After living in the city my whole life, I am looking to make a change to move to a quiet place to live for awhile that doesn't have big city problems.
I am looking for a safe family oriented place to move with a good amount of land for each property, with a very foresty nature view.

I own multiple businesses through multiple states so employment in that particular city/state is not important but there needs to be an airport relatively nearby since I travel quite a bit for my businesses.

Based on the information given, where would you recommend I look into?

I am from Florida, but cold weather does not bother me whatsoever.

Is there anything else that you are looking for in a place to live in?

Living someplace with very frequent and extensive airline service is probably of importance, so I would recommend Atlanta. Check out the quiet SW suburb of Peachtree City which is very green/wooded and an easy commute to the airport when needed.

Not really, my wife and I have three German Shepherds which is why we are interested in having a good amount of land. Living in a heavily dense populated area in Florida, I am really looking for anything that is quite/peaceful and isolated place to live.

What is the maximum distance from an airport are you willing to go to?

Can't really speak on miles as I've never looked it up. But in reality it takes me anywhere from 1 hour and 30 mins to 2 hours to get to the airport now. That is is moderate traffic, in rush hour it usually takes me 30 to 45 minutes longer to get from my home to the airport.

I was thinking of maybe Lewis County NY, which has a lot of land and lower taxes. It is in between the Adirondacks, Lake Ontario and the 1000 Islands. Lowville, portions in the the Carthage SD and South Lewis were areas that came to mind. However, I don't know if Syracuse's Hancock International would work for you. Rochester and Albany International Airports may be a bit too far, but have lower rates than Syracuse's International Airport.
You could look into rural areas near the bigger cities as well.

Hopefully, others will suggest other areas.

Perhaps Connecticut's northwest corner somewhere in the Litchfield hills or in adjacent western Massachusetts. Beautiful, peaceful, safe places with rolling hills, deep forests, farms, lakes and small charming towns. It would put you within a half hour to and hour plus or so to CT's Bradley International airport.
