Happenings of Saluda

Saluda Lifestyles is an online newspaper in its 11th year of publication that is all about “what’s happening” in the small mountain town of Saluda, NC. In 2006, a printed version was created to service the citizens of Saluda who didn’t use computers and wanted to know what was going on in Saluda. The printed version is funded through the generous support of 13-15 business owners in Saluda.

Saluda Lifestyles is published the first day of the month and then a mid-month issue to keep Saludians up to date on events and activities in Saluda.

It is a free publication and we invite you to subscribe.

February, Vol 129 -Savoring Saluda: A red glow penetrates the thick fog enveloping the landscape of Saluda as the warm spring-like showers wash the fog away. Most of January felt like early spring and predictions for February are a mix of below average temps and snow along with mild temps and rain…much like January.   continued…


January, Vol 128 -Looking Back > Moving Forward: With the holidays over and Saludians moving into the lull of the winter season, a tranquility and calm settles over the town. It’s a time for reflection, cleaning out the old, and making way for 2017.  continued…
