What locals are saying

So goes the slogan at the city’s Parks, Recreation & Tourism Department — and if you ask the people, most of them will agree. Rock Hill, South Carolina offers a unique combination of Northern-style modernity with Southern politeness and hospitality. A tour through the city will reveal grassy suburban parks and the smell of Deep South pulled pork on the grill (locals note South Carolina is “all about barbecue” and shouldn’t be confused with the gumbos or stews of Georgia or Louisiana.) The small-town suburb sits just 25 miles across the state line from Charlotte, N.C. (locals there note Charlotte is “all about Nascar and B of A debit card fees and should not be confused with quiet sports or corporate altruism") and is situated in York County, a part of the Olde English District.

Although Rock Hill has had some serious problems in recent years with violent crime, it's working hard not to make its slogan become "Break Rocks (Then Back To Your Cell)"! Anyone considering a move to Rock Hill should certainly be aware of the city's hardscrabble résumé; South Carolina was ranked second highest state for violent crime in 2011, however, there are still plenty of spots in Rock Hill that offer great places to live – where the only hard scrabble is K Z M Q E L Y in your rack
