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 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!
Nicknamed Football City USA, Rock Hill SC, the fifth largest city in the state, is considered to be the prime spot for football players to make it to the NFL. It is also one of the fastest growing cities in the state, with historic downtown building brand new apartments as we speak. Rock Hill has a multitude of things to do, whether it is bowling with your friends, going to beautiful Winthrop University and enjoying the lakes, eating some good home cookin', or rather simply enjoying the beauty the town has to offer. If this sounds like a good time to you, join me, and let's Rock the Hill together!
