Most people have heard Charleston is a beautiful city. Charleston is unquestionably beautiful and needs to be seen by all. Bear in mind that the entire area is built around sucking you dry of money. From your air plane ticket, food, hotel, and attractions, plan on overspending. Walking is free, but nothing else is reasonably priced. Don't wear your heels, ladies! You will likely stumble and fall on the uneven sidewalks or the passed out drunks after the bars close. Did I mention how disgustingly hot it is in July and August? After spending an evening downtown, you may lose your sense of direction and find yourself driving on "Rivers Avenue.", a long stretch of road that will have you believing you are driving thru the set of "The Walking Dead". Lock your doors and keep driving, even if the light is red. Parking downtown is a hassle and it is getting more crowded everyday. Contributing factors for bad traffic include horse carriages pulling lazy tourists, narcissistic millennials taking selfies in the middle of the street, and junk cars driven by rednecks that break down in the middle of the road. You see, there are no emission laws here so you can smoke up the state with your polluting "puzzle piece" of a car that you resurrected from LKQ. In closing, Charleston is a good place to visit, but don't plan on spending much time here. Southern cooked meals will make you sick and fat. Be on the lookout for palmetto bugs, a southern euphemism for the giant flying coach roach that inhabits Charleston. You may find them walking on the wall of a restaurant or scurrying under your bathroom cabinet. They won't hesitate to drop on your head or run across your toes in the middle of the night. For this reason, it is my recommendation to travel with a man so he will do his duty of disposing the cockroach for you.

Job and College My family wants to relocate to a coastal city and are very interested in Charleston. My question is, my husband is currently a regional truck driver but we would like him to find a local job so that he can be home with our family every night. In my searching of job sites I haven't been finding much of that job being available so I was wondering what …
