Saluda Business Association launches ‘Saluda Adventure Guide’
Published 9:11 am Monday, May 20, 2013
The Saluda Business Association wants the community and visitors to this small mountain village to experience the outdoors in Saluda and has published the first “Saluda Adventure Guide.”
Highlighting Saluda trails and the Green River Gorge, the guide is a very colorful 12”x 25” two sided map with hiking trails, road bike trails, whitewater adventures, and other recreation activities that pass through or around Saluda. The map will fold down to a 3”x5” pocket size booklet, with a durable cover. For the less “adventurous,” opportunities featured include walking and driving routes, birding and wildflower sites, and the best scenic views in Saluda.
Thirty-five Saluda businesses sponsored the funding of the guide along with contributions from Polk County Economic Development, the City of Saluda and the Saluda Business Association. The guides will sell for $2 and will be available from business sponsors by early June. An online Flipbook will soon follow and be accessible at saluda.com/adventureguide.
“The Saluda Adventure Guide has been in the SBA long-range marketing plan for more than three years. With the opening of The Gorge™, and more attention given to whitewater adventures on the Green River, and other multi-sport events, this is the perfect time to publish this guide,” says SBA spokesperson.
Carolina Blue Design Group, Hendersonville designed and illustrated the guide and maps.
Saluda abounds with natural assets. It’s our duty to the heritage of Saluda to celebrate and promote its artistic culture, historic buildings, and the natural beauty of our mountains and waterfalls.
