5 good reason to bypass South Carolina
1. They dont believe in education
2. They hate women
3. They have no industry
4. If you live above the mason dixon line, you must be related to Sherman
5 Even the coast, though pretty is backward and problems like rape domestic violence, date rape drugs being administered in Grand Strand bars, major problems in the hotels with violence and theft..dont bother.

Not all it's cracked up to be. - 8/18/2013

I moved here from Michigan. I've regretted just about every day that I've been here. It's hellishly hot and humid about 4 to 5 months out of the year. Never ending rain. And, surprisingly, it's mostly very ugly! Ever hear of fire ants? Hope you like them when you encounter them! And gnats! Wow! Be careful swatting them away from your face while walking- you're sure to walk right into spider webs. Yep, spiders hang EVERYWHERE. This part of the country is sold as a paradise of some kind. In reality, it's a nightmare come true. I was stupid to stay, so I'm still learning to be tough![read more...]

Religion - at a Cost of Love and Concern in South - 7/16/2013

If I were anyone considering moving to South Carolina, from a state that has liberal views and respects other peoples lifestyles (I came from Massachusetts) I would not suggest moving to South Carolina! I was shocked when I came here that at every corner was a church and everyone was a adamant (or so-called) Christian yet, I have heard no lack of prejudice for black people, intolerance for poor people, and a general malaise for anything progressive in the way of accepting people at all. I originally came to live with a Brother in Law (B-I-L) who's family was associated with "The Bob Jones University/church", an institution who's unaccredited classes, that further close minds, piggery, waggery, scientific principles, place locks and chains on medical ideas, ultimately, likening S.C. to being in the Dark Ages. I was very leery coming here but was assured that I would not have much contact with these people, to my dismay I WAS around them and heard things I wish I could UN-hear and still can't believe that they were said with a tone of righteousness. So in the time I spent with these people, which happily I no longer do, I heard from my B-I-L's mother, that the "Samaritans" (a wonderful, giving, organization) are a horrible group because they "enable" drug addicts and unwed mothers and she's was sixty year old woman who has seen lots of life, she should know better, I nearly fainted on her comment! And when my B-I-L and I were relating a story about some church going people that left without paying a bill at Pizza Hut, my B-I-L's, Sister-in-Law (S-I-L) (whispering as though that would improve her next comment) said: "were they black people", sadly, she didn't get that the story was aimed at the "nice church going people" grumbling at the waitress, because it was late to their table, they proceeded to eat the whole meal (maybe 15 people were eating) then they fought with her and the manager, that they weren't going to pay since they felt that they had too many problems getting their order. I was appalled watching them ...I have had many waitress friends in my day so, I am always patient with help and tip well, I hate unreasonably picky clients, that eat their meals then pick on the server. (BTW We knew they were church goers since they talked very loudly about their "church work" and their status in the church). This whole mentality really sums up the "High and Mighty" Christian ethics of the south, and with the "take" of the S-I-L afterwards, not even[read more...]

Quality of Life in SC - 2/3/2013

Those criticism of SC are not correct. SC is a wonderful state to live in, low taxes, nice people, beautiful land, beautiful lakes and beaches. There are even mountains to enjoy in the northwest part of the state and its beautiful. Columbia has alot of cultural things to see and do, great downtown areas to enjoy, many events to take part in. SC has many historical places of interest also. Weather is good with the exception of summer in Columbia and surrounding areas where it is really hot. When doing things in SC its best in Spring, fall and winter. If you love hot, its summer for you. You would enjoy the state very much.[read more...]

Its A Police State - 7/16/2012

Lived here for 12 years. Most small towns in this state are addicted to alcohol, meth and traffic fines. Highway Patrol are everywhere and they WILL ticket for the smallest speed violation. Fines can only be paid in cash. My neighbour is a retired cop and he told me they split up the money in the back room at the end of the court day. The magistrate takes the biggest cut. Lousy schools with low test scores/graduation rate. Meth is everywhere and the local police are often paid off to look the other way. Don't come here unless you love b-b-que, drugs, hunidity, teenage mothers,and guns. [read more...]

Autistic Adult - 12/3/2010

In 5 years my daughter will be 21 years old. She is autistic. I want to move to South Carolina from New Jersey. I will pick the city based on what it has to offer my daughter in the way of a day program. She will need to have a day program to go to or have a job. Does anyone know of a city that has programs for disabled adults? Also, I am a chef and would like to open a small cafe/deli. Do you think the people of South Carolina would like authentic Italian food??? Or am I barking up the wrong tree.. I would love some feedback. Thanks..Lisa[read more...]

North Charleston, SC - 7/7/2010

North Charleston South Carolina is a very nice city. I live off of Rivers Avenue, close to everything. These are a few places that are within 20 miles; Downtown Charleston, West Ashley, Mt. Pleasant, James Island, Johns Island, Summerville, and that is just to name a few. There are things to do alone and with family & friends such as; Whirlin' Waters, Splash Zone/Island, SC Aquarium, Northwoods Mall, shoppong outlets, beaches, and so much more. I know I am giving the highlights of North Charleston, but I am looking for something different. I am not sure but I know this is not the place. The people are nice, there is a lot to do, even sight see. [read more...]

General Information - 3/28/2010

Although the climate here is great and the beach definitely a plus, unless you are a retiree, entrepenur, or transferred here with a large company I would not advise moving here. The unemployment rate is through the roof and there is little hope for recoverey anytime soon. Everyone you meet is from somewhere else...very few locals will welcome a "yankee". But the people you meet form elsewhere are great and everyone has a story. The best time of year for us who live here is March-May and the October-December. It is quiet and the weather is fabulous. If you have the money it is a really nice palce to live if can tolerate a "tourist town". [read more...]

A very red city in a very red state - 2/4/2010

I am a far left liberal. I've lived here for almost 40 years and I have only 2 friends. So keep that in mind when I tell you that South Carolina is as far right as any state in the union. Race, religion, science, national defense, the arts ... you name it and South Carolina is stuck in the 1960s. South Carolina used changed from Democrats to Republicans in late 50s when the Democratic part championed desegregation. That’s when the state went solid red. That should tell you a lot about politics in South Carolina. [read more...]
