Wow...what a great town. Fort Sumter, Battery Park, The Hunley...the history is amazing. <br><br>Spent some time today in the downtown...the historic district with all of the restaurants, etc. Very nice, very progressive, lots of restoration happening. <br><br>Minimal government housing and not too many bad neighborhoods. As with any city, there's the wrong side of the tracks, but I really like it here. <br><br>Like the McDonald's commercial says, I'm lovin' it!<br><br>
My sister and her family lived near Columbia for a while. We took a ride down south of there and visited the decommissioned aircraft carrier USS Yorktown. Of course a very famous WWII carrier. It was amazing to stand on the flight deck, the bridge and walk the halls below.<br><br>
The parents love it. I think they're going to relocate here. <br><br>What really blows me away, besides the other stuff I mentioned, is how much restoration is happening. <br><br>Like in some neighborhoods downtown...you have a family on one side of the street in a house in pretty rough shape....sort of what you would think of as ghetto-style housing...yet, right across the street is a restored, southern-style 4 level home with a Lexus parked in front of it. <br><br>Very nice. They're also opening the new bridge this summer, replacing a bridge built in 1929. It's a real state-of-the-art suspension bridge...just fantastic. Like something you would see in Japan. <br><br>Definitely worth the visit. <br><br>
Oh I'm not done yet. I plan on living with every member of my family at least once!<br><br>As for my politics being like the Archie Bunker character, he was a racist, and I clearly am not. But that's why the show was so funny...it was outrageous in a Blazing Saddles sort of way.<br><br>However, it was just a TV show, so this analogy has about run out of steam. <br><br>
