I live in Charlotte and decided to come down to visit Charleston with some friends. I'd have to say I was truly amazed and surprised at truly wonderful and awesome of city Charleston truly is. I really love the retail on King street and the view of the water from Battle street. I love the market on Market street and the hotels of Francis Marion and the Embassy Suites seem awesome. Great job on urban re-use. We in Charlotte have done with several of the textile mills in the area. If you ever in Charlotte check out Southend and NoDa andyou'll see. In the mean time I just had to let the residents know, you have a truly wonder ful city.

I grew up in Charlotte, but I left in 1992. I have lived in several cities up and down the east coast. However I agree that Charleston is a great place to live. So glad you like it here. Come back and visit anytime! :>)

I definitely will. I plan on checking out the Embassy Suits that is located in the old Citadel. Not to mention I have some family in North Charleston. Plus, I want to check out Jimmy Nick's and get some She Crab Soup.

Charleston for me was the most beautiful US city I have seen BUT the most boring for a young/single 20 something looking for alot of fun young professionals...I thought the young single scene was really lame. I would love to move back when I am 45 Gorgeous city!

A few years back in 2012 I was so impressed with my initial visit that I honeymooned there in 2012. Had a blast again and stayed in Francis Marion Hotel. I finally checked out Jim N Nicks. Never did get the She Crab Soup though. Discovered the Cinnebarre movie chain and went to the aquarium.

Can't wait to get back also. Miss the great summers and the smell of the salt marshes.
It has that special ambience and European flavor that you just can't find anywhere else in the states.
Remember many years ago driving back from Calif. with the kids, and hitting U.S. 17 south. As soon as we smelled the salt marsh we knew we were home. Glorious!

Well I'm living in the greater Charlotte metro area (Rock Hill) good city to raise family, but they are about grow. Just purchase a small townhome in ncharleston and will relocate next summer (2016) hopefully with a job. Charlotte tries to be hip but it's a giant manufactured developed neighborhood.
