Moving to grad school in Gainesville, FL

I'm moving to Gainesville, FL next year for school and have a 6 year old. There is always that one part of town considered the "ghetto", what part of town is that in Gainesville?

Seems to be a number of airports in FL, what is the cheapest one out to Philly/NJ area? It seems like Orlando to me, or am overlooking one?

There looks to be 3 Walmarts, are all three super centers? Which one is the most customer friendly?

You may want to post these questions on the off topic forum as this section is for travel only. There are some nice communites on the west side of Gainsville you may want to look into. There is probably a local paper the college kids use that will have some info there. Also contact the Chamber of Commerce and they should send you a welcome package.

I meant to say the relocation questions should be on the off topic. I'm sure someone will answer your flight questions. Orlando or Jacksonville are your closest major airports. I would look at Air Tran and Jet Blue if they fly out of where you are. They are usually cheaper than the major airlines.
