Your question is basically, "where will I feel most comfortable." As REALTORS we cannot answer questions regarding any demographic data that would be considered prejudicial or deemed to steer you towards a certain area. However, I've been a REALTOR for more than sevan years and what I know is only you can determine where you will feel most comfortable by personal exploration. The first consideration people make when choosing to purchase a home is the budget, home size, property size and how close it is to important landmarks such as work, freeway access. Based on those criteria you would be amazed how everything else will fall into place.
Best of luck,
