Depends on what side of the tracks you want to move to,on the east side we have little Brazill and on the west side we have the rednecks and yuppies. Drugs ,alchohol and murder and mayhem are still on the menue regularly around here

I have to agree with Reddogg on some points it does depend on where you would go in Goose Creek, like any city there are areas that you would not want to live, and jobs in Goose Creek are scarce. But the city is not the pit of problems he makes it sound like.

"...jobs in Goose Creek are scarce." You don't move here for the jobs, per se. Goose Creek is a small City, a suburb of Charleston. We mostly commute. There is no "murder and mayhem" in the streets. It's Goose Creek, not Los Angeles!

If you can speak and read Spanish then it's a great place to raise your kids. Most of the road signs are in Spanish as are buisnesses. I just moved to Summerville, the next town over and it's ok just don't go to any special town events here or in Charleston cause you'll be stuck in traffic for 3+hours just to stand in line another 1+ hours.

Goose Creek is kind of small. It's a nicer place to live as far as affordability is concerned. The Summerville, Moncks Corner, Goose Creek, Hanahan, N. Chas, are usually more affordable than closer to Chas. The closer to Chas you get...i.e. West Ashley, James Island, downtown.....then the $$$$$$$ comes in...but i guess it also depends on what kind of house and whether you will rent or buy. I am pretty satisfied with G.C. I live off of Liberty Hall Rd near N. Rhett. Almost N. Chas borderline, so very convenient. Check it out, but you will not find anything under $800 that is nice anywhere around here. Expect to pay more.

I lived there a huge portion of my life. School systems are horrible. They are filled with racism from all sides blacks whites hispanics. Crime is highest in N. charleston sc thats only a few minutes from Goose creek. Jobs are scarce SC in general is a horrible place to raise children or for anyone to live in DONT GO THERE PLEASE SAVE YOURSELF DONT GO!

goose creek is not that bad. i moved here about a year and a half ago and have not ran into any problems. it only took me about two weeks to find a job that i love (and its not fast food or retail). all you have to do is look around. there are jobs out there. its kinda in the center of things without being in the middle of the crowd in n. chas or way out in the middle of nowhere in moncks corner.i found a nice 3 br 2 bath house with big fenced in yard for less than $800 mo. so dont write off goose creek just yet.
