Pee Dee’s Florence County is brimming with unique dining experiences, top family-friendly attractions, exclusive outdoor activities, premier lodging options, and some of the area’s best shopping spots.

Grab a paddle or bring a healthy appetite to blaze Florence’s two one-of-a-kind trails: the SC Revolutionary Rivers Trail—a National Water Trail—and the SC Pecan Trail.

The SC Revolutionary Rivers paddling trail spans nearly 70 miles of the very swamplands used by the Patriots, including General Francis Marion, during the American Revolutionary War. And the SC Pecan Trail winds visitors along a path featuring more than 20 local shops and restaurants that serve up a delicious array of South Carolina pecan treats and dishes.

Other popular things to do in Florence include: 

  • visiting the county’s art and history museums
  • perusing the homegrown and homemade goods at the Pee Dee State Farmers Market
  • burning energy at the air sports arena, escape rooms, and full entertainment studio
  • catching stellar performances at the county’s theaters
  • enjoying fresh-air fun at the county’s parks, state park, and the one and only botanical garden

Explore the countless options below and add some Florence County fun to your Pee Dee trip itinerary.
