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.

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.
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.
