This weekend Joshua and I are headed to Greenville, SC for the Eric Church concert. We also attended his concert there about two years ago. That trip was our first time to Greenville. And while we were blown away by Eric {he’s AMAZING in concert} we were even more blown away by the adorable little southern town! There are over 100 retailers including art galleries and specialty store in the downtown area. As well as local designer boutiques and national favorites like Anthropologie. Additionally, there are over 120 restaurants, right in the downtown! WHOA!

Last time we were there we stopped in a ton of the shops and dined at two of the restaurants. I honestly cannot remember the names as it’s been so long but once I walk by them this weekend, I’ll remember. I’ll update this post Monday with the names for you + reviews. UPDATE: We ate at The Nose Dive. Which we also dined at this trip. We headed there Sunday morning not even realizing it’s where we had eaten previously. Once we walked in though we both started to laugh. What are the chances haha. We also stopped into the cutest coffee shop right above Falls Park.  Which is an absolute must see while you’re in town!

    Little getaways and adventures are totally the best! Its always good to plan outfits so you don’t end up taking too much.

      Definitely agree! It was great to getaway, even just for 24 plus hours. Also agree on that. I almost always bring too much! I was only over by one outfit this time though.

      It’s so cute! I heard a lot about Spartanburg this weekend from a couple that sat next to us at the concert. Sounds pretty great as well!
