if you will be employed in Fall River, don't take up residence in Rhode Island. your taxes between both States will be a nightmare to prepare.
i'd choose to live up route 24 or out I-195 a bit. Fall River isn't a place you really want to live.
We don't have to worry about the taxes. Husband is active duty military and a resident of South Dakota
Easton is just a tad further out than what my husband wants to live. He will be working in Fall River and will need to travel occasionally (maybe once a week) to Boston and with driving around for work all day, he doesnt really want to live more than 25-30 mins max (especially once winter comes have to add additional time). He would actually prefer to have just a 10min car drive since for the past 8 yrs he has had at least 45-60min drive, but I told him I don't know how well are chances are of finding something right in Fall River that we will love will be
We have on our list by looking at apartments we could find on line:
Highlands area of Fall River
Portsmouth, RI near Aquidneck Island
So basically, way too many options right now. We really need to make a trip out to the area for a few days to see what specific area offers more of what we are looking for.
We are putting our son into a private preschool once we get to the area since they are so cheap there so not worried about local schools.
Flex schedule not even in the picture for husband as he works very long days- some 12-14 hour days and going to get worse since he will be taking on a bigger station, but he is really looking forward to it.
I will be finishing school (if VA gets their head out of their asses and can manage to get Post 9/11 GI Bill payments out to people)
