In Florence there are some great golf courses, plenty of shopping, Freedom Florence softball complex, McLeod Medical Center, many wonderful restaurants, Darlington Nascar raceway, and a hugh movie complex.

If you have time, check out the Pro Hockey team, the Pee Dee Cyclones, who play at the Florence Civic Center. Lots of fun and the game is great.

There are also many parks and Francis Marion University.  It is beautiful to walk around the campus and view the gardens. The Pee Dee Farmers Market has local grown fruits and veggies and there are also plants there. They are open Monday thru Saturday. The Visitors Center is very nice, well equipped with helpful, friendly staff and information to let you know what is going on around town.
