What I am looking for is information on the individual cities such as:

What areas of the city have low crime?

Which areas have good public schools Elementary and Junior High?

Is a degree in Accounting or Business Administration good to have in the city? (I am planning to eventually get a Masters or PhD in either)

What areas are within an hour of driving distance to the community college and/or the graduate college (UCF, FSU, USF)

What is there to do for Children 3-13?

Is there some sort of child care assistance program? For example, in Polk county we have the Early Learning Coalition.

Cost-of-living? I make a little more than Minimum wage so this is important. I need a place I can afford, but is safe for my daughter and I to live in and has a decent public school system.

Are there any Taxes I should know about?

Gas prices?

What is the atmosphere like? Are people prone to be friendly or antisocial?

In your humble opinion, Which of the three cities is better for a single 20 something mother with a 3 year old living on minimum wage while going to college?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and answering my questions
