Hi,
I am so confused looking on the internet...Where should I move?


Don't like cities, but don't like to be out in the middle of nowhere.


There doesn't seem to be any quaint towns or cute homes in Fl.


Also, I was just reading about the polluted rivers due to Lake Okeechobee.


I am a 57 year old female with a mother that will not move to a really cold place.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Mt Dora is cute and quaint, but it's still Florida.

I liked some places in eastern SC but was told there is a high crime rate and the people are backward, whatever that means.

St Simons is nice but it is sort of isolated. 1.5 hours from Jacksonville or Savannah. Also there is a paper mill in Brunswick, which can make SSI smelly if wind is right. Check out some towns in North and Central FL. If you are needing to find a job Jacksonville and Orlando are close.

Fernandina Beach is a good suggestion, Jacksonville Beaches, St Augustine. If you are looking for quaint and cute homes, I am assuming non-cookie cutter is what you are considering. Check out the Riverside/Avondale area of Jacksonville, as well. It is the older historic suburbs just SW of Downtown Jacksonville and very different from typical suburban sprwaly suburbs

There are a number of quaint towns in Florida. I too highly recommend Fernandina Beach and Mount Dora along with others like Winter Haven, Tavares, Inverness, Micanopy, and Port St Joe.

St.Simons is in a metro area of over 100K. It's 1 1/4 hrs from Savannah and Jacksonville. It's hardly what l would call isolated.
Thanks to conformity to EPA regulations, there hasn't been an odor emanating from the mill in many years.

That's good to hear about the mill... Jacksonville used to have the reputation of being smelly from paper mills, I remember the smell.... Its been over 20 years and people still talk about that...'Jacksonville, someplace warm and smelly'.

When I say isolated; compared to South Florida, Brunswick is a small town. SSI being across a causeway makes it feel more isolated. I would like that.

There are many who would complain about that, there are small cities all over the place where people move from large metro areas and then complain they dont have shopping, good bagels, good pizza, whatever ethnic food etc they had in the big city. Then come on city-data and talk about how horrible their new town is because it is not a big city.

Good suggestions all. I would add Apalachicola, DeLand, New Smyrna Beach and Monticello to the list as well.
