Goose Creek, SC Overview

The largest of Berkeley County's communities, Goose Creek was established in 1961.  In just a few short decades, this progressive community has achieved a balance between growth, the environment and the preservation of the small town character.  Residents live, work and raise their families surrounded by the rich historic and natural treasures of the low country.  In the early 1960s, developers began subdividing the area's farmland to provide housing for a booming population.  In fact, a 1969 survey rated Goose Creek as the fastest-growing area in the nation.  An avalanche of new recreational services and town activities including sailing and boating were developed to meet the needs of a growing population.  Homes are still comparatively affordable, drawing many retirees.  With antebellum plantations, rolling farmland, deep forests, and wildlife refuges including Goose Creek State Park, the community is steeped in individuality and independent character.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
