Moving from Chicago, IL to Charleston, SC
Moving from “Windy City” Chicago, Illinois to “The Holy City” Charleston, SC might take some getting used to. Chicago has an enormous population compared to Charleston. Charleston is the second largest city in its state, but it has a modest population of about 120,000, which makes it the perfect size without the congestion of a big city. Charleston is located on the coast of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean between the Ashley and Cooper Rivers. You’ll be glad to know that Charleston is known as the best mannered and friendliest city in the U.S., and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the southern hospitality.

What you can expect from a move from Chicago to Charleston:
911 miles (15.5 hours) is the distance between Chicago and Charleston if you plan on driving. Stop by any of these cities to stretch your legs or to have fun sight-seeing: Indianapolis, IN, Louisville, KY, Knoxville, TN, or Columbia, SC.

The weather in Charleston
Charleston climate is going to be quite different than what you were used to in Chicago. Charleston has mild winter temperatures ranging from 38-60 F, a little warmer than “The Windy City.” Summers are also comfortable with highs in the upper 80s and lows in the mid-60s-70s.

Getting Around in Charleston
If you need public transportation after your move to Charleston, then you’ll probably want to take advantage of Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA). CARTA offers fixed route bus service throughout most of the urban areas in the city. CARTA also runs a downtown area shuttle called DASH to get you around to all the historic downtown attractions and businesses.
