Hanahan, South Carolina is a relatively small town. However, it is just outside the city of Charleston, South Carolina; therefore, the population grows every day. It is a busy area with a lot to offer, including: employment, activities, restaurants, convenient stores, etc. It is a very big tourists area, so people from all around the United States are here every day. One down fall is the big, tourist, popular area attracts danger and conflicts. If I had the chance to live here again, I would definitely move here earlier in life and embrace the cultural diversity, opportunities, and beautiful scenery.

I love where I live. It is peaceful and quite. The neighbors are very nice. Hanahan is a very safe place to live. At night it is very peaceful, no loud music or distractions. The cost to live in Hanahan is high but its worth it. The diversity in Hanahan is not wide at all. This is a prodominatley white neighborhood.
The Charleston area is a really nice place to live if people want to have a new beginning. The people are generally nice and always like to welcome new people with open arms. It is filled with history in the downtown area. It also has some beautiful beaches. The weather is crazy sometimes because it can be sunny one day and cold the next day. If I had to choose to live here again if I had a chance i would. I see this area growing not only by population, but by economic growth. I see the Charleston area being a very important place in the future.
