  • I will be visiting in September and staying on King street. Can somebody tell me how is traffic around 4-7pm going from king street to FLETC?

  • People don't fall for the low city population numbers. Archaic annexation laws allow for difficult city expansion thus low numbers.

    It's basically 900k people in the Charleston and Columbia areas and 1.1mil in the Upstate Greenville-Spartanburg area.

  • What a BEAUTIFUL city. It feels like a mix of Europe and the old South… I've got to visit this place soon!

  • Nice video, however I disagree with one part. I officially live in the City of Charleston, BUT, I actually live in a neighborhood “West Ashley” (west of the Ashley river) more towards Magnolia Gardens so Charleston can and is growing beyond the peninsula.

  • Damn dude it’s weird seeing people talk about Charleston positively because I ever do is talk it down and compare to the cities out west

  • I hate king street you can't get anywhere at night without some drunk girl running into the street

  • I love Chucktown. I have family there and visit often. Gets really hot in summer and downtown has a constant smell of urine. I highly recommend a visit to one of the local plantations and also make sure you go see Angel Oak. A tree that will blow your mind.

  • Did ya come to any of the hoods? If you kept coming down King Street You would have definitely ran into one 😂
    When you visit go to our hoods 1st That way you won't get any ideas of moving here…..BECAUSE WE ARE FULL
    You guys get here and can't drive 🤦🏾

  • Don't let that low population fool you it may seem small because of South Carolina's anex laws but trust me its way than 130,000 people

  • Two-five millions dollars ? These houses are more expensive than the beach houses in Los Angeles

  • I spent most of my life in the Charleston suburbs. Summerville, and North Charleston to be exact. I was born in N. Charleston my parents are from Ohio. My dad joined the Navy, and his first assignment was here. We moved every couple of years, but always found ourselves back in Charleston. I love it here, but with decades of uncontrolled growth it is a nightmare to get anywhere around here. I wish people will stop moving here we are full, and that is no joke.

  • Can you do a video where you drive through Columbia, South Carolina?! Because that's my home city!

  • Well I'm from Houston and not to talk bad about but I wouldn't live in that country slow ass town 3 min

  • Nice city, but not my cup of tea. I would feel like a sardine in a sardine can. Give me the wide open spaces of the western US.

  • We love Charleston! My family would vacation there all the time. May be going this August
