Greenville, SC or Nashville, TN for weekend getaway.

We have never traveled to Nashville or Greenville....not country music folks but like the outdoors, biking, hiking, craft brews and varied dining. We only have 3-4 nights available and wondered which destination would give us the best bang for our buck? We will have a car available so we can head outside the city. Your thoughts on which has more charm, scenery and activity???

Five years ago I would have said Nashville.Today I'd say Greenville.If nothing else than its proximity to the foothills and mountains.

We have visited Asheville and Gaitlinburg but have heard so much about Nashville. Our trip to Nashville might include a stop in Chattanooga as well. Hoping someone chimes in with biking experience in either city.

Do you know about the Swamp Rabbit Trail? It starts in downtown Greenville and heads northwest through the Furman University campus on to Travelers Rest.Its probably the most popular rails-to-trails venue on the east coast.

Also, check out George Hincapie's Hotel Domestique just north of Greenville. The Greenville area just north of town is becoming a cycleing destination.

Did you decide yet? Based on everything you've said, you're describing Greenville almost exactly. I haven't been to Nashville yet but I do know you're in closer proximity to mountains and outdoorsy stuff here than Nashville. We have amazing breweries and restaurants too.

We are aware of Hincapie's Hotel and part of the reason for Greenville. Unfortunately, there are some family matters that may force us to delay this trip until fall. Thanks for all the input which will be very helpful down the road.
