I'm not at that base, we are in Goose Creek(really close to Charleston) at the Naval Weapens Station, but we LOVE SC!

Thank You !!!

The Base is supper small and 15 miles out from Columbia, next to Fort Jackson if heading to Eastover & Sumter !

I Googled a lot about South Carolina and it looks nice, lots of flowers, wild live & dangerous ones too !  The food looks great !!! I miss American food so much !!!!!!   We are thinking of buying a House ?  Do you know of some good locations or BAD ones to look out for ??  What the people are like and if there's crime ?

We live in Charleston and have been here for many, many years. Columbia is a great place. We have friends in Blythewood which is just outside of Ft. Jackson. It's a nice area, lots of new shopping.  Ft. Jackson has a terrific water park! We love going up there for the day.

I just got back from there a couple weeks ago, we went for a Army graduation.

I went near Columbia and it was VERY nice!  There seemed to be alot of culture, tree's and shopping. 

It seemed to be very family friendly, my husband and I noted that we may put it on our base prefrence list for this fall.

Congrats!
