Rock Hill is the fifth largest city in South Carolina and the largest in York County. Located just southwest of Charlotte, it’s a popular location for families. Nearly 1/3 of households have children under the age of 18 according to the last census report.
With a small-town feel and quick access to Charlotte’s city center (20 miles), Rock Hill is home to numerous businesses and institutions, including the acclaimed Winthrop University, whose campus makes up one of Rock Hill’s five historic districts. The surrounding area of York County is home to Carowinds, an amusement park so large that it extends over two states.
For history buffs, Rock Hill was pivotal in the American Civil War. It was a major transfer point for Confederate soldiers and supplies to and from the warfront. Rock Hill wasn’t officially incorporated until 1870, which was actually the third try to incorporate the city.
You can find activities and festivals in and around Rock Hill almost any time of year, including Summerfest & “Experience SC Festival” in late Summer; Blues & Jazz Festival and the Underexposed Film Festival in the Fall; Christmasville holiday village in December; and St. Patrick's Day on Main in March and the "Come See Me" Festival, a 10-day annual celebration of Spring, in April.
Rock Hill is a perfect mix of southern charm, hospitality and history.
