Thank you, Marlow! That's a helpful start There is a Montessori school I see, through 8th grade that would work. "A +" or Arts Plus Academics are schools i've been looking for. I have contacted a few studios....and I would reach out to the VA and to other groups I'd want to partner with to teach yoga....

Do you have any information about neighborhoods, or resources I can check out with regards to neighborhoods?

We would be looking for somewhere relatively "safe", with other kiddo's and people who are in their 30's and 40's or so

I forgot about the Corpus Christi Montessori school. I have friends whose kids went there and they liked it. There are also several private Catholic schools and a few other religion-based private schools if you're interested in that.

As far as neighborhoods, it depends on what you're looking for. All the new neighborhoods are on what is referred to as the Southside. The farther south you go, the newer the subdivisions are. I've always lived close to the bayfront because it's the part of town I prefer. If you want to live in that area, look on a map and find Alameda street. Any neighborhood within a few blocks of Alameda, from where it intersects with Staples until it hits Ennis Joslin will be safe and family oriented. The closer you are to Staples, the older the houses will be. In the Del Mar area, many of the houses were built in the 20's. When you get closer to Alameda and Glazebrook, the houses were built in the 40's. In Lamar Park and Pope Place, they were built in the 60's etc. Within that general description, there are a couple of sketchy areas. If you see a house price that looks too good to be true, it probably means the neighborhood is not great.

On the Southside you'll get more house for your money. I don't know what your housing budget is, but if you wanted a big house in a newer neighborhood, I'd look along Oso Creek and Oso Bay. But you'll drive a long way (for CC) to get downtown or to the bayfront, or some of the schools mentioned.

If your husband is from CC, he may have a negative attitude about Flour Bluff, but there are some very nice subdivisions out there these days.

Thank you Marlow, for replying to my question and directing me to the General moving forum

If you are interested in backyard farming Gardendale is a good neighborhood. It's off Weber South of SPID. The houses are on large lots with bigger backyards than normal. It's not a high end neighborhood but not a bad one either. It's also close to the Southside Farmer's market. Because of the good weather the Farmer's markets go year round. Their biggest issue is finding farmers. Demand is always there for product.

I remember when I lived in CC the residents thought it was going to be the next LA. Are you guys still talking about that?

I've never heard that. Hell, I've never heard it as being the next San Antonio or Austin.
That being said, it is better now than it was in 2011.
