Hi yall...lol. I just got back from 5 days in Summerville. Actually we stayed in Mount Pleasant but we drove to Summerville every day to check out the area. I took a lot of pictures so I thought I would share them with everyone looking into the area.

Here are my thoughts, coming from a South Florida suburb minutes away from Miami and ft Lauderdale. The place is really different then what I am used to. The streets are smaller and there are a few shopping centers. Most of the stores are close to the street. There are big name grocery stores all over, and a target. I saw some signs that said they were zoned for commercial, so that is a good sign. I also hear that most stores are in North Charleston so it is not a far far drive, but not like 2-5 minutes like here. There are a lot of fast food restaurants but not restaurants like here. Here we have every chain restaurant plus a million family owned restaurants. Most of the stores along the way are small and old. The gas stations are small too. there are trees Everywhere, something that I am not used to at all. there were not a lot of big names stores, so I guess most things are a little drive. (please correct me if I am wrong)

There is an area that I guess is called historic Summerville and there are big homes in there and small homes. All covered with beautiful trees arching over the street! I would live there if I could afford it. 400+ for a nice one. There are new communities going up all over the place.

I saw kids outside playing with their parents, riding bikes, playing sports.. which is why I want to move there.

We also visited the beach, Isle Of Palm. It had a great little place with stores and the beach was really big (lots of sand) it was hard so you can ride a bike on it. there was also a dock for fishing.

Historic area is beautiful, a lot of the area is not visually appealing while some is...but the feel there is really great and we met some great people and had a really nice time. We are looking forward to moving there.

Ok here is when you first get there. It was noon so there was a lot of traffic

Downtown shops, not really much shopping but it is cute

quiet intersection


georgous trees everywhere

these are the little stores that I am talking about. they are all over.

nice homes on the way to knightsville

farm, i think there are horses in the pic

big lots, 1/2 of that is my lot

isle of palm

wild life

oh here is the publix so you see it is not all trees

Though I love living in DC, those pictures made me homesick! Especially those IOP pics, driving over the "Connector" on a clear day cannot be beat..
