The Enduring Farmlands Scenic Byway showcases routes through the historic towns of Hawkinsville, Pineview, Rochelle, and Abbeville, as well as the surrounding countryside. In viewing the peaceful rural character and pastoral landscapes of this 65-mile byway in Pulaski and Wilcox Counties, travelers can observe the small town agricultural heritage still prevalent in this region of the state, and appreciate the efforts these cities and counties have made to maintain the character of their rural lifestyle while allowing a viable future for their residents.

Attractions of the byway include scenic pecan groves, horse and cattle pasture lands and farmland (corn, cotton, peanuts, soybeans, peaches, blueberries, and grapes), farmers markets and festivals, civil war heritage sites, and the Ocmulgee River, along with the historic architecture of Hawkinsville's Old Opera House, the Lawrence Bennett Harness Horse racetrack, and several notable churches.
