We are visiting my daughter in Charleston for a week or two. I've been exploring areas with the help of my GPS to look for areas that we'd consider when we relocate here in about a year when hubby retires.

I like the proximity of Goose Creek and found a charming neighborhood today in Summerville called Briarwood that has the charm that we are looking for. Established in '75... sidewalks, nice back yards, and TREES!

Can anyone enlighten me about this area? I didn't notice a community pool, but wondered if there is a Summerville community pool close to join?

Thanks in advance for any input!

That is a nice wooded established area. Since you like Briarwood, check out the following;
Irongate (pool) & Newington Plantation (especially this one).
Both of these are in the same area.

For Briarwood, you would use the pool at the YMCA, less than a mile away by the Publix.
You can also join some of the other neighborhood pools.

Save yourself some time and have a Realtor bring you around. It's free!

Try various areas in Summerville. The historic area is charming and there is a Y downtown. It is a wonderful small town. The best hotdogs are to be found at Guerins, a locally owned pharmacy that is the oldest in the southeast and (gasp) delivers!

Jim...
Thanks so much for the info. When we get down to the serious stage of purchase planning, I definitely will head to a Realtor. Not using one would be a poor decision IMHO.

Right now, we're exploring... we were at the Azalea Shopping Center to go to a particular store and just kind of headed out into neighborhoods that looked like what we wanted on our return trip back to my daughter's apartment in North Charleston. I saw the Briarwood sign out front that stated 'established in 1975' and thought I'd head in to check it out.

I'll check out information on the two neighborhoods you mentioned. Thanks!

Goose Creek is nice - but seems to be mostly newer subdivisions - and I like that more 'mature' feeling in a neighborhood. Kinda like hubby and me -

Oh yum! Now THAT sounds delicious! If we head up that way today I just might have to put that into my GPS and find a good hot dog!

I love the older part of Summerville and will explore a bit more up there. It would be a good excuse today to head to Guerins for lunch!

Thanks for the info! I truly appreciate it!

IMHO, you just can't compare Sville and Goose Creek. Yes, Sville is further from downtown Charleston, but I just don't think Goose Creek has the charm of Sville.

Just my opinion...everyone has one :-)

Briarwood is a lovely neighborhood - I know someone that lives there and when I drive through all the homes look so neat and tidy with nicely kept lawns. It's worth a look for sure.
