Life In The Prettiest Town in Dixie

A game of golf at Cheraw State Park. Strolling down the tree-lined sidewalks on Third Street. Cheering on your favorite ball player at Arrowhead Park. Life in Cheraw is quiet, comfortable, and beautiful. Good people making the best of their resources. Nothing elaborate; just simply celebrating life. Cheraw is rich with gardens, parks and the architectural heritage of three centuries. Shop, golf, or enjoy the outdoor adventures the area has to offer. A strong economic base blends this beautiful legacy with the best of the present, making Cheraw a wonderful place to live. Come see us. We'll be delighted if you decide to stay!
