I am wondering where in Florida there is open land, where there is a low crime rate, few snakes and alligators, and low poverty. I'd someday like to move there and am just wondering. Thanks.http://pics3.city-data.com/forum/ima...lies/smile.gif

Personally, I think Florida is stupid. They have among the lowest ACT scores in the country. They're next to Cuba. They have hurricanes. I would suggest not moving there.

There's probably some areas, but not that many.

I think you might want to look north central Florida. Ocala Florida would be a point on the map to begin your search.

The terrain there is less flat more rolling hills, It's horse country. While snakes and alligators will exist, I think by being above the lake county which is Orlando south, you may find fewer of these critters.

Remember that the gross generalizations are lumping 18 million people and many square miles of land into a few words.

My neighbors 3 girls were born and raised in Florida, all three were accepted into excellent Ivy league schools. They are not the only bright kids educated in Florida.

My wife and I never felt as safe as we have in the 18 years we've lived in Florida.

Hurricanes are a fact of life here. But weather is everywhere.

I don't have a clue as to what is wrong with being close to Cuba, but then I live in Florida.

What's stupid are posts like this ^^

Florida is a state, not a person, a state can't be "stupid." We are not "next to Cuba, we are surrounded by the Gulf and the Atlantic. We have occasional hurricanes, along with all the other Gulf and Atlantic states. Florida does not have the lowest ACT scores in the country. Let's see where you got that info.

To the OP, besides Ocala, you might look into Dade City in Pasco County or Brooksville in Hernando, and points north. Lots of beautiful countryside up that way as well as rolling hills.

The rolling hills? Maybe Tallahassee or the panhandle?

There are some short very steep hills in the countryside west of Orlando.
