A welcome alternative to life in the larger metro areas, York is experiencing the overflow of the rapid growth in the Charlotte Metro Area, less than 30 miles away. Positioned between the I-77 and the I-85 corridors, transportation is easy and provides excellent channels for local business parks and government. While renovation and restoration continue, new municipal facilities and road projects are on the horizon boosting economic development.
The leisure and excitement of water play is just minutes away in Lake Wylie. With 325 miles of shoreline, the lake is ideal for boating, fishing and diverse water sports. Seasonal changes enhance the surrounding area’s beauty and allow for outdoor activities such as golf, tennis and bicycling enjoyment.
Every year, York celebrates Summerfest, a widely anticipated festival that celebrates the community through arts, crafts, concerts, golf, tractor show and a moonlight bike ride. The annual Christmas Parade is also a favorite event amongst the 7,500 residents, inviting visitors into the historic century-old homes and churches decorated for the season. The residents’ involvement has helped establish a healthy business setting while preserving the area’s natural environment. A family-oriented oasis within close proximity to Charlotte and lakeside towns, York offers the best combination of traditional, small town charm with big city opportunities.
