My family will be moving south in about 2-3 years.  I am starting my research early.  I am looking to find out what areas in NC, SC, or TN are the most affordable and safe areas to live.  I would like to know the best schools in the areas as well. 


Any input is greatly appreciated.


Thank you all :)

Dorchester district 2 schools in Summerville Sc are top ranked. Low crime. Average cost of living. Lots of young families.

We moved to the Middle Tennessee area a couple of years ago and love it here!  It is beautiful and quiet.  I'd say it's a fairly low-crime area, but you should research that - we live in the country, not the city.  Look into the area north of Nashville and up towards Clarksville, as it will be a lower cost of living than the area just south of Nashville (Brentwood, Franklin, etc.).  You could also consider Murfreesboro, which is a quickly growing city about an hour south of Nashville.
