Luxury & Convenience

An easy drive, with light traffic and plenty of scenery, head in any direction, and you’re within driving distance of some of South Carolina’s most popular shopping centers and tourist attractions. Whether it’s Carolina football, Charleston cuisine or the waters of Myrtle Beach, Williamsburg County is at the center of it all. Not to mention, we’re just 15 miles from Artsfield.

Winding through Williamsburg County is the Black River, a state-designated Scenic River that offers ample recreational opportunities to take in everything someone looking for the majesty of the outdoors needs.

Farmers Markets

It’s a Matter of Taste!

Locally grown fruits and vegetables are more delicious and healthy than those that traveled many miles to reach us here in Williamsburg County and buying them helps to support the local farmers and producers! 

To get locally grown fresh, healthy, tasty vegetables and fruits, visit one of the four local community-based Farmers Markets in Williamsburg County! You can find fresh fruits, vegetables, and some unusual personally made items like lye soap, jewelry, etc. as well as getting to meet and talk with the farmers at the markets.
