If we're taking kids into consideration, I'd put my top 5/6 locations for family/dream living right around the waterfront sections of Park West, waterfront Dunes West, waterfront Brickyard Plantation, Old Village and Sullivan's Island/IOP on the ICW. I'd also keep waterfront sections of Rivertowne on the Wando in the list.

Anyone sensing a theme yet?

Park West, Dunes West and Rivertowne, too far out...SI and IOP are too resort like, vacation destinations. can't commitment on Old Village, never been there, but sounds OLD... LOL

If children are the main consideration then Park West, Dunes West, and Rivertowne are about as close (some walk/bike it) to Pinckney Primary, Cario Middle, and Wando High School as you can get. Those areas also have great amenities for kids.

If basing it on schools, no area beats Mount Pleasant.

Too far out from what?

SI And IOP are far from resort like in my opinion.

We all see things differently.

My top five:

Sullivans - which is not far from anything (I'm downtown in less than 20 mins) and very residential.
Old Village - most homes are indeed older than I would want to deal with, but lovely.
Downtown - if I could live near the battery I sure would (we are talking unlimited funds)
Old West Ashley - the Crescent is just cool and very pretty and full of families

Can't think of a fifth. Visited all of them, chose what I liked best.

Ps. No, you can not smell any factory on SI. The pluff mud smell does take some getting used to, but I swear after 2 minutes you don't smell it at all

Its funny to me how DI is thought so " far away". We are right across
the bridge from Mt P. 10 mins or so in good traffic from belle hall. 15 to
20 from town center. A couple exits down to Park Circle. Its a good
spot.

The achilles heel?

The accursed car cursed Don Halt!*

( was another wreck this am)
