Good schools? Low crime? Good sense of community? Fun things to do? Nice parks etc? What is the cost of living like? We are looking to make a big move to a smaller type town where the cost of living is much lower than here in bergen county, nj. Please recommend your town if you can! Go anon obviously

Good schools? In some places..not the schools we are slated for which is why we homeschool. 

Low crime? Not even remotely...

Sense of community? Sometimes.

Fun things to do? Tons 

Nice parks? Sure...you just can't walk to any of them 

Low COLA? Absolutely. 

We live in a burb of Atlanta ( on the southside of the city)...crime sucks, some of the schools are great and some suck. There are a million things to do here in Atlanta.

 I moved out of Passaic county to North Carolina. Loved it and should have gotten out sooner.

I didn't know you're an Alaskan. I graduated HS in Homer, I'd love to move back up there!

Our town is nice untill your here for Awhile. Crime is on the rise, cost of living is low. Schools are pretty good with a low student to teacher ratio, but nothing really extra.
Jobs and housing are scares though. It's more of a retirement town with a growing age gap
There is the low income people who are having more kids and no job opportunities.
Most in the middle, age and income wise leave.
