I'm in my 20s, single, white, nominally Christian/not really religious, a republican and I'm from Baltimore City in MD.


I'm sick of pervasive ghetto culture, crime, high taxes etc.

I work in security, I want to be a cop.


I'm looking for a safe city (defined as nowhere in the area is too dangerous for someone to walk through at night) with a good economy, in a solid red state. Somewhere without crazy racial animosity, abject poverty, riots, no-go zones, high taxes etc.


I'm open to living in suburbs too.

Charlotte? Greenville, SC? Huntsville? Nashville? Indianapolis?


I've been to Atlanta and Houston and didn't like either.
I'm open to suggestions, would like to move ASAP I hate it here and the riots pushed me over the edge. I have a paid off car and $6500 to get me started.

Every city has its no-go zones for night. Every single one, unless it's REALLY small.

I know every city has poor areas, but does every city have ghettoes that bad? If so that's really sad

Greenville and Huntsville are the best two options out of your list there for your criteria. Greenville is has the better downtown of the two if you care about that.

I'm afraid you won't find anywhere that doesn't have an element of racial animosity. It exists everywhere, especially in all of the cities you've listed. They all also have their areas of poverty and higher than average crime.

Huntsville has some real cool older homes adjacent to their downtown.

it isn't a bad downtown, just not as many people down there as Greenville's.

Huntsville has the scenic roads over little mountains next to the downtown. Probably the best in town mountain roads that I've seen outside of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga. i'd almost like to live there just so I could drive over it every day

How many people live in each downtown? I have no idea, but they seem pretty similar in size and vibrancy.

I don't know, there are more older houses right in downtown Huntsville than Greenville, but more condos going up in downtown Greenville. Greenville is a lot more vibrant, if you look on H'ville forum they rarely talk about downtown. exact opposite of the Greenville forum. I like Huntsville's though and it has a clean look to it and a nice duck pond

They aren't. Huntsville's downtown isn't bad but it's definitely not on Greenville's level in terms of vibrancy and amenities.
