Are you relocating to palatka? It really depends on who you ask. I've lived here my entire life, never had a problem with crime, the schools are average, but have a lot of teachers that care and do a great job.
I actually will be renting out my 2 bedroom condo in about a month. There aren't a lot of choices as far as apartments, you may be better off renting a house. A 2 BR apartment is in the $800 range, electric will probably run you $150 in summer, much less in winter. Water is about $35/mth.
If you have a neighborhood in mind post it here or post your email address, i wil be glad to give you my opinion.

We would possibly be looking at rental houses that are dog friendly....they are potty trained..we have 2 dogs. so a small yard atleast would be great. Yes...my spouse possibly getting a job down in the area. so I'm trying to do research. Our daughter loves sports (basketball, volleyball, etc) e love spending time outdoors. Is there any laws or ordinances against firepits? I have never been to florida much less ever contemplated moving there. But things change. Ty for your help!

The schools are Horrible. Your best bet is the Charter school run by Dr. Melosh (dont know if it is still run by them). Im not implying that all of the teachers are bad or dont care because I am sure many of them are good teachers. However the Putnam County Schools are plagued by mismanagement and it does have some teachers that are just there to draw a check and do the minimum required.
