Hi! My family and I are looking for a nice place to live in Florida. Any suggestions on a nice town close to the beach? Thanks!

Well, can you tell us a little more about yourself? Are schools important to you? What kind of things do you like to do other than go to the beach? Are you looking for a condo, home, townhome, etc? What's your price range? What kind of home are you looking for-only new or would a little older be OK?

I think if you offer a little more info on what you're looking for you'll get more responses

Well, our price range would probably be around 140,000, our family loves old houses, schools are very important, and we like old towns, too. If we could find a house close enough to ride a bike to the beach, it would be awesome. And maybe a pool in the backyard? Hope I helped.

Well, North Port would work for the price range and schools but not for the old houses. There are none to be found here.

Sarasota has Southside Village which has some awesome old homes and Southside Elementary is great but I'm not too sure about the price range. You might be able to find something there...possibly and it would not have a pool.

I'm not sure about any other areas in the state that might fit what you're looking for. What about St Augustine? It's the oldest city in the US. I'm not too sure how there prices and schools are. I'm going there for a few days this Friday so I do some research

Okay, thanks a lot! I'll look up Southside Village sounds like the best, even if it doesn't have a pool, that'd be fine. I'll also look up St Augustine, too.

Oh, St Augustine wouldn't work, we would want it to be close to the Gulf of Mexico, not the Atlantic.

Is there a reason you want to be on the Gulf vs. the Atlantic side?

We wouldn't want to because the Gulf is warmer and calmer.
