Columbia, SC

Good for Families - 12/4/2018
I am in high school in Columbia and I think that it is ok. I have lived in Forest Acres my whole life and I'm just ready to get out. It is not a bad city and there are many things that I like about it but I just am ready for a change. I went to Crayton Middle and go to AC Flora High School which are both good and extremely diverse. The city is mostly safe and I feel comfortable going on runs by myself. Forest Acres is a great place to raise a family and it is also close to downtown. The traffic is only bad at rush hour downtown and on I-26. The weather in the summer is pretty hot (90-100) and winter is too unpredictable. Some years we have snow and some years the temp does not go below 20 degrees. The airport is good but does not have many direct flights. My favorite part about Columbia is that it is less than two hours to the beach and mountains and is close to Charleston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Greenville, Asheville, and reasonably close to the rest of the East Coast. It is also pretty cheap. Thinking about moving here? I wouldn't recommend staying here for more than 5 years unless you have a young family. Overall I am glad that I was raised here.
