15 Things To Do This Summer In Upstate South Carolina

Yes, it's finally that time! Classes are ending and the summer vibes are sinking in. While I might be taking summer classes and working, there's still time to live it up and soak up some sun this summer. Here's a few fun and local ideas for those of you that haven't figured out your plans just yet and want to stay close to the upstate home.

1. Carowinds

Call everything off for a day on the lazy river or the fastest roller-coaster. Or even get season passes to your favorite amusement park and take all the friends you can.

2. Concerts

Look up concerts happening near you, so many people tour during this time and I'm sure you can find something you are interested in. Also, I know downtown Greenville always has festivals or events where local bands can celebrate their music with the community, and they are usually free or cheap.

3. Local museums

This is probably better for those super humid days, stay inside activities with AC.

4. Greenville Zoo

No one is never too old for the zoo.

5. City Scape Winery

It's in Pelzer, and I am sure the wine and cute sitting areas are worth it.

6. Nature trails

There's one at Lake Conestee Nature Park and other beautiful areas for free or little cost.

7. GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail

Good for some exercise, but walking or biking all through Greenville has some nice views.

8. Falls Park on the Reedy River Picnic

Or anything in downtown, like shopping or garbing some really good Asian food.

9. Golfing

They are sprinkled all throughout South Carolina if you are interested.

10. Discovery Island Waterpark

Not too expensive and fun with kids and dipping dots.

11. Greenville Center for Creative Arts

Definitely worth the masterpieces you can paint with friends.

12. SkyZone

Some of the best dodgeball matches ever happen here.

13. Guitar Center

Conveniently in the same plaza as Skyzone on Laurens Road. It's great for music lovers to just play the day away on all kinds of different instruments.

14. Visit the local mountains

Pairs Mountain and Caesar's Head are great spots to chill or spend time in the cool waters.

15. Lake Hartwell

There are so many things you could do at not just this lake, like fishing, boating, cookouts, and camping. You get the idea.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
