Southwest Airlines + SC Upstate + Biking

It's no joke (Happy April Fool's Day!) that Southwest Arilines is featuring the Greenville/Spartanburg community as a destination in their latest edition of in-flight travel magazine. As you may know, Southwest just started offering flights to and from the area at the Greenville/Spartanburg airport in March.

If you read the article, whether it's online or in flight, Southwest does a great job of featuring the different parts of Greenville, Spartanburg and Clemson. In the text of the article, Spartanburg is featured "as one of the most bike-friendly cities in the state." I've also heard that there is supposed to be a fold out map of the bike facilities of the City of Greenville in the middle of the in flight magazine.

It's a nice snapshot of a few of the communities in the Upstate. And, if folks are inspired to travel our way, they'll also see what other great communities contribute to the unique northwest corner of the state.

(Full Disclosure:  I don't know anyone who works for Southwest, I just think it's cool that our community is featured in a National magazine!)
