Lee County reflects the impact that “King Cotton” has had on this area for over two centuries. The South Carolina Cotton Trail™ begins in Bishopville at the South Carolina Cotton Museum and winds its way through Pee Dee Country past fields of snow white cotton bolls in the Fall. In October, the county celebrates the cotton harvest with an annual Cotton Festival. Historic architecture and unique gardens reflect the grandeur of cotton’s glory days. From artesian wells, Arabian horses and alpacas to an extraordinary topiary garden, the county has a variety of appealing places to visit. Lee County is also home to several parks and the Lee State Natural Area with 2,800 acres of pristine wetlands for outdoor activities.
