Just a few short miles from Asheville and Lake Lure, NC and Greenville, SC along Hwy 176/108 is the lovely and rustic town of Tryon. Sheltered by adjacent Tryon Peak, whose elevation reaches over 3,200ft, and enclosed by lush hillsides, Tryon sits within an isothermal belt, which creates cooler temperatures in summer and warmer winter climates than typical North Carolina hillside towns, cementing Tryon as a key tourist attraction and vacationers’ paradise. Tryon’s geography and climate also make it ideal for growing grapes and has inspired the establishment of five delightful wineries.
More than just a charming rural town, Tryon has a storied history as a cultural landmark, as it has been home to many authors, artists and musicians since the early 1900s. One can never call it a one-horse town, either, because it is a destination site for many world-famous equestrian events. Tryon’s International Equestrian Center features horse competitions, presentations, classes and equine-focused entertainment that everyone will enjoy. Music lovers will find events to tickle their fancy at Tryon’s own amphitheater and Summer concert series.
Tryon’s charming historic downtown is devoted to art galleries, craft exhibits, book and antique stores and other shopping venues, restaurants, coffee shops, lodging and more. Tryon also has walking tours of its downtown area, as well as local farms, orchards, stables and vineyards. Or relax with golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking or water sports – whatever you’re looking for, Tryon has it wrapped up it in an exquisite verdant bow.
If you love beauty, tranquility and splendor, try on Tryon for size. It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
