If you live in South Carolina already, then you know how beautiful the weather is throughout the Palmetto State. However, if you’re moving to Laurens for the first time, here’s what you need to know. The average temperature in Laurens varies throughout the year, so you get a lovely changing of the seasons but rarely dip below freezing, which means it almost never snows here. Plus, Laurens gets 221 days of sun each year, which is significantly higher than average!

One of the best things to do in Laurens is to enjoy a day in the city’s charming Public Square and explore the shops, dining, and attractions along Main Street. The Square, which was originally a center for commerce and religion in the 1700s, is today a hub for small business and social events in Laurens. Beyond its array of local restaurants and boutique shops, Main Street is also home to the historic Capitol Theater, which was built in 1926, closed in 1964 and was renovated and reopened in 2007.

    These guys are awesome. I had a very large hot tub they had to move down from a six foot high deck. They had it off within an hour and headed to the destination. Very nice and capable people.
