There are more than 30 new entries in this 2018 edition of the 112-page guidebook. If you’re looking for late-night music, anti-gravity yoga, oddball yard art, LGBT-friendly clubs, bike trails or Patagonia gear, this guidebook is for you.
This project was funded by the City of Spartanburg and the Spartanburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. There are sections on nightlife, eats, arts, outside, shopping and odds & ends.
The guide is produced for both locals and visitors. Several colleges use it in student orientation, and businesses use it for employee recruitment.
The Underground Guide recommends ethnic restaurants that are authentic and out of the way. It tells readers where to buy music gear, get a tattoo, rent a kayak and chow down after midnight. There are spotlights on the Deadly Dolls roller derby team, the Sparkle City Mini-Putt, the Scuba Shop, and the Northwoods Alpaca Farm, along with more than 200 others and plenty of photographs.
