A Well Spent Day In Spartanburg, South Carolina
Spartanburg, South Carolina is a town full of history, beauty, and culture. My recent visit to this charming area was filled with great food and interesting places. My first stop was to the Spartanburg Chamber of Commerce where the helpful staff told me about the points of interest in the area. I’m a history buff, so my first stop was the Seay House, built in the 1790’s and known to be the first homestead in the city. The next stop was the Pacolet River Flood Sculpture, a memorial to the victims of the flood of 1903.
After indulging in an amazing pulled pork sandwich, I decided to walk it off at the Hatcher Garden and Preserve, a 10-acre garden complete with ponds and waterfalls. Relaxed after my nature walk, I opted for a quick stop into the Hub City Railroad Museum for a history of rail transport in South Carolina. My day in Spartanburg had been full of interesting places and I wanted to top it off with a real southern style meal. I headed to a local Fish Camp and enjoyed fried catfish and fresh pecan pie. I took a slow walk around Spartanburg’s friendly downtown before heading back to my hotel room. I look forward to coming back to Spartanburg soon.
