I have plans to check out Charleston at the end of May for a future move from Tennessee. Any suggestions on what areas to look at that don't cost a lot but are still somewhat close to downtown area? I appreciate any suggestions. I hear it's beautiful and I can't wait to visit.

I like the West Ashley area.
Have you seen Market street in downtown Charleston yet?

Sections of West Ashley are convenient to downtown Charleston. You have taken some great fish photos. Maybe you could take some photos of the amenities and attractions in the West Ashley area to share with out of town forum members thinking of relocating to the Charleston area.

I' sorry. I thought that you made your living as a charter boat captain and not as a professional photographer. I make my living as a Realtor, but am pleased to share the results of my photo and other skills with forum members and others who might benefit by them. Google earth is a great tool, but as you may know difficult to use to get a feel for an area, particularly by those not familiar with West Ashley or Mt. Pleasant. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I suspect that my photos and videos give forum members a better feel for the Mt. Pleasant area, better than they would get by using google earth.

I do both Joe. Been fishing for about 40 years and doing the photography for about 25. The photography helps in the winter when the charters slow down.

Sorry ,,but I just dont go out and take pictures of MtP for the fun of it.


Now if I was on this forum and was a realtor,,,I would have plenty of pic's of MtP.......................

I am not asking you to take photos of Mt. Pleasant, particularly as you have said you try to stay away from it. I was suggesting that you take a few of West Ashley. If you are a professional photographer, I would think that your photos might not only be beneficial to forum members but also may drum up some business for you at the same time.

The outer-lying areas of DT are Mt. Pleasant, West Ashley, James Island Johns Island and North Charleston. If you look hard enough, you can find decent housing costs in each area. You'll also find outrageous pricing in all areas too. That's kind of a cool thing about Charleston... there are all walks of life and lifestyles living next door to each other.

West Ashley, N. Chas and Johns Island will probably have the best overall pricing, but that's because Mt. Pleasant and James Island are closest to beaches as well as DT. I live on James Island and LOVE it because DT is 10 minutes one way from my house and the beach is 10 minutes the other way. The best of both worlds! I used to live in West Ashley which also is not bad, just made the trip to the beach longer, however I was closer to the airport and all the big N. Chas shopping centers.

Since you'll be new to the area, check out this site for some cool stuff to do:

Good luck with your move!
