As the Herald reported; Family Circle magazine had the following post: “Family Circle, a family magazine with 19 million readers, lists Fort Mill among its “10 Best Towns For Families” in the August issue, which is on newsstands now. The listing is, according to the magazine, a “roundup of perfect places to call home” and was formed after a survey accounted for items like “affordable housing, good neighbors, green spaces, strong public school systems and giving spirits.”

Fort Mill is also home to Baxter Village, a huge master-planned community with every convenience imaginable. Like so many small towns in South Carolina, Fort Mill is experiencing a revival of its historic business district.  While Fort Mill continues to embrace its old-fashioned Southern traditions, it also offers plenty in the way of cosmopolitan attractions and amenities, from the 2,100-acre Anne Springs Close Greenway to Carowinds amusement park.
