How much is your rent and the city where you lived in? Is it a one bedroom , a house?

How is the school there? Fun places to go? Crime rate? Tornadoes? Jobs?

And if you have a picture of your town that would be great just to get  a glimpse of the neighborhood. That would be great.Thanks!

1080/month. Fayetteville/Fort Bragg, NC. We have a 3 bedroom 2.25 bath townhouse about 1200 sq ft. We live on post. The crime rate in the area is high. It's terrible here. lol But don't have a choice :)

Before DH joined we paid 1300/month for 3 bedroom/ 1 bath bungalow style home about 1000 square feet. About 2-3 miles from the beach in Pinellas County FL. Good area, ok schools

Los Angeles Ca. I live in a two bedroom apartment with two baths.

My rent is $1350.00 per month no utilities included. The area where I live is pretty secure and gated. There are a lot of fun things to do and we are close to the beach, museums, malls, movie theaters, aquariums etc. We don't deal with crimes at all and no tornadoes

Thanks! Sorry to hear :( That is a good price though for a three bedroom. What are the usual crimes in your area? Is it near Charlotte?

Are you familiar with Charlotte? how's the crime rate there? What are the usual crimes there?

I live in central IL and I live in a 2 bedroom 1 bath tiny duplex for $500/month.  Our town is about 11,000, and there's a few things to do here (rec center, river, quite a few parks, bowling alley, cute little shops uptown, etc), but we only live about 30 mins from a goodsized town, so we just go down there if we wanna do something fun!  We get tornados thru Illinois, but I don't think we've had one go thru this town(but then again, I've only lived her 1 1/2 years, so I'm not sure!).

ETA:  Schools are pretty decent, and the crime rate doesn't seem that bad...most of it seems to be stupid stuff like DUI's(that's REALLY popular here) and drugs.  I don't think though that we have major drug issues though...
