Hello everyone. Are there any places in Florida with low crime, good schools, clean air and water that don't get hit with a hurricane?

No. Anywhere in Florida could have a hurricane hit.

As far as the crime rates, you can check City-Data and compare areas. I prefer North Port, Florida which is just south of Sarasota. My kids go to Pine View School in Sarasota county and we love it!

Yes, yes, yes, and who knows. Those are the answers in order to your questions. There are plenty of areas with low crime, good schools, air, water. Jupiter, Tequesta, Palm Beach Gardens, Boca, Parkland, just to name some on the east coast.

Hurricanes? Well sure, any area could be hit. But Palm Beach County went 44 years between direct hits up until 2004. Hurricanes are what they are, you could hit a rough patch like 2004 or go decades with nothing.

Absolutely nowhere because the last one eliminates any areas that meet your other criteria. The closest thing thing I can think of is Weston. No, I don't say that because I live there, but because it has an underground power grid, doesn't flood, and a good chunk of the city was built after Hurricane Andrew, meaning the strongest building code in the country.

Other than the hurricane part, it's a big state. You have options from the Panhandle through Ponte Verda Beach to points pretty far south.

I'll say that Northwest Florida can provide what you looking for in reference to low crime, good schools, etc. Not a perfect place, but for many of us a better place to call home.

In regards to hurricanes, the whole state is prompt to be hit by a hurricane. We got a direct hit by Dennis and we had small damage in the area, but nothing serious. The key to hurricanes is to know that they can hit your area, so you have to have a plan of attack to prepare. We get plenty of warning, so no excuse for last minute planning.

We posted many checklist and information about Florida hurricanes in the following forum Hurricanes - City-Data Forum: Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions hope this helps...

By the way many of us in the Northwest panhandle call the area Paradise...

Well, that used to be the stretch from Malapan up to about Jupiter... until very recently. Guess the probabilities finally leveled out.
