The new year is supposed to be met with a renewed faith in all the potential good fortune that supposed to come; a restored optimism that promotes the idea of out with the old and in with the new.

Building a new home in beautiful Charleston, SC is the perfect way to convey that sentiment, so we give you five compelling reasons why starting the year with a new home here is the best way to kick off 2016.

1. Alternative Commuting Options

Anyone who has lived in the area long enough can rattle off at least three or four parking nightmare stories in rapid succession. The last few years, though, has proven fruitful for the alternative transportation sector, with new bike lanes, increased bus routes, as well as Uber and Lyft services available in the area.

2. Become a Beach Bum

Several beaches in the Charleston area provide convenient access to nearby communities and neighborhoods, too. Even if they aren’t found right near the shore, there are plenty of areas that are a quick drive, bike or walk nearby.

3. Embrace the Outdoors

Running, hiking, off-road biking, golfing and more are still just a fraction of the outdoor-related hobbies and events you can get into this year around the city. From weekly jogs across the Cooper River Bridge to amateur and charity golf tournaments, you can get together with new friends and neighbors to truly make a day of it all.

4. Gain Some Sea Legs

Speaking of water, Charleston is surrounded by it. There’s a large sport-fishing community as well, where some do it for fun while others make their living on the water running charter boat fishing trips. Get in on the action to see how much more fun can be had exploring the Intracoastal Waterway.

5. Get Creative

With a bustling arts and entertainment scene, Charleston is a bastion for some of the most creative minds in the south. The Spoleto Festival, starting in mid May, brings celebrated artists across all disciplines to the Holy City. Smaller artisan markets and festivals are also held throughout the year.

There’s no better time than now to capitalize on everything that the Holy City has to offer. From access to premium beaches , to a bustling arts and entertainment scene, and more, there’s no place that a growing number of people would rather be than right here in Charleston, SC.
