Review of St. Augustine, Florida

Possibly moving and need your advice
Star Rating - 4/10/2007
I am currently living in the Daytona Beach surrounding area and am thinking about moving to a nicer area. However my husband and I are not in the mid to upper end of the salary chart. So far the comments I have seen have been about the golf courses and living on the beach and living in a nice expensive subdivision.
My real question is for people who have to work to make a living, is this such a place without having to deal with a lot of crime, loud parties constantly, loud booming stereos? Is looking for a 600/month one bedroom apt/flat out of the question in this area?
What are the utilites/food/gas like? Does this town mostly cater to all the tourists? Is this a local resident/family friendly area?
Please let me know. I want a good, clean safe QUIET place to live that is affordable? or am I just asking to much for Florida.
