Saluda Reviews

1 review
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.
