With a history that predates the Revolutionary War, Spartanburg became known as Hub City in the 1800s, when it served as a major railroad center. Today, the upstate South Carolina town is home to a growing food scene, cultural destinations, and plenty of small-town charm. Locals ride bicycles through town, shop farmers’ markets, visit museums and art galleries, and get into nature with weekend hikes and lake trips.
