Lake Wylie South has enchanted its new residents with its natural beauty, close proximity to Charlotte, lower taxes and good schools. Originally home to the Catawba Indians, the area flourished with farming and trading. In nearby Rock Hill, The Catawba Cultural Preservation Project on the Catawba Indian Reservation strives to preserve, protect, promote, and maintain the rich cultural heritage of the Catawba Indian Nation. Nearby Glencairn Garden is also a central focus of Rock Hill's annual spring festival called "Come-See-Me."
Within just 20 minutes south of Charlotte, N.C., a wide range of activities are available in nearby Charlotte, including area sports of the NFL's Carolina Panthers, the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats and NCAA college athletics. One can catch NASCAR action at Lowe's Motor Speedway, AAA baseball or a Charlotte Checkers hockey game. Recreational options include hiking in nearby Crowders Mountain State Park or South Mountains State Park, or a day trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Western North Carolina. The Carowinds Amusement Park, Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, the Uptown Charlotte Arena and Cricket Arena offer great entertainment options for residents.
When residents venture away from the lake's serenity, the culture and amenities of nearby Charlotte are a short drive away. Navigating through Center City Charlotte is easy due in part to a grid pattern of city blocks. The Charlotte Area Transportation System (CATS) operates a citywide bus service; a Center City motorized trolley line, the Gold Rush and the Historic Charlotte Trolley.
Whether it's the diverse cultural and recreational opportunities, the friendly people or beautiful lake community, South Lake Wylie South in York County provides an easygoing lifestyle steeped in Southern hospitality.
