Destination guide

A vacation with a healthy dose of southern hospitality

Tucked at the northern edge of the state, just below the North Carolina border, this tiny suburb is a picture-perfect example of small town Southern living. Less than 20 miles south of bustling Charlotte, you couldn't feel further from big city life, though several corporate headquarters still call the hamlet home. Established in 1873, the town previously served as a meeting place for the Confederate government during the Civil War. Complete with a historic downtown and friendly local shops, a Fort Mill vacation rental is the perfect place to disconnect from it all.

Things to do

Antebellum architecture abounds in Fort Mill

There may no longer be a fort in Fort Mill, but a Fort Mill vacation rental will envelop you in the history of the Old South. History buffs will be happy to know that there are numerous sights that made the National Register of Historic Places, including the whole Fort Mill Downtown Historic District, several preserved homes from the 1800s, and the National Guard Armory, dating from 1938. Learn about the town's past at the Fort Hill History Museum and Spratt Cemetery. Take the kiddies to Carowinds amusement park, or opt instead for adults-only fun at Cat's Paw Winery.

Activities

Plenty of fresh air, and some fresh fruit to boot

For a small town, the outdoor activity options are huge. There are 3 golf courses right in town, as well as 6 parks that offer picnic shelters, sports courts, and even a small water park. For even more outdoor fun, head to the nearby Anne Springs Close Greenway, a sprawling nature preserve full of trails for biking, hiking, and horseback riding, along with a regular summer concert series. Enjoy some tasty natural treats at the town's peach orchards, or hit up the annual strawberry festival for a real taste of local life.

Weather

A welcome respite from the snow and cold of winter

You'll enjoy moderate winters and hot Southern summers at your Fort Mill vacation rental. Expect to see high temps in the 90s anywhere from June to September, with the mercury staying in the 70s even overnight. Even in the coldest months of January and February, high temps are still in the neighborhood of 50 degrees. Nights can occasionally approach the freezing point, but even if you see a rare dusting of snow, it almost never sticks around. Thunderstorms are common in the hottest months, and rains from coastal hurricanes are possible, mostly in September and October.

Natural features

A rolling land between the mountains and the sea

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Piedmont region that skirts the North and South Carolina borders, Fort Mill is surrounded by a stunning landscape of lakes and forests. You'll be halfway between the ocean to the east and the Appalachian Mountains to the west (each a few hours away). The manmade Lake Wylie reservoir winds through the plateau. The Anne Springs Close Greenway features about 2,300 acres of preserve forests, lakes, and pastures where you're sure to have a friendly wildlife encounter or 2.
