I read that a lot of people live in SC (York County) and commute into the Charlotte area for work. Just wanted to get a feel for what commuting times are like.
And if you do commute from SC to Charlotte, do you feel it is worth it..the expense of commuting vs the expense of living closer to the city?

The commute to uptown from Fort Mill, SC is about the same (25-35 minutes), if not closer, than some of the popular areas around Charlotte, including Union County, Huntersville, Cornelius, Concord, etc. Of course it's not as close as some of the areas within the city limits of Charlotte like Myers Park, Dilworth, Plaza Midwood, NoDa, etc. However, real nice neighborhoods close to uptown are very expensive. Plus, you have to take into account taxes, school districts and other factors that may be important to you.

My wife and I are in the process of building a house in Fort Mill, SC, after selling our house in Huntersville, and the commute will about the same. We're doing it to be closer to family, to be in the Fort Mill school district and for the lower taxes.

We are building in York, SC. We do not work in uptown, husband works in Pineville and I am about 7 miles from the Carolina Place mall. Expecting some traffic but for tax reasons, we chose SC. I figured it out, I will be saving more in taxes then I will be speding on gas/car mtn so I think it will be worth it.

Thanks for responding to my original post.

I drive from Wescott to Mt. P all the time. Do you know where in Mt. Pleasant you will be going, and what time of day? Both answers influence your route and drive time.

For an idea, I timed it today and with smooth traffic it takes about 20 minutes from the Wescott entrance to Hwy 17 in Mt. Pleasant. Of course, if you live deep in Wescott it can take over half of that just to get to the entrance. You might want to keep this in mind when checking out the different subsections.

I just moved from South Charlotte at Providence and 51, 40-60 minute commute, to Fort Mill, 15-30 minute commute. I'm in heaven.

I'd say around 30 minutes am and a little less pm. King's Grant is right across the street from Wescott, so the commute is the same from either entrance. It can be longer with really bad traffic, but neither of your commute times is horrible. I'll try to remember to time it specifically the next time I drive to that area. Brickyard plantation is right around the main shopping area in Mt. Pleasant, so I am there pretty regularly.
