We may be moving to the Columbia area in the next 6 mos. My husband's job would take him into Columbia. I want to know about safe neighborhoods/towns, that can accomodate my family. I'd like a 4 bdroom home (Large dog, 4 kids, and I am a DIYer) room to run and safety for one of my children who is a spec needs child. I LOVE older, historic homes, but will do without if necessary. I am assuming smaller towns would have these amenities, but I'm not sure. I do not like to shop. I do like to garden and I love to make and hear gorgeous music. (ie. early music, etc.) Is there a fit out there?
