I love that the houses in the neighborhoods are uniquely designed, and there are few "cookie-cutter" neighborhoods, where all of the houses look the same. I love having more space between different houses so that my family and I have some privacy. The people are incredibly welcoming, friendly, and willing to help out in any situation.

Tega Cay is a wonderful area. Lots of people choose the area for the school district, which is highly ranked. The people are friendly and the golf course and walking trails are nice for leisure activity. Traffic in the surrounding area can be pretty bad because of how fast the area is developing, but there is a lot to do.
Tega Cay is a growing suburb, definitely. It has its ups and downs, being a busy area in terms of traffic as well as a lack of diversity. The area is made up of mostly white, middle-class families. On a positive note, it is full of great public schools and is generally safe and good for families. It is in a good location for work as it is close to the rest of Fort Mill as well as the Charlotte area.
