Come visit Undiscovered South Carolina. Feel the thundering hooves of horses; smell the homemade bread baking; sample the fresh peaches or strawberries; view Civil War and living history; enjoy the songs of birds in our natural areas. We invite you to join us in Thoroughbred Country!
Thoroughbred Country, consisting of Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg and Barnwell Counties, is one of eleven state-appointed tourism regions in South Carolina. The program, sponsored by the Lower Savannah Council of Governments, began in 1980 to help attract visitors to this area of the state. The program is funded by the State of South Carolina through the Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism.
