Festival of Flowers, Festival of Stars, and Lights on the Lake! There is something for everyone in this lineup.
Lake Greenwood is the perfect place for boating, fishing, camping and a number of water sports and activities to keep you busy.
~Greenwood, South Carolina is home to Lake Greenwood. This lake was created by a hydroelectric dam built across the Saluda River, with more than 212 miles of coastline, and 11,400 acres of surface area.
Take an early afternoon and drive into Greenwood and check in at the Inn on the Square with their four o’clock arrivals. Allowing just enough time to get unpacked and head down to the fox and hound for a nice glass of wine, locally crafted beer, or a refreshing cocktail. If you’re hungry from your trip, there is a light bar menu to choose from or feel free to order dinner from the dining room. Each night featuring different specials. Thursday just happens to be steak night where you can score a three course Filet Mignon meal for 17.95!
Topiary Tours, Wine, and Jazz Thursday!
At 6pm walk across the street for a guided topiary tour of uptown. Here you’ll experience some of the Souths finest Master Gardners as they walk you through each of our 43 “signature” topiaries. I’d suspect that will last a little over an hour perhaps. Surely it will conclude just in time for you to finish the tour at the Art’s Center for “Jazz at the Gallery”. The evening will include live jazz by Greenwood’s very own Steven Galloway & the Jr’s to ease you into a wonderful evening of art, jazz, and fellowship. There will be food, beer and wine available for purchase. One of the great benefits to staying at the Inn is you’re just a short walk home to your pillow at The Inn on the Square.
Friday morning, wake up and head downstairs to the dining room for a complimentary, cooked to order, hot breakfast. This breakfast is worth the stay. You have your choice of four of ten house made breakfast items. Surely the right start for any adventure’s day! Friday afternoon you have a list of options to fill your day. We’re happy give you directions to near by peach farms for hand picked harvesting. The Greenwood Museum is also currently showcasing a dinosaur discovery tour that is great for kids. We can’t count out an afternoon at the Greenwood Market featuring local farmers, producers, and our one year old interactive splash pad for a quick cool down! Head across the street and grab a pie from the Mill House, best Brick oven pizza and craft beer brewery in the region.
Country Music History comes to life Friday Night!
Not into pizza and beer? Head back to the hotel for Fish Friday and get yourself ready for the 96 Festival of Stars concert featuring country music’s Aaron Tippin! Yes. you read that right, County legend Aaron Tippin! Here’s another perk to staying at Greenwood’s very own Inn on the Square. We have a complimentary shuttle that will provide transportation for hotel guests to and from the concert Friday night! No need to worry about a thing… We’ve got you covered! Check with the front desk at check in to arrange shuttle transportation. Seats are limited, so be sure to do that in advance.
