Don't let Saluda's size fool you. This tiny city of 570 full-time residents boasts quite a quality selection of restaurants, shops, and live music wrapped in beautiful scenery. The one-street downtown hasn't changed much since it was founded in 1878, and that's a good thing!
It's a favorite of travelers, and many wonderful inns, town cottages and secluded cabins are still eager to offer rest and rejuvenation. Escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life will certainly offer health benefits – and Saluda's the perfect place to do it. A walk down main street will fill your senses – browse the antique shops and galleries, walk back in time with a visit to Pace's General Store, have a delicious meal. The Green River is nearby, offering fishing, hiking, tubing and kayaking.
