Memorial stadium, better known as Death Valley, is a great place to watch a football game. It seats 82,000. It has good sight lines and plenty of concession stands. Be prepared to walk, parking is tough, but no worse than most big college stadiums. It could use more restrooms, there are only four medium sized ones on each side of the stadium.

My family thoroughly enjoys going to the Easley Library. There is no need to go to Greenville because the Pickens County Library System can help you in all aspects. I get help when I need it or I can get some coffee and enjoy relaxing in an easy chair while getting a head start on my book selections or catching up on the local news. We love the Easley Library!!!

The South Carolina Botanical Garden is a diverse 295 acres of natural landscapes, display gardens, and miles of streams and nature trails. The SCBG is an official American Hosta Society Display Garden. It has a butterfly garden, a wildflower meadow, many specialty gardens, and a 70-acre arboretum. The Gift Shop and Visitor's Center are open from 10:00 - 5:00 seven days a week (excluding University holidays).
Yes they have flowers in abundance but so much more. There is a Cactus or desert garden that is truly amazing. The trail wanders through Prairie grass, carnivorous plants and much more. Really informative signs and informationals. Definitely worth the visit. We will be back for more. There is a gift shop and visitors center at the top of the parking lot. Cheers!!! FYI, it is free.

The Duke World of Energy has been around for decades but still well kept and the staff is helpful in sharing information about the production of nuclear energy and the efforts to protect the environment and the citizens of the area.

Several new buildings have been added, including the building over the main petroglyphs on the site with the light show to bring them out. The 3rd Saturday of each month brings special programs to the Mill as well as demonstrators of several skills from the past. My favorites: the potter, the quilters and weavers and the moonshine still! There is also a nice trail to enjoy and picnic space.

I know the title sounds negative, but over the years we've been to lots of old houses in many different locations. The Calhoun house is located on the Clemson University campus and it is a self guided tour. Parking can be difficult, depending on when you go there. There are a few spots supposedly for visitors, but good luck with that. Go on a Saturday or Sunday, but no Saturdays on home game days. The house is very well preserved and the furniture is correct to the period. Plaques to read while you look at the rooms. There is an outbuilding where John C Calhoun worked and where he did much of his writing. But you can't get in there, only look through the glass. A drawback would be the $5.00 donation (each) that we were asked for by the person sitting near the entrance. Interesting piece of local history.

Ashtabula Plantation is the answer to a trivia question. Who set the world's record for rice production? In 1845, Ashtabula produced a record 110 bushels per acre with each bushel weighing 43.75 pounds. During this period, the average production in South Carolina was about 40 bushels per acre. Now you know. But Ashtabula is known for other things. Located at 2725 Old Greenville Highway near Pendleton, South Carolina, the plantation dates to 1790. At one time, it was operated as a tavern on the stage road from Pendleton to Pickensville and Greenville. In 1828, Lewis Ladson Gibbes of Charleston built the two-story, nearly square, frame house now known as Ashtabula. Named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972, it is considered a significant example of a Lowcountry style plantation house. It also is part of the Pendleton Historic District. Today, it is a house museum run by the Pendleton Historic Foundation and is furnished with antebellum furniture. It is open to the public Tuesday through Friday and Sunday afternoons from April to October. Architecturally, the house is four bays wide, has a hip roof, two interior chimneys and a widow's walk at the top. It has two rooms on each side of a central hallway on each floor. The ceilings are about 12 feet high. The house has piazzas on three sides, supported by square columns. The interior walls are wide, horizontal planks covered with wallpaper. A passageway connects to the original, two-story 1790s brick house, which served as the kitchen and servants' quarters. The Pendleton Historic Foundation has done a wonderful job of restoring and preserving a historic relic of the Old South.

Difficult to find but there are directions on the Web.
Turn left onto Madden Bridge Rd ( 4 mins )
Turn right onto Waldrop Stone Rd ( 1 min ) At the corner of these two roads.
It is a short hike on an easy, well maintained train. It looks very primitive when you get there. Worth the short hike about 1.5 miles round trip. Enjoy!!!

Enjoyed. A must see for adults and children. We had a very nice time. Also, the entrance is a cactus garden that I really loved. Don't pass this by even if you are interested in gems and rocks. They had Animal and plant fossils. All very interesting !!
