Live Here


York County, SC is home to some of the nation’s fastest growing communities, offering big-city amenities in a warm, friendly environment known for its hospitality and outdoor adventure.  With great places to live, work and raise a family, the choices are many.

Relax and enjoy. The Catawba River and the inviting waters of Lake Wylie provide paddling, boating, floating and fishing adventures. With over 2,100 acres, the Anne Springs Close Greenway is one of the region’s largest nature preserves with abundant places to picnic, hike and mountain bike.

Want to compete? Bikers can participate in nationally sanctioned races at the Rock Hill Velodrome and BMX Supercross Track at Riverwalk, part of a
robust amateur sports scene in Rock Hill, anchored by Cherry Park and the downtown Indoor Sports and Events Center. And if a day on the greens is your sport of choice, York County’s mild weather makes year round golfing accessible, offering numerous challenging courses across the county.

While nearby Charlotte offers professional sports – including the NBA’s Hornets and the NFL’s Carolina Panthers and soon to be Major League Soccer – York County’s proximity to both the beach and the mountains can make a quick day trip a new adventure.

Families enjoy the best in public education, as York County’s four public school districts consistently rank as some of the most highly respected elementary, middle and high schools in the state and the Charlotte region. So whether it’s great food and beverage, outstanding outdoor recreation
and education, or ease of access in connecting with nature, we have it all right here.

Add this to a well-trained workforce, excellent healthcare, quick access to Charlotte and its international airport and you will see why York County is – The Location You Need. The Life You Want.
