Relocating to Florida- Advise

Jump to last reply

Hello,

My husband, our two toddlers (3 &1) and myself are thinking about relocating to Florida. We are originally from North Dakota and are done done with the weather here. We will not be moving unless we have found jobs first, that being said; Right now we are working on doing research about what places are the best to raise our family. My husband is a CPA (auditor, accountant and economist) and I will soon be an Occupational Therapist. We are planning to move by the beginning of the next year. Our Oldest child will be close to 5 yrs old and starting kinder-garden. We are looking for a low(er) crime rate, healthy environment to raise a family, churches, a city (or town) big enough to have everything (or enough) that a bigger city would have, also low(er) illegal immigration if possible (not such a big deal) and good, very good schools. These are the places we are thinking of:
Largo
Palm Harbor
Pinellas Park
Sarasota
Pensacola
Spring Hill
Fort Myers
North Fort Myers
Bradenton
Ocala
North Naples
We looked at all the cities in Florida and these are the only ones we would consider. We now need to see which of these rank best and why. Financially we are good. So that is not a problem. We are also looking at being on the golf side as you can tell by the cities we have chosen. Any suggestions and help on these places would be so appreciate it!
Thanks in advance!
