Fortunately or perhaps unfortunately for me, I'm relocating to the Charleston area. I've spent a sparse amount of time there for the last few months as initial feelers but haven't ventured very far outside of the three blocks surrounding the hotel. In any case, I need some advice. For the first two to three months I'll be living in a hotel and there after I'll be looking for a small flat. I'd prefer to live in the downtown area, as I'm working down there and currently do not commute via a car (I loath dealing with traffic, so a bikeable/walkable commute is far superior for me).
That said, what are some hip spots in that area to rent from? lofts and studio apartments are prefered but not a requirement.
Also, anyone care to list some dive bars? I found one or two that I liked but am open to more suggestions, especially if they are downtown.
And finally, something to do in the huge city of Charleston? I like a lot of expirimental/noise music and prefer to dive into that scene when present.
Thanks for your time!
- oh, relocation
