The Town of Columbus is a small town located in the Blue Ridge mountains of Western North Carolina, and is the county seat for Polk County, North Carolina. Columbus (population 999) is for perfect basecamp for horse and wine country in the foothills. In the historic downtown, see one of the oldest courthouses in North Carolina and grab lunch or dinner at a number of restaurants. It's an easy 42-mile drive from Asheville.
The next town over is Saluda, North Carolina which is a mountain oasis, with a picturesque Historic Downtown surrounded by rugged and accessible wilderness. The 18,000 acres of the Green River Gamelands and the Greenville Watershed have served as natural buffers, helping to preserve the inherent character of this mountain town.
Saluda’s unique history begins with the downtown district, perched at the top of the steepest railroad grade in the United States. Saluda is the premier destination for road biking in the Southeast. It has world famous whitewater, amazing fly fishing, and hundreds of waterfalls within striking distance. Visitors love Saluda for its eclectic nature and feel comfortable bringing a tent to camp in paradise or pampering themselves in a luxury inn.
