Can anyone please help?
I currently live in Memphis,TN and want out. The crime rate is simply too high.
I need suggestions for places to move my family. We recently visited downtown Chattanooga and LOVED it! Currently, that is our 1st pick, but I just want to make sure its "the" place before we pack up our things.
Here is what we are looking for:
1. family friendly-parks, playgrounds, bookstores, good schools.
2. affordable (ie. a nice home for $250,00 or less)
3. SAFE!!!!
4. walkable. by this I mean that I love the idea of putting the baby in the stroller and walking to the grocery, the park, bookstore, ice cream shop, school, etc.
I want to get out of the car!!
I really loved the feel of downtown Chattanooga-family friendly and safe but also sort of urban and artsy while also having that small town feel. Looking for similar towns.
5. prefer to stay in the south east but open to other suggestions

I don't mind living in a small town as long as A.it is withing 10/15 mins of a decent sized city and B.as long as there are some interesting things to do in the small town (bookstores, children's museums, etc). BUT would prefer to actually live in the midst of all the neat stuff

Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated! I am exhausting myself always researching and exhausting our wallet visiting places that aren't what they appeared on the internet.
Please help us find our "Leave It To Beaver" town!
Thanks again!

I think a lot of people want what you are looking for. I suggest you go to the Atlanta forum. I think some of Atlanta's neighborhoods have these features.
Also some small towns ringing it. Then again Florida may have some as well though the cost may be higher. Check their forums.

Is there a reason you are not considering Desoto County?
