I live in south tampa and relocated here from the northeast. we like s. tampa because it gives you the feel of city life but on a smaller scale.
there's a great mom's website you might want to check out: which gives you information on the area.

romccoy, take LN's advice and rent for a while to see if you like it. My son graduated from Elizabethtown College and my ex-mother in law lives on Clearwater Beach so I kind of now about both places. You are in for a definite difference in life styles and culture. It's like saying I drive a VW and am thinking of buying a Lamborgini, can you tell me the differences between the two. I do remember the moving company told me ex mother-in-law that he brings as many people back from Florida as he takes down. Yes, the winter and spring are beautiful, but summer is a killer in Florida. Elizabethtown's summers are like Tampa's April. That being said, I would move there in a hearbeat, but my wife won't leave her grown children here in PA.

jmc..OO is correct. I can't imagine living in Brandon/Valrico and commuting to Clearwater everyday. The traffic would be a nightmare. Remember, the Bay area doesn't have much to offer in the way of mass transit. You would most likely be so exhausted come the weekend you couldn't drag yourself to a Buc's (no k)game.

I would definitely look into buying/renting in Tampa proper or in Clearwater. A lot less stress.

Don't you think it would be a good idea to visit a while beore you move. What suits one person might be the opposite of what suits you. YOung children? Schools?
