Saluda Reviews

All my life I lived in Saluda, SC. We are base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and have several lakes nearby. It's a really small town but it's really nice, quiet, and with friendly people. In this town, we all a community and also we have different cultures that people love. It is a beautiful place to live in and cultural. I love the slow pace and familiarity of our lifestyle. One thing I would change in this town is that they should build more factories in the area and company businesses too.

Saluda is a very small town. The people here are friendly and everyone knows each other. However, people in Saluda can tend to be closed-minded. Also, there is not much opportunity in Saluda.
