I guess it all depends on what you're looking for, really. I assume there are a lot of nice areas, but I haven't been here long enough to know where they are. I live near Brandon, and while a lot of people apparently like it, I personally find it hellish. Of course, this is also given the fact that I lived my entire life until early this past year in the country, middle of nowhere, and the traffic around here and hoardes of stupid drivers just kill me.

I don't know a blessed thing about the schools because I homeschool my son. He's 5 so I only just started.

If you do move here, make SURE you have a job all lined up, because the employment thing basically really sucks right now.

I live in Clearwater just moved here in Oct. because of my husband got a new job and I love it here. When we moved here we had three foster children it was a pain to get them in school but once i finally got them there it was a great school. I looked up the scores and they all seem to have good grades

 I would research school districts there.  I am a little south of there. Typically the better areas have the higher rated schools. Not always the case because my neighborhood is zoned for an F rated school currently but they are building us a new school. I lived in S. Fl for 10 years and moved up here 2 years ago. My family likes it better.

I also grew up in South FL, but I've lived in Tampa for 9 years now & we love it. Same conveniences as South FL with a little less craziness. Lots to do & lots of nice areas. Good schools depending on what neighborhood you choose, but there's lots of different areas with something for everyone.
