  • If there is such a place let me know. No matter where you go its always going to be unsafe in some ways.

  • Hey, when you find out let me know! I'm looking into doing the same.

    Until then I have this really cool website that is actually a budgeting site but if you go into "calculators" it has one that compares the living expenses of different cities/states. Everything from wages, price of jeans, washing machines, etc. Its really neat.

  • I think anywhere in middle of the US like North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Okla, and Texas or somewhere else in middle is the best place to live because West Coast and East Coast are EXPENSIVE place to live. It's up to you!

  • I think that we are in the state of confusion!

    Seriously, I think that Chicago is a fantastic place to raise a family. Send me a message if you want to chat!

  • I am from a small town in Western Illinois and I liked it there there wasnt much crime, except lots of drugs. The only thing I hated was it was a drive to even get to a wal-mart and a mall was hours away. We live in NC now and LOVE it here but there is alot of crime. We are moving to Kansas soon- I dont even know what to think of there

  • I dont think any place can be considered safe anymore. The criminals seek out the safe places and ruin
