“I retired to Florida but still try to come up to Travelers Rest three or four times a year. If you’re looking for a nice, quiet, restful weekend or vacation, if you need a place to relax, it’s the place to go. There’s something magical about the whole area no matter what time of year. I’m a member of the Bird-in-Hand VIP program, which is great because after nine nights, you get $50 off the next night. That’s another incentive to come back.”

— Joe Mulé, The Villages, FL
