Although you’ve probably seen the name Landrum as you cross into South Carolina, chances are you have no idea just what you’re missing. This town is the perfect place to stop and stretch your legs after you come off of the Saluda Grade. Grab a cup of coffee, browse the downtown, and you might just decide to stay a little bit longer.
Landrum is an attractive travel destination because its so close to so much. Its just down the mountain from Hendersonville, Flat Rock, and Saluda. It’s next to Tryon and Columbus. Its just north of Spartanburg and on the way to Greenville if you choose to take the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway (Highway 11).
Downtown Landrum is less than a mile southwest of I-26 Exit One. You should click here to visit the town’s website and learn about their historic downtown. That’s also the place to find out about their weekly Farmer’s Market, or take a Virtual Tour.
