parked and reading...
Gabe Sanders is your man...check out his blog and you will get an idea of prices and places.
After reading Jeff's answer, I gues he's right, check out the police records. I also like Stuart and Martin County. My son lives near there. They have much milder weather than we have here.
Fernandina Beach is definitely safe but it is probably not for someone on an extremely tight budget. There are nice areas in Yulee that are easy driving distance to Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island.
I have seen posts from Toni Weidman and her area is extemely affordable. I am sure there are others.
Gabe will provide outstanding advice in his area and you have multiple other options.
Come down and check out Martin County Florida. A great place to retire and we have some excellent bargains. Give me a call for additional information.
Agenst should never claim any city is " Safe". I would check with local police depts. Don't know anything about it, but a friend recently moved to Ft Myers FL, and they were looking for affordable living, so might be worth checking out.
