Travelers Rest is starting to look more & more like my kinda place, but I want to make sure it's not TOO podunk.

I recently traveled to a similarly-sized town in Georgia and was stunned to find that some of the retail businesses (including a furniture store & two florists) were not open on weekends! I would think that Saturday would probably be one of their busiest days if they were open.

Also surprising was our difficulty finding a restaurant that served alcohol. Pizza Hut served beer and the Mexican restaurant served Margaritas made with white wine in lieu of tequila. There were a couple of liquor stores and 2-3 beer bars; however, the only place that served cocktails was the American Legion.

So, does the town close up at dusk and on weekends? Can I go to a Mexican restaurant and get a REAL margarita???

I try to stay out of that area as much as possible...lol, but I do know that Travelers Rest is a short trip up 25 from Greenville. So you may not be able to go down the street and grab a beer, you might have to drive into Greenville.
And there are several Mexican places on 25, just outside of TR that I know for a fact have full service bars.

But the only place you can be served on a sunday is in the Gville city limits.

TR is really close to 2 Universities, so yes there is an abundance of alcohol available.

I'm not looking for nightlife...we're usually in bed by 10:00. However, we usually go out to dinner on the weekends and I like to have a glass of wine with my steak or a margarita with my fajitas.

We recently visited the area and had dinner at Trio in downtown Greenville. Very good.



, so Honey, we're
