Could anyone suggest any good towns East of Columbia, SC to live in? I may have a job opportunity out there so looking for towns East up to 30 min away. Give me some positives if you can because I have to sell it to my wife and it's a tough sale!

Also good school systems are a very important factor.

Any info would be appreciated.

I lived 30 mins east of Columbia, SC a few years ago when I was stationed at Shaw AFB. A lil place called Sumter, SC. Do yourself a favor and steer clear, its like metro Atlanta out there. Kid once got mowed down by an AK when he knocked on a door on Holloween, the drug dealer thought he was the cops.

If I got stationed out there again I'd probably live in Columbia, most likely around the Lexington area. If you have to live East of Columbia, Florence is a decent enough choice. Its about 45-1hr East of Columbia and an hour or so West of Mrytle Beach.

Camden would be better, but it difficult to generalize here in South Carolina. You might want to look into a good realtor. Even if you just plan to rent, many realtors keep rental listings, they do it to get your future business. They know the areas pretty. Columbia is a good choice, however it too has bad areas.
