    I’m going there for a month on James island working at trident andI want to be outdoors and see beautiful things. Are there trails? I guess the plantations have a lot of walking?

  2. Matthew Sommerville on July 3, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    Wife and I moved to Columbia 2 years ago. As far as I can tell its just like everywhere else we have lived. How much better truly is Charleston compared to Columbia?

  3. David Lafleche on July 3, 2021 at 3:02 pm

    Don’t forget earthquake insurance!

  4. She Shaw on July 3, 2021 at 3:02 pm

    How is public transportation?

  5. PETERSFIELD DA BOSS on July 3, 2021 at 3:04 pm

    Hollywood aint say that 💯💪🏾💯

  6. Archie Clemons on July 3, 2021 at 3:04 pm

    Stay out of North Charleston

  7. Dave on July 3, 2021 at 3:05 pm

    The future in the South: more infrastructure, more expenses, more taxes.

  8. Barbara Godin on July 3, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    It’s flat, so flat

  9. Michelle Best on July 3, 2021 at 3:07 pm

    Forgot Goose Creek

  10. Yuzik K on July 3, 2021 at 3:11 pm

    its very nice of you to offer help and advise, especially these days, thank you for the info and thumbs up for the work you do

  11. thomas walsh on July 3, 2021 at 3:11 pm

    One thing when you move from up North to these southern cities remember why you moved and vote accordingly. Don’t bring your failed liberal policies with you

  12. Dave McKewan on July 3, 2021 at 3:12 pm

    I escaped WNY too. I moved to Greenville.

  13. Andrew Yacos on July 3, 2021 at 3:15 pm

    Like, the barbers on do Zeke style, only yoking, thanks. Charleston area rules, I want to move there some day.

  14. Carolina Andrade on July 3, 2021 at 3:15 pm

    My husband and I are moving tomorrow from NJ. We’re very excited!!

  15. Red Paris on July 3, 2021 at 3:16 pm

    Where did you live in Western ny? I live in Rochester and I might be moving to Charleston in a few years

  16. Peter Schamburek on July 3, 2021 at 3:19 pm

    I’m heading to Charleston for NNPTC In September, reccomend any good gyms?

  17. Sean Kramer on July 3, 2021 at 3:22 pm

    Summerville and Ladson seem like great values. You are 30 minutes from downtown, unless you need to commute at rush hour. That become 60 minutes+ some days, so unless you can risk being late to work, you’ll need to leave over an hour for your commute.

  18. Thomas L. Thornhill on July 3, 2021 at 3:24 pm

    No false the weather is hot and muggy! Don’t even think about working outside in mid July.

  19. Sharon Crawford on July 3, 2021 at 3:24 pm

    My daughter and her family live there. Personally, I do not like the low country.

  20. SOMETHING BIG IS COMING! on July 3, 2021 at 3:25 pm

    I was thinking of moving to Myrtle Beach.

  21. Emma Hammond on July 3, 2021 at 3:25 pm

    What part of WNY were you from? We’re near Buffalo trying to get out. I hate the weather here, and the politics. I get scared leaving everything I know here but I get excited when I watch these videos. Thank you for them! Scary but exciting!

  22. SemperFi EDC Guy on July 3, 2021 at 3:26 pm

    I’m leaving my wife and life in NJ to go south. I’m a disabled Combat Vet so have the disability money guaranteed for life. That said, I wanted to find a place (apartment/comdo) to live that looks nice and is affordable (& not too far from the beach, maybe 45 mins tops)
    Any suggestions of where good places to live are? Finding NICE affordable housing…

  23. Maurice Lee on July 3, 2021 at 3:26 pm

    Overall decent and accurate description.

  24. Railer_SC YT on July 3, 2021 at 3:28 pm

    This video was most likely to remove all this fucking popularly 🤣🤣🤣

  25. SciFiGirl007 on July 3, 2021 at 3:28 pm

    There MAY Be good private schools in Charleston, but in terms of public schools go, Charleston is at the bottom compared across the USA

  26. Ashley Ann Mulvihill on July 3, 2021 at 3:29 pm

    I live in California and have learned so much!!

  27. I Like Facts on July 3, 2021 at 3:30 pm

    My girlfriend and I can’t wait to move from Buffalo to Charleston! I’m glad to see that it looks like a lot of Bills fans will be down there with us!

  28. Shane Rampy on July 3, 2021 at 3:30 pm

    Remember when you get here…you are a refugee, not a missionary. Leave the bad, high tax ideas at the border. 🙂

  29. Dalila Tolbert on July 3, 2021 at 3:35 pm

    Awesome video!! Thanks for the information.

