Southwood is good and is really new and well-planned. Lots of parks and places to walk and bike and stuff. A real modern, planned community. Very nice.

But...it's on the south side. It borders the worst part of town. The schools in that district are arguably worse than those on the NE side of town, etc.

As for the NE quadrant most areas in and around Killearn and up to Bradfordville are good. I live about 4 miles north of I-10 and it is the kind of neighborhood where elementary school kids walk to school and the HOA hires a Santa Claus to ride around in the back of a pickup on Xmas Eve.

Good place to raise a family.

Not much, I grew up in Tampa just north of there and really only went down there to go to the Ringling Museum and renaissance fairs and stuff.

It is supposedly "artsy" and is a pleasant enough place. LOTS of old people. Lots. Driving very slow.

But it is close to the beaches of Manatee County which, IMHO, are among the top three beach areas in the state. Plenty to do around Sarasota and if you want the big city Tampa/St. Pete is an hour or so away.
