My husband and I are considering relocation to the Charleston area and had some questions. I've been doing research online and have read some bad things about the area, I just wanted to see if you all would agree or not.
- Crime - I've read there is high violent crime, higher than most cities that size.
- Fitting In - Is it hard to fit in there if you are not from there? I've read a lot about the "insiders" not allowing many new people in, especially those who are not old southern money.
- Weather - We live in WV now and I hate the long, cold winter. However, I'm not a fan af the August heat/humidity either. I'm hoping Charleston would be a place that has more moderate temperatures for more months out of the year (here the only comfortable months are May, June, and September - others are too cold or too hot).
- Jobs - Is it pretty hard to find a job in the area?
Also, if you could recommend good areas to live for a young married couple wanting children in the next few yhear, that would be great! We don't mind suburbs either.