  30. Maddie on July 3, 2021 at 3:35 pm

    Daniel Island is a well kept secret of charelston. It’s so cute and has the best creeks to swim and boat in!

  31. Ryan B39 on July 3, 2021 at 3:36 pm

    Damn that’s too flat. No mountains?

  32. Toni Weston on July 3, 2021 at 3:37 pm

    Love Charleston, I been living here for years, but…. It’s got a HORRIBLE homeless problem here, the city is all but ignoring the problems. It’s a grimmy little city. There is little or no effort to keep town looking nice. There are pockets of project apartments right next to 5 million $ houses. Schools are a joke.

  33. Leanne Adams on July 3, 2021 at 3:38 pm

    Work for USPS and just put my transfer from Green Bay, Wi. to Charleston, South Carolina !!! Wow !!!! Am I crazy ? What is this place and why so expensive???? Any info I’d really appreciate!!! Thanks 😊

  34. Kathleen Herron on July 3, 2021 at 3:39 pm

    Traffic used to be a nightmare for residents on James Island having to depend on the Wapoo Bridge. The bridge that connects Harbor View Road to the city really helped.

  35. Sil M on July 3, 2021 at 3:41 pm

    Love Charleston will definitely consider when I’m leaving NYC!

  36. AerialLensVideo on July 3, 2021 at 3:41 pm

    Well done, Sir.
    (BUT you may want to lose a couple of the hilly/rocky hiking clips. What hills? What rocks? — just kidding – Ha).

  37. L P on July 3, 2021 at 3:42 pm

    Is there tiny house living in Charleston or nearby?

  38. SOMETHING BIG IS COMING! on July 3, 2021 at 3:43 pm


  39. Jess Hahn on July 3, 2021 at 3:43 pm

    How’s the personal care(non live in)market?

  40. MasonFC on July 3, 2021 at 3:45 pm

    I was born and raised in Charleston but I’m 9 and and you get used to it

  41. Based76 on July 3, 2021 at 3:47 pm

    As told from my tag, I am from Saratoga and if the Autonomy of New Amsterdam is impossible then to SC I go gladly. Beautiful here, funny thing, I write this comment here in SC.

  42. George Nikokiris on July 3, 2021 at 3:47 pm

    Hi, I am contemplating moving there with no job, but to be a full time musician playing americana music. Are there any areas where rent is ok? What is a typical price for one bedroom apartment? What part of Charleston should I look into? Any help is appreciated. Can I call?

  43. Reid Davis on July 3, 2021 at 3:48 pm

    I love living here

  44. Donnie Darko on July 3, 2021 at 3:48 pm

    I moved from NY/NJ to Myrtle Beach in 1995 for college and it was absolute CULTURE SHOCK for me. The people I grew up with were nothing like the people of SC. Not a bad thing, just a definite thing to get used to. Only lived there for 2 years, but overall, I didn’t like it. Now, at 44 years Old, I am considering moving to the Carolinas (Coastal) for the cost of living, diverse seasons, recreation and conservative leadership. Been in Commie Kalifornia for the past 21 years. Ready to get back to the east coast. Thanks for the video.

  45. doglover5102 on July 3, 2021 at 3:49 pm

    Lack Beach front parking for locals.

    Traffic is terrible. They say they help with roads but so many of the roads are just a way for them to make more money, so it doesn’t actually help. Lots of potholes that aren’t fixed and stop lights aren’t put very often unless it’s built with the road. Rush hour is pretty much after 1pm to 7pm at night.

  46. Melaine Campbell on July 3, 2021 at 3:53 pm

    My daughter has been in Mount Pleasant a long time and is now looking to move as the traffic and population is getting to be too much.. Schools are excellent in Mount Pleasant area. There is a lot to do but tourism and too many folks moving there makes it hard these days…

  47. SOMETHING BIG IS COMING! on July 3, 2021 at 3:55 pm

    More people want to move south from the cold NE

  48. LCM Films on July 3, 2021 at 3:55 pm

    As a lifelong Charlestonian I can assure you we wish northerners would stop fleeing their crap hole cities to come to Charleston, Summerville, or even Goose Creek. We don’t like rude people and you northerners are the worst!

  49. Robert Michael on July 3, 2021 at 3:55 pm

    More information on school districts please.

  50. BMW Fan on July 3, 2021 at 3:56 pm

    This is just life in the Carolinas in general near any city. Charlotte, Greenville, Columbia, Charleston, Raleigh, Asheville, etc
