I have moved from Hopkinsville, KY to Clover, SC. At first, it was hard to adjust especially being a new mom and barely anyone I know here except for my darling husband. I have to say, I am a huge Gilmore Girls fan so anyone who is a fan strives to find a town such as Stars Hollow; well, Clover is my Stars Hollow. It has such an amazing feeling all throughout the seasons and a welcoming feel that will embrace you deeply! I love it here and would never want to live anywhere else!

I have lived in Clover for about a few months. This city is smaller than most. Clover is the average one in which I have lived. No, it is not a perfect city -- NOR are any others. I have learned to try and set my biases and personal preferences to the side and look at the whole. Yes it is sprawling and can take some time to get around, but I plan my day accordingly. It has growing pains ; roads, schools, housing have some catching up. The folks I have met and gotten to know are polite. If one does not care for the shopping or dining in her/his neighborhood, the next one is not far away. Entertainment is all around near Rock Hill, SC. Now, truth be told, the city could certainly be more aggressive in attracting businesses and development to the poorer sections of the city. Yes, stumbling in decision-making by city leaders has hindered some things and seemed pointless. Everyone's personal experiences and preferences color how any place is viewed. But its laid back charm suits me.
We moved to Clover in 2008. We liked that it's next to the lake and is rural. What we don't like so much is the commute times that have increased substantially in the last nine years. The area is growing very fast and it isn't as rural as it once was. Lake Wylie is doing its best to manage the growth in the community. We'd like to see more limits on the housing developments that are being built. The infrastructure, especially water and sewer, have not been upgraded to handle more homes.
