Since the turn of the century, Saluda has been a favorite vacation destination; an escape from the heat and from the hectic pace of life. Nestled at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Saluda is small enough to retain a refreshingly old fashioned small town feel while still offering a wide range of activities and events for residents and visitors. It is convenient to many wilderness areas and offers an exceptional variety of outdoor adventures, including whitewater kayaking, tubing or paddle boarding on the Green River, The Gorge Zip Line, mountain biking, waterfall repels, fly fishing and hiking. Saluda also offers a variety of shops and galleries offering fine American craft, antiques, gems and clothing, as well as many beautiful options for lodging. Home to numerous well known visual artists and sitting atop the Saluda Grade, the steepest standard-gauge mainline railway grade in the United States, the town has a rich cultural and historical heritage. The surrounding area has even more to explore. Hope to see you soon!
