Living in the Carolina Foothills

One of the first things you’ll notice about living in Polk County or Landrum is the friendliness of the people. Tryon is known as ‘The Friendliest Town In The South,’ but that moniker could be bestowed upon the area as a whole. Be it a helpful tip from the staff at the county offices in Columbus, directions from a merchant on Saluda’s Main Street or a friendly wave from a grocer at Tryon’s supermarket, you’ll never be a stranger in the Carolina Foothills. In that spirit, we offer a guide to living in the Carolina Foothills, resources to help answer questions you might have about your daily routine here.
