ROADTRIP: The Nina Simone Plaza

By D. Lanier Shook                                            April 8, 2014

When you can find four towns snuggled together within a few minutes drive of a major metropolis, there’s no reason not to visit. That’s only one reason to visit Tryon-Landrum-Columbus-Saluda. They offer great shopping, dining, and arts less than an hour from Asheville and Greenville. They’re even closer to Hendersonville and Spartanburg.

This is the exquisite sculpture located across from Upstairs Artspace and the theater on Trade Street in Tryon.

The commitment to the arts is obvious in all four of these towns. One of the most striking examples in the Nina Simone Plaza in Tryon. This sculpture’s fluid exquisiteness will stop you in your tracks. Its located just south of the theater in downtown Tryon.

Nina Simone — born in Tryon— was a Grammy award winning musician and a civil rights pioneer. You can find out more about her life and the Plaza by visiting one of these links.

  2. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of
    this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get
    that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual
    appearance. I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Outstanding Blog!

  3. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution
    and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My
    apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
