The area is beautiful and clean. The price of living is relatively cheap and gas prices are low! There is a lot of construction, so traffic is bad, but it is because Fort Mill is a growing area.
Review Tega Cay
There are many local business, restaurants, and shopping centers which provide employment in our local town. Also, we are approximately 20 minutes from the big city, Charlotte. Charlotte is home to many hospitals, businesses, malls, and high end care dealerships. All through high school I had a job at a local grocery store, and through college I have worked at MasterMedia Communications and also as a tutor. If you go our looking for a job you are bound to find something, there are endless job opportunities.
For any and all types of food cravings you may have there is bound to be restaurant that will satisfy it. One of my favorite restaurants in Fuji, it is a japenese steakhouse about 10 minutes from my house. They cook in front of you, and do tricks and pranks to the customers by tossing vegetables in their mouth and building onion volcanoes. Also, about five minutes from where I live is a new restaurant called City Tavern. They have endless options on their menu, but I would have to say the spinach garlic sauce tortellini is to dye for. It is fresh and within one bite you are hooked.
