I'm a disabled person wanting to move to Florida, the first of the year. What cities or towns should I be looking to move to. I need to be close to stores, doctor's office and be able to get around without too mny problems. Can you suggest some areas?

Please give us a budget, if you have to rely on public transportation, etc. Your initial question is way too general for any real input.

I'm sorry, I'm looking at about $600 a month for an apartment. I have a car but would like to use public transportation, when I'm not well enough to drive.

Don't come to southeast Florida. It would be hard to find an efficiency/studio for $600 and then you have to pay for electric on top of that. There are no cheap housing option for seniors or the disabled that I know of. Section 8 in no option, even the wait lists are closed.

I would highly recommend Gainesville. It's a college town (University of Florida) so the public transit is quite good and the town is fairly compact in terms of getting around to stores and services. The UF-Shands Medical Center has a national reputation for quality and provides care for every specialty imaginable.

Gainesville, Florida - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
RTS - Regional Transit System for the city of Gainesville, FL, the University of Florida and surrounding areas.
