We're currently considering buying a home in this area, but don't know much about it yet. Schools are not a concern, but how is crime? development? Shopping? How long will it take me to get to a Walmart or Target? A mall? Traffic (work will be on W. Arrowood)? Anything else I should know? Thanks!

I love the Clover area - but then, I prefer more rural, small town life

Clover is a nice community - and not too far from anything really. You can be at the WalMart in Gastonia in about 20 minutes tops. Crime is pretty low and the traffic out that way is not bad at all. Heading up to Arrowood Rd the ride will be four-laned most of the way (except closest to Clover). Gastonia has a small mall, but the larger ones in Charlotte would be about 45 minutes away. Happy house hunting!

It's the city with LOVE in the name. That's on a sign as you get into town

What is up with those boarded up windows near 321/5 corner? 2nd story , right across from the cafeteria/lawnmower place? if you want to get to Walmart, might as well drive to York. it s only 17 miles away.

Lake Wylie is not Clover. Clover is 10-15 minutes south of Lake Wylie....Home to the original Ralph Lauren Polo Outlet. Its been closed for years now. Clover is sorta "real south" and good ol'e boys town that is somewhat depressed due to textile closings. It's a real cheap place to live.

I guess we'll keep looking then. We really liked a couple of the areas in Clover with some newer construction on BIGGER lots. But we really want to be closer to shopping, etc.

I live in Clover and LOVE it!! We built in a new neighborhood off 557, just moved in last September. It's small town, and feels like the little town I grew up in, which I've dearly missed. It's the best of both worlds, city living at your finger tips with the quiet and ease of a small town community. You can get to big shopping in 20-40 minutes depending on what you're looking for. There's a new Lowe's 6 minutes from my house and a Super Walmart due in the same plaza shortly.

Being from Clover (don't live there anymore), I would say it's a very small town...about 5,000 residents or so. There used to be only be one red light there, but now there are about three The Wal-Mart in York is probably the closest. York is only 9 miles from Clover...not quite 17! There are a bit of reasonably priced subdivisions there, but they're not unaffordable. Traffic can be a little thick when school's in and students/buses are on the road, but besides that, it's nonexistent. Lake Wylie is 10 minutes away. The Rivergate shopping center is 20-30 minutes away...back when I lived in Clover, that shopping center, and most of the stuff around it, didn't exist...they were all big rural fields. With 49 expanded to four lanes, the drive is very reasonable nowadays. Overall, it was a great town to grow up in...if you ever have kids, it's great to raise kids because the schools are great! Hope that helps a little.
