Newberry: The City of Friendly Folks

« Explore the Jewel

Visiting Newberry provides a fresh break for the soul. It is a college town with a community embracing its rich history and culture. It is widely recognized for the restoration project of the circa 1882 Newberry Opera House. All year long, this community opens its doors and entertains visitors from all over the world. The entertainment line up gets better with each year! After the entertainment, there are plenty of quaint gift shops, historic homes and ample antique selections to fill the day.

If you are an avid flower fan, be sure to stop by the Carter and Holmes Orchid Greenhouse. This family operation is the largest indoor orchid nursery open to the public east of the Mississippi. With 18 greenhouses, you are sure to find the perfect souvenir.

Appropriately, Newberry was named one of the Top 100 Best Small Towns in America.
