“Rock Hill is nestled in the middle of stunning natural vistas and parks.”
Despite being part of the Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia Metropolitan Statistical Area with its 2.6 million people, Rock Hill remains nestled in the middle of some of the most stunning natural vistas and parks the country has to offer.
From the scenic hiking in Kings Mountain State Park to the beautiful and diverse flower blooms of Glencairn Garden, Rock Hill and the surrounding York County offer plenty of natural beauty and picturesque parks and picnic areas.
If the spectrum of natural wonders right outside your doorstep isn’t your particular cup of tea, then the cultural and athletic amenities offered by the area should be enough to quell anyone’s thirst for fun and entertainment.
Rock Hill is home to a wide array of world-class sports facilities, from the Giordana Velodrome, a 250m world-class cycling track, to the Novant Health BMX Supercross Track, a state-of-the-art motocross race track, which will be hosting the 2017 UCI BMX World Championship.
The Carowinds amusement park in surrounding York County is so large, it stretches across state lines, covering parts of both North and South Carolina.
The annual Patchwork Tales Storytelling Festival, hosted by the York County Library, features storytellers, artists and musicians from around the globe.
Winthrop University is one of the main institutional establishments in the city, with more than 6,000 students. The main campus has gone through extensive development over the past 10 years, helping to solidify its place as South Carolina’s top-rated university and be listed 21 consecutive times in U.S. News & World Report.
Known as “Football City USA,” Rock Hill cranks out a mind-boggling high ratio of one NFL player for every 8,512 people in the town, according to Sporting News. Unlike the multi-million dollar high school stadiums in Texas, future NFL superstars prove their mettle at District Three Stadium, an 8,738-seat building that’s hosted some of the biggest names in football as they were rising through the ranks.
As noted by longtime local radio broadcaster Gene Knight, “You can spend six dollars and see these kids every Friday, or you can wait a few years and spend $600.”
From star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and cornerback Stephon Gilmore, Rock City has produced – and continues to produce – a who’s who of football sensations.

Winthrop University students especially are never short on a need for additional space.
