Greenville BBQ Trail tour ($45)
Meet in hotel lobby.
While Downtown Greenville’s familiar culinary scene has some great BBQ options, this tour will take you outside of the city center to the places locals know and love. These are the types of joints with smoke stacks sticking out of the rooftops and white smoke billowing out of the chimneys–smoking the meats right on the premises.
The Greenville BBQ Trail tour is your opportunity to try back-to-back tastings of what are considered by many to be among the top BBQ spots in the city. A shuttle van will be leaving from the hotel at 3:15 pm.
Walking Tour of Swamp Rabbit Trail (Free)
Meet in hotel lobby.
The access to the trail is about a half mile walk slightly down hill from the hotel. Running along the scenic Reedy River on a historic rail bed, the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail Network is a 22 mile multi-use greenway system. Opened in 2009, this trail has experienced continual growth and offers fun, non-motorized recreation and transportation opportunities. Meet in the hotel lobby after breakout sessions end at 2:45.
These are options that are available to people not taking one of the group tours or participating in the Enneagram sessions. These are not organized group tours, but you are free to visit these options on your own. All three of these locations are open until 5:00 pm.
