Rock Hill Reviews

My family moved to Rock Hill in 2007, when I was 10 years old. I completed 5th grade, middle school, high school, and freshman year of college here so I have been able to experience all 4 levels of education. In my opinion the education curriculum, faculty and staff are all fantastic. Rock Hill is a big sports-oriented town. We are known as Football Town USA due to the large number of players who have been recruited to college teams and the NFL from the area (think Mason Rudolph). Rock Hill is very close to Charlotte, and everything a big city has to offer-but still retains that small town atmosphere. Very family friendly!

Rock Hill has beautiful surroundings, quiet neighborhoods, good shopping, and a variety of restaurants! It's a short drive from rivers, lakes, and the mountains; it's a twenty minute drive to Charlotte. Rock Hill has a quaint, small town feel with access to the big city advantages. It is a family friendly town.
Rock Hill is a great place to live. Its location is convenient to Charlotte, North Carolina and Columbia, South Carolina. But aside from its location, the growing city with the small town feel allows residents to thrive in an encouraging, friendly environment. The city listens to its citizens and is dramatically looking to receive feedback and improve and grow the various areas in the city. The major festivals, Come See Me and Christmasville, allow for citizens to interact and explore parts of the city they normally wouldn't. Each festival has experiences and activities for children, families, adults, and young adults. I am proud to be from Rock Hill, South Carolina and highly recommend it to anyone who asks!
