I am looking for someplace in Florida that is safe (low crime) close to a bigger city with good employment opportunities, that has a low cost of living. I am looking at renting either a 1 BR or studio apartment for somewhere in the neighborhood of $400-$600 a month. I don't want to live somewhere that I have to worry about my car being broken into or drug dealers selling drugs and shooting each other near my house. I also would rather be somewhere in the central part of the state to at least be somewhat protected from hurricanes. I do realize that hurricanes can cause havoc even in central Florida.

So, will I find what I am looking for? I know the Portland, TX area has just what I am looking for but it's also right on the coast so hurricanes are a big problem there but I like Florida so I am looking for something that fits what I am looking for.

There are some decent places to live in Florida, But they are almost all located just outside the city limits, I live in Bradford county (north central florida) i dont know much about renting around here, I think the prices are ok. I live 15 minutes from UF. But I'm also located in a small rural area. But hey hasn''t been a crime commited here since I've lived here. We do have a place for sale in this area, Sorry I cant help you with something to rent
