My husband and I along with our 10 year old daughter and possibly our soon to be 20 yr old son is looking to relocate to Fl. We are looking for an area that has good schools, children & pet friendly neighborhoods, lower crime, close to major stores (walmart), clean and affordable. We have looked in St Cloud but heard that the neighborhoods are going down and it may be a bit racist (my husband is vietnamese/white and I am black) so that made me a little uneasy. I heard about Winter Park but the homes that they have are older than what we would like. Can anyone help us out?

I would recommend Lake Mary. The schools are excellent, and it's pretty safe. It has a bit more of a multi-cultural population and overall has a much more highly educated population which tends to not be racist. The neighborhoods closer to I-4, particularly on the west side of I-4 are best in that sense. FYI, I wouldn't rule out Winter Park. It by far would be the best area for you. Older well-kept up homes in Florida outlast the overwhelming stock of shoddy new construction homes, particularly in hurricane season. The neighboring town of Maitland would be a good choice as well, same school district and there are a number of newer builds if you can't get past that.
