Landrum | Tryon | Saluda
Landrum, South Carolina, and Saluda and Tryon, North Carolina are among the Carolinas' finest horse country. Equestrian activities, including the Tryon Riding and Hunting Club's annual Block House Steeplechase, and the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center bring horse lovers from all parts to race and raise their thoroughbreds. For those who enjoy softer adventures, spend an afternoon at one of Tryon's ten vineyards, including Rockhouse Vineyards, where you can taste and purchase the house's Chardonnay, Chambourcin, Merlot, and Viognier. Peppered with protected parklands, waterfalls, and whitewater rapids, Polk County, North Carolina offers some of the most scenic drives and abundant recreation in the Carolina Preserve - a perfect place for family fun. Rated among Money magazine's and The Wall Street Journal's best places to retire, the Saluda-Tryon-Landrum area surrounding The Cliffs Communities is one of the many vibrant towns waiting to be discovered and enjoyed time and again.
