I have been in Kershaw county since May 1st and I am pleased to say that I love it here!. Moving from the city like to a small country side area has been a big change with its challenges yet effective. The neighborhood I live is suburban and mainly friendly. A lot of people in the area have been here for most of their lives and know their way around. It is a quite area which is a plus for me. I am able to have a walk without having the hustle and bustle of the city. Their are plenty of communities in the area as well.

The general atmosphere and area are great, nice quiet neighborhood, friendly neighbors, elementary school within walking distance, nearby shopping, everything you would need is close by.
I like how its not very populated. Everyone is very nice and its pretty diverse. Its not too crowded and everyone gets along for most of it.
