South Carolina’s Thoroughbred Country – We’re Way More than Horses!

 

Thoroughbred Country, South Carolina
Thoroughbred Country, South Carolina
Four beautiful counties in western South Carolina where yesterday is preserved for today. History from every American era is evident throughout this region known as Thoroughbred Country. Come explore Civil War battle sites and historic plantation homes. Visit our quaint towns where you will find museums rich with history and festivals that display local culture. Learn about pre-Clovis and nuclear times. Walk in the steps of the famous Winter Colonists. Churches of the past, equestrian events and stories of the Charleston to Hamburg rail line can also be found. 

 

While history abounds, Thoroughbred Country is also a place of natural beauty. Notice the Spanish moss gracing enormous oak trees. Take in the local flora and fauna at a sanctuary. Ponder over the unusual elliptical phenomenon known as a Carolina Bay. Hike through an urban forest or let the elegance of a local garden carry you to another time. If you desire more active recreation, then paddle the longest free-flowing, Blackwater River in the world.

 

Cool off with a drink from the Healing Springs, whose waters are believed to have curative powers. Shop for antiques and uniques, such as locally-thrown pottery. Browse art galleries. Take a break from your adventures and enjoy our cuisine. Roadside stands, cozy cafes, freshly-baked Mennonite goods and full-scale dining. Of course, we still have your southern favorites such as grits, BBQ and fried chicken.

 

After a full day of experiencing our culture, history and shopping, rest your head at a quaint bed and breakfast or an award-winning hotel and spa. You’ll be sure to return for another stay after visiting Thoroughbred Country, South Carolina.
