Hello all. I am new to this website so I am not sure if i'm posting in the correct category.
So anyways. My fiance and I plan to move out of Pennsylvannia for good. There's no excitement here in PA, just boredom and it's also a commonwealth. He's originally from The Virgin Islands but he has lived in Florida. I'm originally from Brooklyn, New York. We are a young couple in our early, early 20s and thinking about relocating down south. I only visited Orlando, Florida when I was younger and fell in love, however I would not want to relocate there now after researching and discovering there's a lot of crime that transpires in the city. We have a few states in mind: Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, and/or Virginia. We are searching for somewhat of a small town, lots of greenery, friendly people, access to a lot of outdoor activitie, little to NO CRIME, GREAT COLLEGES, and peace. Any suggestions? When it comes to Florida I don't care much for Orlando, Tampa, or Miami. (Or any areas very close the the cities listed) When it comes to Georgia, we are not interested in living ANY WHERE near Atlanta or Savannah. For North Carolina, Charlotte is definetly crossed off the list.
We do have two cars we are bringing so transportation will not be an issue. We are thinking about renting for now (apartment wise), we both attend college.

A.

We have four commonwealths that are actually states in this country. I was born and raised in one of them; Massachusetts. It has no constitutional impact and doesn't make a difference.

Just saying, the crime in Orlando is horribly over exaggerated. If you don't want to be bored, the only place I'd recommend moving is to a city. There are beautiful, safe "small-town"-like suburbs near Orlando, like Winter Park- home to one of the best colleges in the southeast (Rollins College).

Virginia is a commonwealth too, but I would suggest Charlottesville. Smallish city/town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mtns, with UVA. Some crime but not much.

If people are going to go with Charlottesville VA, then Chapel Hill NC might work out for you too. Maybe something like Elizabeth City NC might work as it is close to the ocean, but is close to the Tidewater/Hampton Roads area of VA, which has close to 2 million people now.
