Hi, wondering if anyone out there can suggest a town or towns based on the following:

Medium-sized all the way to very small town
Very low crime
Decent schools
Low housing cost
Visually beautiful

The town can be in the middle of nowhere, and job market does not matter.

Thanks for any suggestions!

What does low housing cost mean?

If state doesnt matter, try Lansing, Mi (or East Lansing... smaller population. )
Also look at Northern California.

I don't know about schools, but Weaverville, in Trinity County, would seem to be a nice place to live, if employment isn't an issue. I've always enjoyed visiting that scenic area.
