We are thrilled to be moving from Southern California to York County in the next few months. It's going to be a big change but one we are excited about. We have narrowed down our housing options to either Springfield or Tega Cay. They both have their pros, especially as the house we would get in Springfield is turn-key and lovely while the house in Tega Cay (although possibly on the lake front) needs some work. We have 4 kids that range from 7 to 13 years old. We really want a place where they will have an easy time meeting new friends and where they'll be able to walk or bike to their friends' homes, etc. Does Tega Cay, including the areas that are a bit older have many kids? Where would be more welcome and able to meet people more easily? Thank you for your input!

Fort Mill has TONS of kids and so making friends will not be hard in either development, or the schools associated with them. Tega Cay does have EXCELLENT walking/bike paths that run the entire length of Gold Hill Road.

As for YOU meeting people, if you make yourself open and available to meet people, you will. Regardless of the neighborhood you choose.

Both areas are great for kids. I will say if you're looking at a commute up 77, I would go for Springfield over Tega Cay, just because the traffic isn't as bad in the Springfield area.

Traffic is better for Springfield. The majority of the growth is on the west side of 77, including Tega Cay and will only get worse. Having the Anne Springs Close Greenway across from Springfield is a godsend and gives the neighborhood a feel like you are way outside of town. We've lived there for just over a year and love it.

Traffic in and around Tega Cay is fine. Im not sure some of the posters on this thread have been there recently.

I agree with Proud Father. Now that the intersection at Gold Hill/160 has been widened, that intersection is RARELY backed up in my experience. The rest of the way into Tega Cay is never crowded either.

The ONLY place that has backup now seems to be the Gold Hill/77 interchange, from about 6:40 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. and the stretch of Gold Hill Road from near the entrance to the old Knights Stadium up through Pleasant Road during afternoon rush hour. Neither of those places is in Tega Cay, although it is NEAR Tega Cay.

I would say the worst traffic in Fort Mill is now around Baxter Village (exit 85) due to the influx of thousands of workers to the new LPL Financial and AmerisourceBergen's HQ in Kingsley Park.

Back on topic... they're both nice areas.

Thank you! Coming from Los Angeles, traffic is probably going to seem great regardless :-) Plus we are not commuting to Charlotte every day!

*lol* That's definitely what I felt moving from NYC/NJ 10 years ago (and I still think traffic in Charlotte is not that bad even with all the growth).
