York County: Looking for something to do in historic York? Check out new site!

Stop by the new website “Visit Historic York, SC” — it’s sponsored by the York Downtown Business Association. The site is very well done, and it contains links to York’s local businesses, restaurants, theaters, parks, festivals, etc. etc.

Be sure to let them know if there are more things you’d like to see. I know I’d love a slideshow, with more photos of our awesome city! How about links to Parks & Rec, plus info about school events (high-school concerts, fish fries, football games…)
