Aiken Hotels: A Local's GuideAiken means horses. Not only does the city stand at the center of South Carolina's "Thoroughbred Country," it also serves as one of the polo capitals of the world. The popular Aiken Triple Crown, which is held each spring, features flat racing, steeplechase racing, and polo.
Historic downtown Aiken is home to many of the city's attractions, including Hitchcock Woods and the Aiken County Historical Museum. Many of the streets are lined with specialty shops, restaurants, and bars. Don't forget to grab a beer at the Aiken Brewing Company on Laurens Street!
Northeast Aiken offers cheaper hotels that are just a short drive from the downtown area, while hotels near USC Aiken are even closer. Most South Aiken hotels are located on or near Whiskey Road — not quite Bourbon Street, but this area is home to Hopeland Gardens and the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame.
