I currently live in Palm Beach County and they are raising our Homeowners insurance by 50%. So I am looking for a new place. I want to be by the water but I am looking for something affordable. I will be doing a road trip soon and would like some input on which way to head. Thanks a Bunch. Oh btw I am 36 swf, so some social life would be nice.

Angry The Bay Area

My parents just recently relocated from Greensboro, NC to Tampa, FL, and they love it. In my visits to Tampa-St.Pete, I found this area of South Florida to be very reasonably priced considering the very desirable location, the people are friendly, and the job market is expanding and competitive. Tampa is a big city, however, it maintains the "normalcy" that I think Miami and other East Coast Florida communities don't have. I hope this was helpful. P.S. Just say no to Jacksonville,FL,

VW If you go north up 95, don't stop till you get to the Northern VA area. it is here that you will find a vast amount of employment and a wide variety of fields and a whole bunch of water along the chesapeake bay and it's tributaries. Not to mention a housing market that is out of this world. And if you want, I'm a swm 41, look me up if you make it to the area. ;-) Hope this helps and good luck with the move.

Tampa and Hillsborough County probably is your best bet as far as a social life and reasonable housing, but it also has some fairly widespread crime problems as well. Northern Pinellas county (around Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, etc.) is much nicer, but pretty far removed from party areas like Ybor City and such.

Jax is a very weird town. More like Georgia than Florida. It's hard to put your finger on what's wrong with it, but it just never "felt" right to me. Of course if you want to live on the coast there's always the panhandle area...just make sure you own a pickup truck and have a large dog to ride in the back...

Another quick thought is the Daytona area. I haven't lived there, but it, along with the surrounding area, is my preferred travel location in Florida.

If you are looking to relocate. Steer clear of South Florida. I have lived here for 2 hurricane seasons and I am RUNNING back to North Dallas!
