Saluda Profile


Overview

Saluda is a tiny city located in the state of North Carolina. With a population of 707 people and just one neighborhood, Saluda is the 440th largest community in North Carolina. Saluda has a large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic cities in the country.

Saluda real estate is some of the most expensive in North Carolina, although Saluda house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Saluda is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Saluda is a city of sales and office workers, professionals, and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Saluda who work in sales jobs (23.21%), management occupations (13.39%), and food service (12.50%).

Of important note, Saluda is also a city of artists. Saluda has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Saluda’s character.


Setting & Lifestyle

Another notable thing is that Saluda is an extremely popular vacation destination. A significant portion of the population is seasonal. During the vacation season, the city experiences a large influx of people who take up residence in second homes they own in the area. As the vacation season ends, the population drops again, leaving behind a substantially quieter and smaller city.

The overall crime rate in Saluda is one of the lowest in the US. This makes it one of the safer places to live in the country in terms of crime.

It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Saluda has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Saluda has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Saluda than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Saluda may be for you.

As is often the case in a small city, Saluda doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

The citizens of Saluda are among the most well-educated in the nation: 42.54% of adults in Saluda have a bachelor's degree or even advanced degree, whereas the average US city has 21.84% holding at least a bachelor's degree.
