Thoroughbred Country South Carolina

Feel the thundering hooves of horses; smell the homemade bread baking; sample the fresh peaches and berries; view Civil War and living history; enjoy the songs of birds in our natural areas. Thoroughbred Country - We're Way More than Horses!

Thoroughbred Country offers a myriad of dining and entertainment options as well as things to see and do and accommodations which will make the perfect complement to Atlanta, Charleston and Myrtle Beach tours. Discover our past as you scour civil war battle sites and view plantation homes that still retain all the grace and charm of yesteryear. Tour graceful Aiken and learn about its beginnings as a winter colony for wealthy northerners. Quench your thirst with water from the Healing Springs near Blackville. Paddle the Edisto River, the longest, free-flowing, blackwater river in the United States. Discover natural beauty along the area’s highways and byways or in an elegant garden. Stroll downtown districts and off the beaten path shops for world-renown artwork, locally thrown pottery, handmade crafts and other one-of-a kind treasures.
