Default i want to live in florida!

ok so im graduating soon and after i work the rest of the summer i am planning to move down to florida from pennsylvania. im thinking i want to live on the east coast and some what close to the beach. im young and want to have a lot of fun and would prefer not to live in a real big city. i want action but not a whole lot of crime. i will be renting an apartment with one roommate. quality is not an issue it just needs to be cheap. where would you floridians recommend?? ive wanted to live in florida since i was very young. i hate the cold and want a warm paradise all year long. any info would be very much appreciated. oh yea i dont want to live in the ghetto or with a bunch of old folks (40+) or a real touristy area. thanks!

When you find a place in Fla. that meets all those criteria, would you please clue the rest of us in? BTW, I am 57, so I guess I must have one foot in the grave!

I would recommend the west coast of florida, to me the gulf is safer to swim in. Clearwater is beautiful city, it would depend on what job you can get.
we loved brandon area,

East Coast of Florida, not a lot of 40+, action but not a whole lot of crime, you are asking for a lot. The cheapest areas of Florida are in North Florida or maybe the Panhandle (but that isn't east coast, they do have the prettier beaches though). So maybe Jacksonville, they probably have a night life, and they have a mix of ages, not as many snowbirds as the west coast of Florida so that would solve your 40+ thing. I am not sure about the crime in Jacksonville though, but it can't be worse than Orlando's crime.
