Charleston, South Carolina is one of my favorite cities in the world. I have been fortunate to have traveled to some pretty amazing places, but Charleston, in my humble opinion, is near the top. Popular travel magazine, Travel and Leisure, recently echoed these thoughts when it named Charleston, SC as the 4th Best City in The USA or Canada.
If you are considering moving to Charleston, buying a second home or retiring, I strongly encourage you to make at least one visit before you make any decisions to buy elsewhere. Charleston should be on your short-list.
One of the first things most people are drawn to Charleston for is the Historic District. The area is covered in some of the quaintest architecture of any American city. Homes range from the classic Charleston Singles to Greek Revival and everything in between.
Aside from the food and architecture, one of the things you will love about Charleston is the people. Charleston has, for over a decade, been voted as the most friendly city in the USA. I’m often asked how folks from other parts of the country are accepted in Charleston. I always point people to the friendliness award and tell them to go out into the community for a day and see for themselves how friendly folks truly are. Charleston is a real melting pot of people and backgrounds. I can just about guarantee you will meet nice people and feel welcomed.
Outside of the Historic District of Charleston, you can find a borough to fit most any taste. The upper-end homes are situated on the islands of Sullivans Island, Isle of Palms, Folly Beach and Daniel Island. More luxury real estate can be found in Mt. Pleasant — a place, I have been fortunate enough to call home for nearly 20 years.
Some of the other popular areas around the Charleston peninsula are Summerville, North Charleston, James Island, West Ashley and Johns Island. These areas circle the Historic District and offer reasonably priced homes within, at the most, a 30 to 40 minute drive to downtown Charleston and beaches.
