Get ready for big fun in a small town in Gaffney, South Carolina. This little town is known as the Peach Capital of South Carolina, a fact reinforced by its famous water tower known as the "Peachoid" (it looks like a giant peach). You'll also see many roadside peach stands selling peaches, and peach jams, spreads, and pies along the town's highways and byways. This small town of slightly more than 12,500 residents has played an outsized role in United States history, as two major U.S. Revolutionary War battles took place nearby at Kings Mountain and Cowpens.

Gaffney began when Irish immigrant Michel A. Gaffney founded a tavern and inn at "Gaffney's Cross Roads." The budding town was strategically located at a crossroads of two major routes, one connecting the North Carolina mountains to Charleston, and the other connecting Charlotte to Atlanta.

Today, you can access Gaffney by Interstate 85, and the city lies roughly equidistant from Greenville, South Carolina, and Charlotte, North Carolina. You can fly into Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport or Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

This ease of access makes Gaffney an ideal stopping spot for business travelers visiting major regional cities, including Spartanburg, South Carolina, about 20 miles away. It's also a great place to stop if you're planning to check out multiple area attractions, whether heading to Charlotte for its museums or to Carowinds theme park. Stop into Greenville, South Carolina, to check out Falls Park or head to the BMW Zentrum Museum where you can see classic BMW models and tour the manufacturing plant.

The Gaffney Outlet Marketplace is one of Gaffney's largest attractions, located within sight of Interstate 85 at exit 90. From housewares and clothing to shoes, electronics, fragrances, and accessories, you can get lost strolling and shopping the 75 outdoor outlet shops all day. The outlets are open seven days a week. If you are looking for a one-stop shop for family clothing, head over to Hamrick's across the street. End your day with a quick bite at the food court or go next door to Fatz, beloved for its specialty calabash shrimp and chicken, or across the interstate for diner fare at Pete's of Gaffney.

Drive beyond the interstate to historic downtown if you're seeking a real small-town Southern experience off the beaten path. Stop into Con Cafe II for a cup of coffee and spend some time browsing locally sourced antiques at Pieces from the Past and the Broad River Shops. Hartzog's offers quaint contemporary curios, gifts, and accessories.

Nothing is more Southern than a classic "meat and three," a home-cooked meal featuring your choice of main entree with savory sides. In the South, of course, banana pudding or peach cobbler counts as a legitimate vegetable side, so make it count while you can. The cobbler showcases Gaffney's famous peaches in all their baked glory at Harold's Restaurant.

Other local favorite eating establishments include Sunny's Donuts, Colonial Fish Camp, and GrandDaddy's BBQ. If you've never been to Waffle House, you must stop at this cult-favorite roadside restaurant for chopped and smothered hash browns or pecan waffles.

If you're seeking entertainment, try to solve a mystery at Holmes and Watson Escape rooms, or check out the latest local production at the Gaffney Little Theatre. Head to Capri Theatre to catch local and traveling music acts in historic downtown Gaffney.

Small town Gaffney will surprise you with the breadth of its offerings. From battlefields to outlet malls, and fresh peaches and down-home diners to antiquing, you'll find that Gaffney offers many satisfying and authentic Southern experiences.

When to Visit Gaffney, South Carolina

Gaffney's Southern climate makes for hot, humid summers, and cold, wet winters. If you plan on visiting the battlefields, consider late August through early October. Given the warm temperatures, the leaves don't start to change colors until October, but the wait is worth it. A visit to the Kings Mountain National Military Park is better when you're surrounded by gorgeous autumn leaves.

The 330-mile trail took frontier militiamen across Appalachia in 1780 to meet the South Carolina Patriots, and today, the trail takes you through historic downtown Gaffney to Kings Mountain National Military Park. The Patriots decisively beat the Loyalists at Kings Mountain, ultimately turning the tide of the American Revolutionary War.
