Hi everyone! This is probably not the best website to seek information, but it's worth a try. My husband was recently offered a raise to temporarily relocate to Tallahassee. We currently live in Tennessee. We have two small children. Most likely we will be looking to rent an apartment or house for around 6 months to 1 year. We will be looking for a place with 3 bedrooms that will allow for us to keep a small dog. Our budget is no more than $1500 for rent (is that enough for a decent place?). So, here are my questions: Which elementary schools are the best? Which apartments are good, without many college students, if that's even possible? Are there any areas/schools that we should avoid? Thank you in advance for any advice you may have!:)

I don't know much about Tallahassee but I would think they have a Topix page to ask your question .. I'm new to this Topix thing so I searched Live Oak, Florida in which I live and found this page .. perhaps search the Tallahassee Topix page? Good luck with your move to Florida ... and please keep your dog as many leave their pets behind when they move and that is terrible .. My dogs will always be with me no matter what .. again, good luck and I wish you much happiness with your move!

Thank you for your kind response.:) Our dog is part of the family, so we will definitely not leave the little guy behind. I will try a more specific search and see if that works out a little better...thanks for the tip.

You're welcome .... you will like this Northern part of Florida .. the natural beauty is amazing .. make sure when you get here that you can eventually take a trip to the Suwannee River .. We live 15 minutes from there and it continues to amaze me. North Florida amazes me .. We moved from up North and it is so different here .. hope all goes well and it will!.. Welcome to Florida when you get here!.. and my dogs are glad your little guy is coming too!.. See ya ..
