Happy Wednesday!

I’m back with the travel series to spill the beans on my favorite places to eat in Greenville, South Carolina. This summer Mr. M and I went to Greenville for an extended Memorial Day Weekend getaway. It was our first time in Greenville together and it was our first Air BnB experience! Mr. M was a little hesitant about actually staying in someone’s house, so he said if this didn’t go well, we wouldn’t be doing it again.

Our First Air BnB Experience

Luckily, our first Air BnB experience was absolutely amazing. We stayed at a little place close to downtown Greenville called The Studio. The host was phenomenal in touching base with us, and even stopped by to say hello one morning. Because I shout “we’re newlyweds!” from the rooftops, she even left a baby orchid for us and a sweet note welcoming us to their home. The Studio was the perfect mix of modern and cozy. It had a stove and oven where we could cook breakfast, organic and ethically produced coffee beans, and – most importantly, a comfy bed. She even left little chocolates on our pillows for us!

10/10 would Recommend

(If you’ve never signed up for airbnb before but would like to try it, you can do so here! By booking through this referral link, you’re giving Mr.M and I the opportunity to get travel credit so we can tell you about more adventures!)

Our stay in Greeneville was so short, but we made sure to spend a lot of time outside and most importantly, eating great food.

Jamaica Mi Irie

Our first stop for lunch was at this amazing Jamaican restaurant in downtown. We sat outside and each picked out a lunch special. Mr. M had jerk chicken and I tried the curry chicken. They gave us SO much food for only $6 each, and they even topped our meals off with the most delicious tropical tea I’ve ever had. I came back to work and raved about it to my Jamaican co-worker.

Fall at Reedy Park

If you need to take a break between all the eating you do on vacation, I recommend going for a stroll around Fall Park on the Reedy. This park is behind Furman University and is a favorite for wedding and prom photos. There is a beautiful, massive waterfall and a gorgeous walking trail around the park. My favorite landmark is this tree with exposed roots. (You may recognize this tree from Monday’s post.)

Spill the Beans

Greenville in the summer time is basically a heat bath of humidity, so it was absolutely necessary that we avoid a heatstroke with ice cream. We checked out this cute little ice cream shop, Spill the Beans, right beside Fall Park. Our bellies and our souls were satisfied.

Tandem Creperie 

OK, y’all. I saved the best for last. TANDEM. CREPERIE. This little gem of a creperie is located outside of Greenville in this precious little spot called “Traveler’s Rest.” It will be a mandatory stop along the way any and every time I pass through this adorable little town. But y’all. These were the best crepes I’ve ever had. Mr. M with the savory and I went with the sweet this time, and then we split it in half. (This is really the way to go, my friends.) But I almost didn’t want to share my sweet crepe because it was mainly blueberry yogurt and whipped cream.

If I had more time, I would have taken a thousand photos of and around this little place because it was just too adorable. We need an Indie film to come shoot a movie here.

We had a great time in Greenville, and we definitely did not get to uncover as many of this city’s littl gems as we wanted. Greenville is a perfect little short weekend getaway. and if you have a hankering to watch Clemson play, they’re pretty close, too. 🙂 (Let it be noted, though, I know nothing about football. I don’t even know if Clemson is good. I just think somehow they pull off orange and purple quite nicely.)

Have you been to Greenville before? What are your favorite things to do on your weekend getaways?
