Has anyone been in Turkey these days? Do you think the situation is good? Is it safe for travelers?

If I were you, I'd call the Embassy and ask. Travel agencies may also be able to give some advice.

Do you think they can help me find safe accommodation?

@rootlesserer A travel agency can help you up to a certain extent. Of course, nobody can guarantee your safety 100%.

I have been living in a small city in Turkey since October of 2016 with my boyfriend and 1 year old son. We normally reside in the United States. At first we were skeptical of coming out here, but now, 3 months later, I actually love it here. We just got back from Istanbul a couple days ago, and although you might get in a car accident with all the crowding and crazy drivers, it was perfectly safe for us. Obviously, if I had major doubts about the country, I would not be putting my young son at risk.
