Get Away at the Green

Fort Mill’s finest outdoor recreation is available at Anne Springs Close Greenway. The asphalt jungle of city life gradually gives way into a dirt path that leads you to Steel Creek. You can stop and sit before you continue on to a nature center with more than 30 miles of trails to walk or bike as you continue exploring. The Greenway is dog friendly if you have a canine companion to accompany you. If you prefer to add some sports into your outdoor activities, visit one of the town’s parks. There are tennis and basketball courts as well as softball fields for some friendly competition.

Thrills and Theatre

Fort Mill is practically next door to Carowinds. This 398-acre amusement park is home to dozens of rides and a water park. A day at Carowinds is rife with adrenaline-fueled fun, such as the Skycoaster and Drop Tower. For something a little less intense, check out Planet Snoopy, which is a section of the park devoted entirely to the “Peanuts” characters. Nothing beats a good murder mystery with dinner, and at NarroWay Productions you can try your hand at solving a case that occurs while you enjoy a delicious meal. They also perform comedies, Christmas specials, and musicals, all while you dine.

Down Home Cooking

Southern food has a distinctive flavor, and there are plenty of places to taste it in Fort Mill. Local Dish may not look like much on the outside, but it is of the best restaurants in town. The made-from-scratch chicken potpie will make you want to come back for more. For barbecue, 521 BBQ & Grill does it up right. The pulled pork is juicy and bursting with flavor, and the baked beans and coleslaw are great additions. Speaking of cake, the Cupcrazed Cakery has cupcakes so moist and rich you may wind up taking more than a few home with you.
