Looking to move to a Southern State

Jump to last reply

We are pretty tired of the winters here in Wisconsin. My wife and I are both from the Midwest and is looking for a change. I am African- American and my wife is Caucasian, we have 2 kids 11 and 8 and want to make sure we move to an area that is very accepting of mixed marriages. Since we have lived in the Midwest our whole life we have no clue what Southern living is like. Schools are very important and of course a very low crime areas will be ideal. We have researched the Carolina's and will most likely visit the North Carolina area this Spring. Madison WI is very Liberal and laid back so we are use to college town atmosphere. I would just like some recomendations on safe areas for us to raise our family. I thank you in advance for helping us with any suggestions.

Derrick
