Today our journey takes us to beautiful Florence, South Carolina. Upon arrival, we will make our first stop at the Florence CVB where our step-on guide will meet us and lead the way to Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden. Since the early 1980s, Pearl Fryar has created fantastic topiary at his garden in Bishopville, South Carolina. Living sculptures, Pearl’s topiary are astounding feats of artistry and horticulture. We will have lunch at Harry and Harry Too’s, home of the Lizard Man sandwich. Roadsideamerica.com says The Harry and Harry Too restaurant takes most of its interior decor cues from pop culture: The Three Stooges, Elvis, Tomb Raider, etc. What sets it apart is its colorful hand-made outdoor sign promoting its connection to a local monster: the terrifying, car-chomping Lizard Man. Maybe he’ll meet us there! After lunch we will visit the Swamp Log Artisan Gallery, where we will watch a short video on the rescue of the sunken cypress, then shop around the gallery. Topping off the day we make a stop at Young Pecan Plantation where you can sample and purchase a wide variety of pecans, candies and grab some souvenirs. What a great time to shop for Christmas gifts! After dinner at Lizard’s Thicket, we will depart for home.
