ROADTRIP: Tryon’s Horse

By D. Lanier Shook                                      August 18, 2014

Have you ever been to a town where music is frozen, horses are welcome on the streets, and ties are hanging from the power lines? If you haven’t you need to visit Tryon, North Carolina. This town on the border of North and South Carolina is an incredible mix of arts, crafts, style, food, and shopping.

This is the horse and those are the ties hanging from the powerlines in the background.

Evidently this isn’t the first horse Tryon has had. For more information about this horse and its predecessors you can click here to visit the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce. That’s also a great place to find out about the entire area which includes Landrum, Columbus, and Saluda. Between them they make a great way to spend a day, several days, or a week — or more.

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

You can also click here to visit the Explore Tryon website, which features even more great photos of the horse. To read about the Nina Simone sculpture you can click here to read our Roadtrip article from April. These links will give you even more reasons to pop down the mountain to visit Tryon.

To me that is the biggest reason to visit Tryon. Its very close, under an hour. Its on the way to Spartanburg. Its convienient. It will save you time and money while feeding your need for arts, crafts, culture, and shopping. What more could you ask for?
