BEST PLACES TO LIVE: Where homes are affordable

Median home price: $119,000

Median family income: $56,090

When Rock Hill's textile jobs were shipped overseas, it was forced to diversify into other businesses. Good thing it did. The town has seen an uptick in hiring lately, especially in professional and business services, like call centers.

But it's not all work and no play in this town of 68,000. Each spring, Rock Hill hosts the 10-day-long Come-See-Me festival, which includes fireworks, games, parades and cook-offs and draws more than 100,000 visitors. There's also 31 parks, four recreational centers and a nature trail.

Home prices are about 25% below national norms, reflecting the area's low cost of living and median household income.
