You’ll see it for miles. I was an iconic landmark in House Of Cards. Frank Underwood got his start as a Congressman from the district where the Peachoid is. “President Frank Underwood “ is “buried” in Gaffney’s nearby Oakland Cemetary.

Cherokee County History & Arts Museum

Reviewed By elite99999 - Forest City, United States

Several reviews said this was a small museum but we were pleasantly surprised. For a small town, this is a nice museum. Lots of history and well done decent sized displays. We were told they are planning expansions as well. Well worth the $5 admission in my opinion.

The Big E

Reviewed By Sburris65 - Simpsonville, United States

The big E in Gaffney serves as a halfway point for my dad and I and we get together when ever the newest horror movie or other movies we both want to see are released. And the Big E is a great place to catch a movie or make a whole day of family fun. This place has everything to keep the whole family entertained for hours no matter what the weather outside is. Inside there is a bowling ally, slides, bumper cars, and arcade games. On the outside there is mini golf and a rope course. And of course what I am always here for..the movies. There are about half a dozen theaters. The seating here is stadium seating giving you a great view no matter where you are. Chairs are big and comfy and one thing I really like is..they keep the temperature at a comfortable level. In most movies I end up freezing no matter what the weather is outside. My dad and I enjoy the movies here and have never had any issues here. I can't really speak for the games offered here since I really am not into those things. But my brother and his family come here for the movies for that reason. So they can enjoy some games before the movies start. And I am going to really put an effort to come out here and meet one of my friends for a girls day out and have movies and mini golf. Because the golf and the rope course look fun! But when I am here I always see people enjoying the other activities here. Also they do a great job of keeping this place clean. I never see a sea of popcorn strewn about from the concession to the theater. Movie prices are generally cheaper than else where around. And on Monday they are $5 all day long! We normally go on Monday during the day and it isnt crowded at all. But we had to go on a Saturday during the day for Joker and it was packed. They are very accesible for everyone. Bathrooms are also always nice and clean. They have plenty of parking. They do run kids movies during the day in the summer. They do host birthday parties here and they do have event space. And another great thing about them is the location. They are located behind the outlet mall. So there is plenty of shopping there. And if you are looking for more than popcorn before or after the movies..there are places at the outlet mall to nosh. There are also some sit down restaurants including Cracker Barrel. There is a rug and home outlet on the corner that has some beautiful things for your home. And right across the road is Hamricks (a large chain of clothing stores) which always has some amazing deals. Go on down that road and you will see an old school house where you can stop and take pictures and then there is the big Peachoid and Fatz right beside of it (I have seperate reviews on both). This is at exit 90 in Gaffney and the next exit down at exit 92 also has loads of dining options. They are about 30 minutes from Spartanburg. So for some one stop family fun..stop in at the Big E in Gaffney.
