Variety of small shops to explore
Spindale & Forest City (Only a 5 or 10 minute drive from downtown Rutherfordton), both of these small towns offer a variety of unique shops to spend a day looking for that special antique or a one of a kind gift.
Forest City has most of all the fast food chains. It also has a Chili's and a Fatz Cafe. There are a number of large grocery stores, along with a Walmart, for all the supplies you may need.
There is so much to enjoy in the western North Carolina mountains. Below is a list of the outdoor activities and restaurants in Rutherfordton. You can also visit the Chamber of Commerce in Downtown Rutherfordton for additional ideas.
