Florence, South Carolina, is a charming Southern town that offers unique shopping, antebellum heritage, and a stunning natural backdrop. Travelers wanting to explore the great outdoors have multiple options, including Timrod Park, which has interpretive trails, and the 100-acre Freedom Florence Recreation Complex, which provides walking trails and a lake.

Civil War buffs will also find a lot to do here, as the city was a major rail center for moving men and supplies at the time. Visitors can learn about life during the 1860s at the War Between the States Museum and pay tribute to fallen soldiers at Florence National Cemetery.


Flights to Florence land at Florence Regional Airport, which has served the public for more than 75 years.
