Default Moving from Florida to South Carolina

My wife and I are considering relocating to South Carolina from Fort Lauderdale, FL, I'd appreciate any advice or info you'd care to share with me. We are looking to move to a safer area to raise our kids in.

Have you checked out Greenville, SC. Apparently, the best schools in SC are there. It's a neat town as well.

The suburban areas of Greenville, Columbia, and Charleston are all nice places. If you're looking for a slower pace of life as well, then you'll likely find it. Coming from South Florida, be prepared for a bit of culture shock, especially in Greenville and Columbia, but I think you'll find either place to be a good place to raise kids.

Oh, and this is true now more than ever, esp. in this economy...have a job in hand before you make a move! The employment outlook in SC seems to be rebounding somewhat, but it's not exactly a hot jobs market at the moment.

The urban areas of Columbia are nice as well. Choose A.C. Flora High or Dreher High.
