One of South Carolina’s many small towns offering big fun for your weekend is the town of Easley. This Upstate location is west of the city of Greenville and boasts a charming downtown that boomed in the textile days. Now it has settled into a pleasant place to call home and a fun destination for exploration. Ingles Markets is sponsoring their Fourth of July festival this year, and that’s just one of the many community events that happen here throughout the year.
When you’re here, kick off your day with an Easley institution at Joe’s. This place is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and that means you have the chance to taste the product of decades of success. This is quintessential diner fare at its best: burgers, dogs, shakes, ice cream, and their most famous item, the banana split.
Next up, trade one cultural institution for another that has audiences cheering for more than the food. It’s the Foothills Playhouse, a community theatre that makes a great stop for a matinee or an evening performance.
This place is in its fourth decade of live theatre, with plays, musicals, comedians, recitals, and more. It’s where local talent pour their passion into amazing entertainment, and it’s ready and waiting for you.
To finish off your day in Easley, go find some Good Karma. To be more specific, check out Good Karma Consignment and Ice Cream. If you’re looking for some cool threads, unique gift ideas, and just a fun shopping experience, this is a great place to stop. And when you’ve finished, grab some more ice cream because you can never have enough ice cream.
Ingles Markets is all about supporting small towns and the communities we call home, and Easley is a fantastic example of that wonderful relationship. Make sure and head to the Fourth of July festival, and then plan a return trip to check out some of these great spots. Your weekend is waiting on the Ingles Open Road.
