Me and 3 friends are planning on spending the summer in Florida. We're graduating college and want to go somewhere to have fun. We want to rent an affordable home in an area with young and attractive women and a great nightlife, but not too expensive. What would be good suggestions for us?? Key west? Miami? Tampa? Ft. Laud?

a place over $3000-$3500/mo for rent would be too expensive. $30+ to enter clubs would also be too expensive. guess that puts miami out? but what about fort lauderdale?

What about West Palm Beach? Also what are you planning on doing for work? I would take that into account where you could find a job that suits you.

Default Word!

Your OP doesn't mention if your cool plan requires you find jobs to make your summer fling work. If so, you'll probably be SOL and have a miserable time struggling anywhere in FL.

If you've saved up some funds, I'd highly recommend Daytona Beach!

If you land a summer job, great. If not, the cost of living is EXTREMELY low here, including rents, food and nightlife. There's ample nightlife to make it a memorable summer break! Summer Cubs baseball games are cheap and fun. You can stay out late here too! The beach is FREE.

There are 5 local universities, 4 local business colleges and several trade schools in the area. There will be no problem meeting people your age here (in that some other affordable areas in FL are ONLY full of retirees and shut down by 9pm ).

Here's a link to the local events mag for a feel/ideas:

Daytona is also an excellent base for exploring other areas for day trips like Orlando, Cape Canaveral, St Augustine, Ocala National Forest, Gainesville, Tampa, etc.

Good Luck!

Miami Beach. You can get a luxurious 3 bedroom apartment right on the ocean or bay (with gym, pool, concierge, etc. in the building) for $3000/month, and have bars, restaurants, and shopping within walking distance. By the way, it's free to enter most bars and there is a cover charge of $10-$20 to enter dance clubs, depending on the night.

Daytona Beach is another decent suggestion, as are Saint Petersburg Beach, Key West, and Fort Lauderdale.
