What's your housing budget, and what kind of job are you looking for? Niceville in the panhandle recently was named the best place in Florida to raise a family, but the job market is a bit wonky.

The right answer depends on a better understanding of your needs, budget, and skill set if you're seeking paid employment. If you walk into Niceville but need a brand new 2000 sf home for $250K on a quarter acre lot with a pool, then it's not going to work.

Brevard County (where Palm Bay is located) has one of the best school systems in the state. I'm not a big fan of Palm Bay personally but many do like it. The schools are better elsewhere in the county (Palm Bay is one of the weaker links) and would steer you more toward the beach communities of Satellite Beach, Indialantic or Melbourne Beach which have the highest ranked schools. All have low crime and are great for families. If you're more a fan of cookie-cutter/new construction communities check out Viera, which also has very good schools and sits around the midsection of the county much further inland. Check out the Brevard County forum here on City-Data for countless threads about the area. Good luck!
