Florence is not huge so the "safe" places are any place that most visitors visiting the City( and not looking to buy guns or drugs) would venture.. Downtown, Florence Mall/Civic Center , Five Points, Francis Marion University or FDTC campus, commercial areas along Second Loop Road are the most common. Point being, the bad areas are easy to avoid...

If you're looking for somewhere to live while in school, you want to stay in the south or western part of town. The many apartments along Cashua Dr (mostly Powers Properties) are OK, and are closer to FDTC than the ones in south Florence (Note: Widening of Cashua will begin this fall, which will create huge traffic messes) Avoid Sedgefield Apts or Sterling Apts on 2nd Loop, and Country Club Apts on Cashua, as their locations can be deceiving. Some good options are Somersett Acres, Woodlake Apts & Brittany Place(with all 3 you can avoid the Cashua traffic mess). Cheaper but older options are Habitat 2000, Bentree Apts (bad traffic issues though) and Landmark Woods. If you wish to rent a cheap house, your best bet is in the Timrod Park area, but be careful, there are some sketchy areas in that older part of town i.e. a lot of transient foot traffic. It's generally safe, though.
