Hello I am currently living in Memphis, Tn Been here all my life, ( going on 30 now) and I am ready to get out. I am looking for somewhere that is close to the beach i.e. not in the middle of the 2, preferably northwestern fl. I need a place with a cost of living I can afford and somewhere that isn't crime ridden. Where should I look. BTW I have a computer/ tech support and HVAC / Appliance parts/sales background. I've heard a lot about sunshine pay and high cost of living... but I'm not sure how that works w/o lots of crime. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks Jon

Find a job in a decent size city like Pensacola or Panama city to work in and live in the country with a short commute to work and the beach.

If you like living in surburbia, then move closer in. Rent before you buy and get to know the area.

Tallahasse is OK for job prospects but the closest beach is not like those further west.
