Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center

Four quaint towns are the center of life in the Carolina Foothills. Tryon, Columbus and Saluda, NC and Landrum, SC. Together, they comprise the First Peak of the Blue Ridge, with great shopping, dining and just-browsing-around options a-plenty. But each town has its unique appeal, its special personality that differs it from its nearby brethren. Spend a day, or a lifetime, in any of the four, and you’ll soon be swept away by its small-town charms, its quality of life, its magical ability to take hold of you and never let go.

With waterfalls, mountains and rolling hills, recreation is almost unlimited in the Carolina Foothills. The area boasts luxurious golf courses, horse farms, fishing, boating and mountain biking to name just a few outdoor activities. From historic venues to wineries to an always-busy equestrian community, the Carolina Foothills offers plenty of fun things to do and see.

Hot Springs Welcome Center

Hot Springs, NC, a resort destination for almost 200 years, has long been renowned for its healing hot mineral springs, scenic mountain setting, and abundance of natural resources. Recently voted the Best Small Mountain Town from Georgia to West Virginia by readers of Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine, you will find we have a welcoming small town feeling. Just 40 minutes north of Asheville, we are located at the junction of the Appalachian Trail and the French Broad River in a valley surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Pisgah National Forest. Hot Springs is the only town in North Carolina where the Appalachian Trail runs directly down the main street.

This is a small town with a huge heart, and that is what truly endears it to the people who pass through or come to visit the springs. Everyone knows everyone, and everyone knows when a hiker, or a reporter, comes through town. Besides all the recreation opportunities, which are numerous, this welcoming atmosphere is what really defines Hot Springs. Visit us soon!
