RE/MAX The Area

Welcome to our town - Florence, South Carolina. Located in the northeastern part of the state, Florence began as a railroad community almost 113 years ago and has evolved into a major city in what is known as the “Pee Dee” region taking the name from the Pee Dee River which flows through the bottomland forests, cypress swamps, and eventually into the coastal flats where antebellum rice plantations used to line the river.

Much of the growth of Florence can be attributed to its strategic location at the intersection of two main thoroughfares, I-95 and I-20. This convenient position has made Florence a center for industry, medicine, education, retail, recreational and cultural opportunities.

Transportation is a major advantage to those people coming and going to the Florence area. Direct rail service to two regional seaports in Charleston, SC and in Wilmington, NC is available, while the Florence Regional Airport provides daily commercial connections to major southeastern and international hub airports in Atlanta and Charlotte.

When you arrive in Florence you will be impressed with the two major hospital systems, McLeod Regional Hospital and The Carolinas Hospital. Both provide cutting edge health care services and have been great assets to the people of 8 counties by offering many other ancillary services.

Florence draws regional audiences to its many entertainment and cultural opportunities. The Florence Little theatre showcases local talent with a professional touch, while The South Carolina Dance Theatre, the Florence Symphony Orchestra, and Masterworks Choir enriches the lives of many. Florence residents are proud of our local schools, Florence/Darlington Technical College, Coker College and Francis Marion University for their contribution to the arts as well as their academic programs. Families enjoy the activities and programs presented at the 10,000 seats Florence Civic Center including games of the Pee Dee Pride, an East Coast hockey team.

Florence holds special enjoyment for those outdoor enthusiasts. Many parks, tennis courts, golf courses and the Pee Dee River provide something for everyone. The southern climate allows for year round participation in sports and other outdoor activities. Last, but certainly not least, if you are a race fan, you won’t want to miss the nearby Darlington Raceway.

Even with all the amenities Florence has to offer, the residents enjoy some of the lowest property taxes in South Carolina. Add that to affordable housing and a gracious lifestyle and you may just have found Camelot. Florence offers a wonderful blend of the old south with the advantages of the new south for its 125,000 people who have chosen our community.
