Known as the gateway to the Blue Ridge Mountains, there is a town in northern Greenville County, South Carolina called Travelers Rest. Hence its name, mountaineers, hikers, and others would stay here to prepare for their northward journey or energize after an arduous journey.

Travelers Rest was traditionally considered an ideal stop outside the Blue Ridge Mountains, especially if there was hazardous winter weather in the area. The city has a comprehensive plan, recently updated and published on its website at www.travelersrestsc.com. Travelers Rest’s population is over 4,500.
