Live life in a beautiful spot between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the big city of Greenville in a Travelers Rest home. This city received its name because travelers would stop here for a rest before making their journey through the mountains in their Conestoga wagons. Many travelers would even have to spend the winter here in the early 1800’s while waiting for the snow to melt in the mountains so they could continue their journey.
Today, residents enjoy the small town feel with easy access to the amenities and attractions in town as well as in nearby cities. Travelers Rest is growing and a downtown revitalization project is underway. A few popular attractions right in Travelers Rest are The Tasting Room, Copperhead Mountain Distillery, Carolina Honey Bee Company, and Beechwood Farms. Find out more about the history of moonshine and how it is made at Copperhead Mountain Distillery. Join the friendly family owners for a fun time, samples, and snacks. Pick your own fresh produce for your Travelers Rest home at Beechwood Farms. Come for strawberries, pumpkins, sunflowers, corn, beans, tomatoes, and much more. Pick your own, grab some pre picked at the farm, or look for these veggies in local grocery stores or used in menus at local restaurants.
Many choose Travelers Rest real estate for a quiet life with plenty of opportunities to get outside. Travel along the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail, a part of the greenway system that runs along the Reedy River. This trail connects the old railway system between Travelers Rest and Greenville. Take a spur trail to get to Trailblazer Park. This fairly new park is home to the Travelers Rest Farmers Market, an open air amphitheater, and festival grounds. The views of the mountains from this location are gorgeous and offers a perfect place to bring the community together.
