I've made a Similar post about which southern state / coastal city should I move to ? It was very general and now I have narrowed it down myself!
Should I move to charleston sc
Tampa Florida
Or Wilmington nc
I'm a 22 year old female, newly grad registered nurse, will be living alone , can afford 800 roughly a month for rent , I like the beach, crabbing, salt water fishing, and need many things to do to stay social and meet new people ! Which would be better !?

Take a weekend or a few days to visit both cities and get the vibe of each one. Then you'll know.

All 3 areas are good areas. You did a good job narrowing down your choices. Tampa (Major metro), Charleston (Medium metro), Wilmington (Small metro). All 3 have a lot of retirees, so nursing is big in those areas. Me personally, it would be 1. Charleston, 2. Tampa, 3. Wilmington in that order. BUT, what the previous poster said is true. It would be good idea to go visit each area to get a feel for yourself. Good luck in your search.

$800 a month could be tough in Tampa-St Pete and probably fine for Wilmington, though I think you'd find it maybe a bit too sleepy as a 22 year old and a bit remote in terms of bigger city getaways. Charleston while not anywhere as big as Tampa-St Pete is at least more affordable and a good bit livelier, though it too suffers a bit in terms of big city proximity. If open to a roommate/sharing I think all in all Tampa-St Pete would be the best option.
