Rock Hill is the largest city in York County, South Carolina, United States and the fifth-largest city in the state. It is also the fourth-largest city of the Charlotte metropolitan area, behind Charlotte, Concord, and Gastonia. Elevation is at 676 feet. This is fast-growing area with numerous subdivisions, many small roads, and very busy highways.

The two RV Gypsies have been to Glencairn Gardens several times because family lives nearby. It has several beautifully landscaped ponds, gardens and walkways, which provide Karen with the opportunity to take many photographs. Several visits have been combined here. It is interesting to see the difference in colors due to the different seasons. There is NO admission fee for the general use of the garden, however, some special events may require an admission fee, and there is usually plenty of parking on the streets.
