Places to Stay
April is a busy time of year in the Carolinas, so we advise booking your hotel rooms as soon as possible. To be near the start and finish lines, you may want to book a room in Asheville on Friday and Greenville on Saturday. Another option is to plan your whole stay in downtown Greenville.
