Moving from Atlanta, GA to Charleston, SC
Sticking to the south with a smaller city
If you’re a true Southerner at heart, moving from Atlanta, Georgia, to Charleston, South Carolina, won’t be too much of a culture shock. Although Charleston, “The Holy City,” has fewer residents than Atlanta — close to one-third the population — the southern city has much to offer with plenty of hospitality to make you feel right at home.
You can expect familiar weather when you arrive in Charleston. Throughout the year, the temperature usually stays between 43 and 89 degrees; compared to the typical lows and highs of Atlanta (35-89 degrees), you won’t notice much change. However, you can expect a different rainy season in Charleston since the wettest month is typically August rather than the usual wet February in Atlanta.
