Moving back to Charleston after retirement?

Just wondering how many will move back to Charleston after retirement? We still have six years before retirement and are undecided if and where to move. We still miss all of our old friends and think of them often. If we did move back, what areas are now the safest? We know a few people that returned, some moved to Crowfield in Goose Creek, and others to Mt Pleasant.

Stay away from North Chuck. If you can afford it, Mt Plastic would be a better choice.

Was in Charleston in 1942, `43. My father worked as a civilian machinist. I was four years old at the time. We put in a small trailer park just across the road from the boundary fence on (?) one side of the base. Any idea on how to learn what shop Dad might have worked in?
Thanks for any help. Chuck Whittington
