... At a point, I
couldn’t go any further, because the wind was so strong, I was afraid I’d get
blown over on the wet rocks. When we
were done, we started making the hike back down. Although we had the falls to ourselves, we
saw quite a few people hiking up on our way down. A nice thing about camping at the park is you
can get an early start and avoid the crowds.
... the woods and get behind the falls, but we decided against it. We just hung out here for a while, had a snack and enjoyed the view before making our way back. Justine and the others continued on to see High Falls and Triple Falls, but Sandy and I were getting tired and had already seen these falls so we decided to make our way back home after another waterfall-tastic ...
... In a New York minute!" Well, this was that New York minute, even though it didn't last a full 60 seconds. The only really bummer part of it is that Judy and I both realized immediately that it'll be the last solo trip I'll ever take. That's hard to cope with, being such a travel freak as I am. But it's right, no matter how disappointing it is.
Thanks for going along with me, even just from an armchair or a laptop.
... by a mysterious bug (or plant).
We continued down 100/41 to the beautiful town of White Springs. We stopped at a wayside park on the historic and scenic Suwanee River.
We cruised on through Georgia and made it to Anderson in time for dinner. Thanks to Steve we had an amazing lasagna dinner.
Tomorrow we start our journey.
... to some local band perform during the arts show. I can honestly say that there is something really quaint about this town.
As well as being a normal town little boutiques as well as chain shops there was a waterfall in the middle of the town which I have never seen before which turned out to be a pleasant surprise.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Westin Poinsett, Greenville
We loved the location of the hotel as it was downtown and very convenient to areas of town we needed to get to for a wedding. We walked down the streets of Greenville two days in a row. The tree lined streets were beautiful both day and night. Many shops to explore and a few eateries and ice cream parlors.
I got an excellent rate on priceline. I was pumped! The hotel is old. It looks nice and am happy with the price I paid, but had I paid regular price (or even travelocity price) I would have been very upset. I won't return simply because I was not impressed... I recommend Crowne Plaza-Roper Mtn in Greenville!
A wonderful Hotel in a Wonderful location. Beautiful historic hotel with one of the most beautiful lobbies you will ever see. Location in the quaint dowtown Greenville area cannot be beat. If you want to book, book on Priceline. I can get this hotel for under $70 most nights. It is an incredible value either way!
We always stay at the Westin Pointsett!
We always stay at the Pointsett. We love the decor and the old Southern charm of the hotel. Staff is very nice, we always get good service from the valets and housekeeping(It doesn't hurt to tip them) The heavenly beds are the main reason we stay here.The restaurant is good, if a little pricy, but the service is always good there as well.Lots of other places to eat within easy walking distance. I am going to plug a local favorite-do not miss the ice cream at the Marble Slab right down the street. Wonderful!
Wonderful old hotel
We have stayed at the Poinsett twice and have never had a complaint about any aspect of our stay. The rooms have been extremely clean and the staff has always been very helpful. The location is great. Downtown Greenville is very charming and offers lots of shopping and culture. I highly recommend the Poinsett to anyone who wants a break from the normal chain hotels. This place has lots of character.
Westin Poinsett is a great deal
The hotel is absolutely beatiful. Especially the lobby and restaurant. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The heavenly bed is a perfect description. The service is wonderful and the main street area has everything anyone could want.
I loved the heavenly bath products, but they have switched to some very nasty smelling alternative.
The best part about the this hotel is that you can book it for $60.00 on priceline. This is during the week and on the weekends. Do not pay full price.
We loved the location of the hotel--it was great to walk around Main Street, especially at night. The room was very average and we were missing some things, including our ice bucket, and the bathroom floor was dirty when we arrived. We also had difficulty controlling the temperature. It was very humid, even with the air conditioner, and we never got comfortable. Overall, we were disappointed and expected a nicer room since we'd heard so much about the renovation. For what you pay, you'd be better off staying at a Hampton Inn. Still, the lobby and restaurant were very beautiful and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The Poinsett Room is also gorgeous and looks like it would be a wonderful place for a wedding reception.
A little disappointed
The Heavenly Beds were outstanding, however we did not have some of the other Heavenly items in our room as described. i.e. Bath Sheet, bath robes, dual-head shower. The rooms were nice, and adequately equipped. The housekeeping left something to be desired. The second day we had to call to have the bathroom floor cleaned of hair from the previous occupants. They also did not change our bedsheets daily. Did not appreciate being awakened at 5:30 a.m. by the alarm clock left on from the previous occupants, and then again at 7:00a.m. from the brick street cleaner. Did not eat at the hotel, however downtown Greenville is extremely charming with an abundance of various shops and dining experiences.
We too, stayed at the Westin Hotel. Downtown Greenville is a wonderful place to visit. We even found time to visit The Spa at West End. It is a first class spa that is worth a visit if you travel to Greenville..
Downtown Greenville Westin
The Westin Poinsett is a first class hotel. Situated in downtown Greenville, the old hotel has been re-built from top to bottom. The staff was friendly and helpful, and free transportation was provided to and from the airport. The rooms are large and clean, although floor in the bathroom is really nice, it is cold on the feet. A heat lamp would be a good addition. We stayed on the weekend, when the rate was lower. The hotel also has a great brunch on Sunday morning.
