Top 10 Reasons To Live in Fort Mill, SC.

I am still laughing about Charlotte ranked 9th most miserable city to live by Forbes magazine. As you may know if you read my earlier post, I disagreed with Charlotte’s ranking. Of course my opinion has a lot to do with where I came from and I actually live south of Charlotte in small town called Tega Cay, SC.

I thought about the conversations Carmen and I have had with friends in the neighborhood over the last year and why they moved to our area. All of our neighborhood friends decided to relocate to the area. So I decided to put together a list of the top ten reasons on why our neighbors and of course Carmen and I live in the Fort Mill or more specifically Tega Cay, South Carolina.

The Top Ten Reasons We Live in Fort Mill/Tega Cay, SC (not ranked in any order):

1. Moderate weather year round.
2. You’ll find miles of walking trails.
3. Centrally located – the Appalachian mountains are approx a 3 hour drive to the west and the Atlantic beaches are approx 3 to 4 hour drive to the east
4. There are several quality golfing communities.
5. There are many city parks and sports complexes including baseball, soccer, tennis, fields, YMCA facilities and Leon Springs facilities.
6. Fort Mill schools rank very high in the state and have received many national education awards.
7. The area has a small town atmosphere but located just a few miles south of a much larger city Charlotte, NC.
8. Located near or on a recreation Lake Wylie with fishing, boating, swimming, etc.
9. Friendly people.
10. A bonus last year – Property taxes were lowered for most home owners in 2007.

I could come up with many more. How about you? If you wnat more information click on the city for a link Fort Mill or Tega Cay or contact Carmen Miller.

    I would add home values are reasonable compared to our friends in the northeast or Florida.

    Aw, this was a very nice post. In thought I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and precise effort to make an excellent article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and certainly not seem to get something done.

    I know this is an old post, but I couldn’t help chiming in. Don’t take those Forbes rankings too seriously, they’re compiled by reporters looking at numbers on a spreadsheet. I’ll bet none of the authors have actually visited or lived in any of the cities they feature on their lists.

    I am a 39 yr old divorced, single parent, and am relocating from southern California. I’ve been considering south Charlotte. Curious…what areas, towns, suburbs would you suggest for someone such as myself who is looking for highly rated schools for my daughters, but also an area that is not to isolative for me?
