Named for the original Native America Pee Dee Indians who used to call the area home, the Pee Dee region offers visitors wonderful parks and other natural areas. History is also a big draw for the area, as its history runs the gamut from the Revolutionary to the Civil Wars. Plus, everything from cotton to tobacco - both major cash crops of the Pee Dee - are reflected in the region's offerings. For golfers, there are a number of courses to choose from, while outdoorsmen have lakes and parks to enjoy. Come and spend some time in one of South Carolina's true gems and walk away with a little more knowledge about a region.
This 835-acre park features Lake Norton, which is a perfect spot for fishing, boating and canoeing. A nature trail is also available for those looking to explore this tranquil stay for the night at the area's campground.
Beginning at Bishopville's South Carolina Cotton Museum and running through the Pee Dee Country, this trail gives you a better understanding of the role cotton has played in this region. In October every year, the Pee Dee's Lee County celebrates the harvest with the annual Cotton Festival.
It's not just old cars one can see when they venture to this museum. There are plenty of modern ones as well. Mixing classic and modern, this museum pays tribute to the great sport of stock car racing and the fans who love it.
