JOB IN denmark, SC-closest/best city

Been researching, is Aiken the closest /best city to live in?

We have 2 small children-saw woodside plantation...need to be in the best area with best schools........any info on this city would be great! Moving from South Tampa--wondering if we are going to go into shock.

moving form tampa to this area will be quite a shock, there are very limited services, even grocery is few and far between. zero fast food. but excellent country cooking is available when you can find it. i love the area but it is out in the boonies. if you are looking for small town america this area has a host of itty bitty towns tailor made for you. denmark, north, springfield , salley and even swansea are charming little towns each hosting civic festivals but have yet to attract much commerce, almost none. it's in the country, land prices are cheap, there aren't many jobs and thus very limited services. aiken is a charming city rich in a diverse culture and is the closest actual city and has everything you've come to expect. other options would be columbia or augusta. the area is convienent to charleston and savannah. but both are more than an hour away. good luck!

I was born & raised in Aiken; it's a great place to live & raise kids. Aiken has any type of fast food you'd want; they even have a mall. It is close to Augusta as well as Columbia (the capital which is a lovely place). I think you'd be much happier in Aiken with your family than in Augusta. Crime is MUCH less in Aiken & the schools are excellent. It even is home to USC-Aiken (branch campus to the University of South Carolina). I now live in Orlando, but I miss Aiken soooo much. I loved calling Aiken home & think you will, too. Best wishes on your move & new position.
