Default move to eystone heights florida

keystone heights florida is a great lil town between jacksonville and gainesville florida homes of the jacksonville jaguars and florida gators. keystone used to be a retirement town only has 2 redlights. the only thing is you usually have to work in jacksonville or gainesville area. but if you want a basicly 0 crime rate then move there. but there is the same crime almost everywhere you go but you usually dont find out about it till after you done moved in.

We are most likely going to live in a low-income housing or low rent area. I don't want to put my children, ages 0,1, and 3 in harms way, but we really want to move to a better climate. The more I look into cities in the south, the more I am concerned about the crime rate and high cost of living compared to wages. I just heard that Mississippi has a tax on groceries. I thought I found a place in Overland Park, KS but then it sounds like it might be a little too wealthy and I don't want to not fit in at all. We looked in Phoenix, AZ as I have relatives there, but the crime rate and summers are too much. I would really like to have opportunities for my children and be close to the outdoors. Oh, and I looked into California too, but that is a joke for affordability. Nice weather, though.

PLEASE ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED. HOW FAR SOUTH CAN YOU GO AND STILL HAVE LOW CRIME RATES WITH LOW COST OF LIVING AND NICE WEATHER YEAR-ROUND?
Crossville, TN. I an looking to move there myself from Ringgold, Ga. which is also a good place.

Yikes, I wouldn't send my worst enemy to Dalton. It's over run with illegals.

Including their own home-grown 'illegals', who have been there for generations.
Corruption is the main industry, besides carpet and drugs.

Gentry, Arkansas. Small town, inexpensive, located in one of the fastest-growing counties in the US. Low crime rates, home-schooling not a problem. Much more temperate than Wisconsin, and centrally located with easy access to a new airport. Carpentry jobs should be easy to find, if not, there are several factory-type workplaces nearby. Good luck!

You ask about the South... My husband and I are considering leaving the South and going to Wisconsin! We homeschool, too, but he can only work in the city and most cities are not conducive to raising a large family...

I can tell you where absolutely not to go: Gainesville and the rest of Florida below. The trend in central and south Florida is more expensive, more liberal, higher crime; the kind of thing you see in most of your cities that are on the water. One is constantly bombarded on the interstate and any major highway with billboards advertising anything x-rated. When I lived in the older money towns of Charleston and Macon, that kind of thing was seen much less and it was ghettoized.

Someone mentioned Lake City, FL. This is where my in-laws have lived for many generations. It is about 30-40 minutes north of Gainesville and is where the Bible Belt begins. It is right next to a dry county, Live Oak. Occidental is the major employer for blue-collar workers and my father-in-law is one of them. There is lots of BEAUTIFUL cheap land between Lake City and the Occidental Plant. Crime is extremely low there, too. This area is known as, "Deep Creek".

Oops, the dry county is Suwanee; Live Oak is its major town.
