About Florence

We invite you to enjoy our mild winters and proximity to the beach!

Located at the intersection of I-95 and I-20, Florence is an attractive place to live for many reasons. This mid-sized southern city is large enough to boost a performing arts center, museums, festivals, a world-class recreation complex, and award winning hospital systems. Still, the city is small enough to preserve the small-town feeling with a number of tree-lined streets and parks, all which add to the pleasant lifestyle the citizens enjoy.

Florence is a major hub, both for industry and infrastructure, while establishing itself as a regional center for business, medicine, culture, and finance. Florence is home to two award winning hospital systems, McLeord Regional Medical Center and Carolinas Hospital System. Both hospital systems have achieved numerous accreditations and accolades.

Downtown Florence is currently undergoing a massive revitalization. With the opening of the FLorence County museum and the Francis Marion Performing Arts Center, downtown Florence has exloded. Several new restaurants and businesses have opened and many continue to flock to the downtown district.
