    Advertisements
    So for any of you ladies that have EVER been to ANY of these places...

    Which do you like better??
    1) Ft. Jackson, SC
    2) Ft. Knox, KY
    3) Ft. Benning, GA

    All I can look at is pics so I'm not sure which one I would like better. DH is putting his form in next week to request one of these 3 when he gets back. Although we won't for sure get to go there, I need to make a decision on which one I would like best....

    I haven't been to the last 2, but we lived near the first (we were at the AF base near there) for the last 4 years. We just moved. Columbia is an ok city. But there's not a lot to do.. at all. We were absolutely miserable there. Some people like it though. It seems like it'd be a good place to settle if you have kids. But if you like to go out a lot or on weekends, it's pretty boring.

    Never been to Ft. Benning but I live about an hour and a half from Ft. Jackson, Columbia isn't bad. It's a pretty calm town and there's the bars and all but it's not exactly the most exciting place.
    Ive only been to Ft. Knox once for DB's graduation and OMG it was hottttt. But idk anything about the area.

    I liked Benning!

    It was quiet, and we had gorgeous quarters.

    If you live off post make sure you live on exit 7-10.

    I haven't lived at any of the three and neither has DB but I did live in Columbia, SC for a while and it is the armpit of the world. I know people say that about New Jersey all the time (or maybe it is just all my NY family ) but Columbia? I wouldn't live there again for all the money in the world!

    I've lived in KY all my life, I really like the country setting and all but I've never been around the base. I've never been to Georgia. But DH went to bootcamp at Fort Jackson where he was at (the bct area) was Trashy, he was told the living quarters are horrible. Most the Sgts. live off base its so bad, or so they said. I would go for KY or Georgia, good luck !!!

    i wouldn't necessarily want ft. jackson since it's a training base and there are constantly graduates and trainees all over the base.

    hmm...interesting! A little good and bad about them all. Thank you all very much!!! My DH laughed at me when I told him I would answer him AFTER I got some responses from the girls on militarysos.

    I'm partial to the Carolinas...but I haven't been to any of the bases since we aren't army. Good luck though and I hope the other girls can give you advice and help you figure out which one suits you best.
