USA, South Carolina – Wandering in Small-Town Carolina

Published: 2.10.2020
Today we will visit South Carolina again, this time we have selected some of the most interesting towns for you.

Hartsville is our first destination. It is actually the largest city in Darlington County and the locals consider it (rightly) a hidden treasure. The founding of the city is attributed to the original inhabitants of North America, but when settlers from Europe came here, the diseases they brought here were exterminated by the Indians, and so the descendants of Europeans have lived on the site ever since. 

Jižní Karolína

The city is attractive mainly because of its historical charm, the most popular form of accommodation is a classic bed-and-breakfast. The city is also known for its Kalmia Gardens, which is 14 hectares covered with all kinds of flowers. What's more, admission to the garden is completely free.


Museums and galleries in Hartsville focus primarily on Southern art and history. And if you want to take a valuable souvenir from there, you will definitely choose something in the local antique shops.

But let's leave Hartsville and look further. Specifically to York, located in the northwestern tip of South Carolina. York was founded in the 1850s by English settlers, and it was in this city that two battles took place during the American War of Independence. Most of the city center has retained its historic character and consists of about 180 buildings. Pay attention to the historic clock tower. You will also find many museums and venues for various historical events. Delicious cider is also made here and don't miss the great apple pies.

Jižní Karolína

McClellanville is another southern town with a focus on fishing. Only about a thousand inhabitants live here, but it is still worth a visit. The main income of the locals is fishing, you can really enjoy the fish here and in the local restaurants you will always have a rich selection of fresh fish. You can also go fishing and catch dinner yourself.


If you prefer to stay ashore, head to Cape Romain, where the lighthouse is located. However, tours take place only once a quarter, so you may be lucky. If not, then you can walk around the docks in McClellanville and visit the Village Museum, where you can book a guided tour to introduce you to history.
