Located near the memorial park marking the site of one of the largest Civil War battles, the town of Gettysburg sits in a landscape of rolling green hills with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance.

Florence is a city in Florence County, South Carolina, United States, and it is probably best known for the intersection of I-95 and I-20, and the eastern terminus of I-20.

There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Florence National Cemetery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Florence Baptist Temple, get a taste of the local shopping with Pee Dee State Farmers Market, and pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Palmetto Peddlers Antiques Mall.
