In the 1800s, most folks made their way to this small southern town first on one of the three railroads that converged here. Today, guests of our Florence hotels most likely arrived by car via I-95 or I-20, the two major intersecting interstate highways that have made the area an industrial hub.
After the day’s business is done, Florence hotel guests can cheer on the Pee Dee Cyclones, the city’s professional hockey team, or catch a Patriot game at Francis Marion University. Hungry sports fans who prefer to watch their sports from a bar stool can enjoy hot food, cold beer and camaraderie at the Pub of Florence, The Edge Bar and Grill, or The Swamp Sports Bar and Grill (voted best bar in the Pee Dee).
Golfers staying in our Florence accommodations will be pleased to find an array of courses nearby, and shoppers will love hunting for their next treasure at the Palmetto Peddlers Antiques Mall. If your antiquing efforts score you a Civil War item, then tour the War Between the States Museum to learn more about it and this epic conflict.
Whether its business or pleasure that brings you here, you’ll never forget the charming southern town of Florence.
