Overnighting in Florence provides a relaxing stay with the option for taking day trips to popular tourist sites. Florence is located an hour from Myrtle Beach and two hours from Charleston, SC

Darlington Raceway, the site of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Bojangles' Southern 500, on Labor Day weekend is just a few miles down the road. Even if you're here during non-race time, the track "Too Tough to Tame" has a Stock Car Museum that's perfect for race fans. 

Bishopville is just a half hour west of Florence on I-20, and one of our favorite people greet visitors with enthusiasm and maybe a bit of eccentricity!

Pearl Fryar has a topiary garden at his home that is amazing. He's been featured on HGTV, Martha Stewart, and the Oprah network for his unusual living artwork.

The SC Button Museum honors Dalton Stevens, the Button King. He held the Guinness World Record for the largest private collection of buttons, and he managed to cover cars, musical instruments, and even coffins in buttons. He appeared on Johnny Carson, David Letterman, and many more late night TV shows.
