Explore Downtown

Welcome to Downtown Travelers Rest! At first glance, you will see a charming southern town with its roots deeply planted in the welcoming spirit of the south. But take a second look and you’ll find a vibrant community of small business owners whose stores, galleries and restaurants represent the true heart of what it means to be living in the south: hard work, fine craftsmanship, and pride in representing our unique state. Still quaint by most standards, Travelers Rest boasts plenty of fine art, award-winning chefs and some of the best shopping experiences where you can support independent stores. Take a moment to explore our town and see why we say, It Starts with TR!
