3 of the 12 Best Places to Live in South Carolina Are in York County!

Strategistico, an online platform for strategic insights on living and in-depth guides for travel, recently ranked the 12 best places to live in South Carolina. They used criteria such as cost of living, job prospects, desirability, crime rates, commute time, and things to do. Oh, and as they pointed out and we thought you’d find this interesting, South Carolina has seen an increase in population in 2020 of 1.19 percent, making us the 6th fastest growing State in America!

The Linda Hall Team is going to share the local communities that made the list –

 

#9 on the list was Linda Hall’s community of Fort Mill. Here’s what Strategistico had to share about it.

Pros and Cons:
+
 Charming downtown
Excellent school system
+ Low crime
– Traffic and commute to Charlotte

Location: Check on Google Maps

Fort Mill is another small suburb of Charlotte that sits right at the northern border with North Carolina. It is surrounded by nature and offers tons of hiking and biking trails nearby. There are numerous parks around the city as well.

Fort Mill also features a cute downtown area with many locally-owned shops, bars, and restaurants lining its historic Main Street.

To top it all off, there is a strong focus on education and Fort Mill’s school system has been consistently rated as one of the best in the state, earning an A+ rating from Areavibes. Meanwhile, its crime is also low – 52% below the national average.

The charming city of Rock Hill is home to ***76,818 (updated 2022 via worldpopulationreview.com) residents and is the 5th largest city in South Carolina. It is close to Charlotte, sitting at the border between North and South Carolina. Rock Hill is near the smaller towns on our list of Tega Cay and Fort Mill, but is quite a bit larger and thus offers more opportunities for its residents.

For example, the city has a rich history and is filled with museums and art centers. Rock Hill is also home to Winthrop University, which helps add to the cultural vibes of the city.

Meanwhile, there are tons of parks and public plazas in and around Rock Hill that make it an outdoor lover’s dream. If you combine that with the strong sense of community that has been cultivated here, it is easy to see why Rock Hill is one of the best places to live in South Carolina.

Get lost in Rock Hill's first escape room at Escape Eight. This exciting adventure will test your problem-solving skills as you try to solve puzzles and riddles while locked inside an escape room!

 

If you have children, they will love visiting the Main Street Children's Museum in Rock Hill, or they may want to go fishing on the banks of Lake Wylie at Ebenezer Park.

 

There are plenty of historical sites nearby if you enjoy history, such as Fort Mill History Museum & Battle Reenactments and hiking at Kings National Military Park. You'll learn about historical places and people during your self-guided tour.

Go on a hike, take a bike ride or listen to some music any Thursday from May through June at Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill.

 

If you are looking to escape the heat, you might want to try these suggestions. First, rent a stand-up paddleboard at The Goat Boater and spend some time out on the water. Reservations are required. How about boating and fishing? Lake Wylie is a go-to destination for fisher enthusiasts as it provides 13,443 acres with 325 miles of shoreline. Lake Wylie is home to some of the best fishing across the southeast.

Golfing is another favorite pastime in York County. Several golf courses offer both 18-hole courses and miniature golf courses if you're looking for something different than just another round at your local course.
