Charleston is OK. Don't move anywhere other than there or hurricane/teays valley. Also, avoid the West Side and East End when you are looking at rentals/real estate. The crime rate is probably 10X higher in those areas than other parts of town that you can't easily walk to from those two places.

Is there anyplace without druggies? No - rural and in-town. I used to leave my doors open and actually take walks in rural areas to enjoy the outdoors and used to actually walk around and shop on Capitol Street, etc.- NOPE now even to go to a mall in the Charleston area, you are not safe walking out to your car with your11groceries/clothes whatever and to walk in parking garages at hospials and malls EEK. So you need to find a place - go online and see who your neighbors will be and do some type of criminal check on line (it would cost a little) But some places even have "neighborhood watches" in their communities.

I dont' feel safe anywhere - any state - all have a lot of crime.(sigh)
