TR is nice and small and the people of the town are really friendly. There are numerous places to eat, drink coffee, and get outside! Tandem Creperie and Coffee House is especially delicious!

Travelers Rest is a cute, small town in upstate South Carolina. There is a main street in town that has many local restaurants, shops, and various other vendors. The Swamp Rabbit Trail runs through the whole town, which makes it a hot spot for active/outdoor people to bike, run, walk. It's a family centered town and I enjoy living here.
Travelers Rest is a great welcoming small town. We have people from all over the U.S. that live here. The schools are great and classes are small. We have many new restaurants and shops in our booming dowtown as well as a thriving community of runners and cyclists! The Swamp Rabbit Trail provides easy access to the nearby city of Greenville.
