Kids Can Spend The Day Playing Around At A Free Outdoor Playground And Airport Runway In South Carolina

For anyone fascinated with airplanes, there’s a hidden gem tucked into the perimeter of the Greenville Downtown Airport that is a must-visit if you have small kids in your brood. Kids (and kids at heart) will enjoy Runway Park equally as much as the park’s proximity to regular small planes taking off and landing only steps away from this hidden little gem.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
