Default Charleston Question

Is anybody here from the Charleston area? Is it a good place to live and continue raising my family? I may have a HUGE decision to make and any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks…

Default Re: Charleston Question

I live in Charleston. It's a great place to live and there is tons of stuff to do. Like the person above me, I don't know that I'd want to spend the money or deal with the traffic living on the peninsula (downtown Charleston), but the outlying islands (James Island, Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley) all have some very nice affordable areas.

You do have to get used to regular rush hour traffic and driving about 30 minutes to get anywhere on the other side of town. It's not bad compared to any major city, but for people used to normal SC driving, a 30-minute commute is a lot for some.

If you have any specific questions, I'd be glad to answer them, or at least try. If your question is just generally whether it's a nice place to live, well, I'd have to say yes, since it seems that a lot of South Carolinians want to move and live here.

I'm a native and we moved away, and you can have that entire area because it's infested with Ohio garbage who think it's really neat that you can see the sun more than 3 weeks out of the year. I love how they immediately go buy a Palmetto decal so they can be "official" Charlestonians. I think they should be all rounded up and sent to prison camps.

By the way, Summerville and Goose Creek are for dipshits that drive around in their SUVs in Croakies and Costas and are scared to go to Downtown Charleston because that's where all the undesirables are, so they stay out in the suburbs and eat at Buffalo Wild Wings and Chili's and do boring things like play golf and talk about their kids' soccer goals. If that's the sort of generic, boring life you want to lead, then have at it. Don't forget you'll be paying MORE for the boring life through a higher cost of living.

I at least respect people who live downtown more, because they have balls.

So my advice is to move to Detroit.

The TOURISTS downtown are from Ohio. Even they can't afford to live on the Peninsula. Those old money, uppity, tourist haters would never allow someone from above the Crosstown live down there.

My wife and I live downtown near the Citadel. She works downtown and I work in Mt. Pleasant. I love our location because it is in the city, yet away from the traffic. For people just moving here, unless you're used to traffic, then you may want to look on the outskirts. Mt. Pleasant is much better since they opened it up to 6 lanes on 17. Great area and probably the better schools. I'd say stay away from Summerville. The area is like Charleston in the sense of small city, but way too populated. Tourism is killing the residents, trust me. And I agree w/spareparts, Ohioans are the worst.

If ya wanna know specifics (cost of living, jobs, etc.), let me know.
