Walhalla, South Carolina is a charming mountain town with a gorgeous backdrop of the southern Appalachian Mountains. If you’re ever lucky enough to find yourself here and need suggestions on things to do, we’ve got you covered.
Before you hit the town, take some time to visit our friends at Visit Oconee. They can give you recommendations for where to shop, eat, play, and stay in the area, so stop in and tell them hello!
Once you’re in town, you may be on the search for your next favorite restaurant. We can’t pick just one, so here’s a few that we love:
Walhalla is a place that’s surrounded by natural beauty that’s also easily accessible for a day tripper. Issaqueena Falls, Yellow Branch Falls, and Station Cove Falls are all beautiful waterfalls right up Hwy 28 from downtown Walhalla that require only a short hike! For the extra adventurous, all of these falls can be visited in one day. If you’re visiting Issaqueena, be sure to take a few minutes to go see Stumphouse Tunnel as well. This unfinished train tunnel is a unique place where you can get some killer photos.
Ready for a glass of wine after seeing some waterfalls? Partners in Wine Walhalla is a wine bar that’s a perfect place to relax with your traveling company. If wine isn’t your thing, don’t worry. They have craft beer as well! West & Co. Taproom is another great option for some craft beer in a cool atmosphere.
If you’re a fan of the arts, then take some time to visit End of the Road Studios. Their art is spectacular, just be sure to call ahead if you’re visiting! If performing arts is what you enjoy, then see what acts are coming to the Walhalla Performing Arts Center. They have acts doing everything from music to comedy, and they’ve had some big names come to town like Lee Greenwood and Sister Hazel.
It’s hard to fit all of the neat things there is to do in Walhalla into one day, so if you decide to stay for a whole weekend, check out our list of accommodations to find a nearby bed and breakfast or cabin to stay in.
