Help my wife and I relocate. We've visited all and outside opinions would be greatly appreciated, cuzz it's tough. A bit about us....
Both 26 years old, she works in retail distribution and I am currently a Tennis Coach, but do have a degree in Pharmacy. We want a walkable environment and a neighborhood spot where we can walk to atleast a few restaurants, as that is what we are use to in our louisville and indy neighborhoods. She has to transfer for work and I'll manage to find something whereever I end up. We are currently in Indianapolis and moved here from Louisville, which we absolutely love, but can't move back there.... A look at the following cities we could transfer too

Sarasota, FL
Pensacola, FL
Jacksonville, FL
Mobile, AL
Greensburg, SC
Huntsville, AL
Savannah, GA
Lexington, KY

Her company is rapidly expanding in the Southeast so thats where we must go. Our home budget is 150k to 200k and we would love to only have one car if that is possible? Thanks for any kind words!

Of your list, the city that best provides the walkability your looking for and variety of homes within your budget would be Jacksonville, Florida. There are a number of neighborhoods to look at with housing stock ranging from well-established historic homes to newer construction. I'm a big fan of the Riverside neighborhood which is a beautiful well-established neighborhood (well kept traditional homes with mature landscaping/trees) that's also very walkable and close to amenities.
