The fast-growing city of Goose Creek is home to plenty of industry and desirable Berkley County public schools. Located just above North Charleston, the area was largely undeveloped until the 1960s. Today, many military and civilian families enjoy the small-town feel and numerous amenities found in Goose Creek. Outdoor recreation in the city is plentiful thanks to area golf facilities, 13 parks and a reservoir enjoyed by anglers. Within the municipality are numerous grocery stores and restaurants, top-notch doctors and a variety of employers, making it easy for residents to avoid a commute if desired. For its proximity just 30 minutes from downtown Charleston, the city is quite affordable with real estate starting in the mid-$100,000s.
