I moved to SC recently and dislike it very much. I originially from AL, but dont want to move back there. I been looking at either Jacksonville,FL Orlando, Tampa or more towards the northern area like VA. Im currently in school if that makes a difference and somewhere where you can raise a child, cost of living is not to high, and low crime rate. I have also considered Texas, Austin or Dallas. Anyone with helpful info?

What don't you like about Alabama and South Carolina? Perhaps that will help us give some better advice about Florida.

Ever considered coming to Maine? Very beautiful state, lots of cities but lots of country, too. Low crime rate. Low population. Beautiful mountains match hundreds of miles of beautiful seashore. Unfortunately becoming more of a liberal state, politically - getting to be as bad as Mass. but lot of caring people here. We take care of our own pretty well - lot's of services (we have the taxes to prove it). But we do have a fair amount of republicans and an ever-growing amount of independents. In spite of the Bill O'Rielly "SP's" there are a lot of patriotic traditionalists who work hard, have strong family values and go to church. I would never live any place else.

Texas is a good option if you dont mind the hot summers. I reccomend Texas over Florida because houses are much cheaper and so is insurance.

I was thinking about a Florida move, but due to insurance rates, taxes, and sinkholes on the rise, I've started looking elsewhere: Ga,Tn, Al, Tx. There may be no state taxes in FL, but what you spend trying to insure your home will eat up any savings plus.
