I have lived in Utah all my life, in very cold cold cold places. I work currently at a hotel by a ski resort.

Thanks for any help!

It looks like your office is in the Westshore Business District, the second-biggest business district outside of Downtown Tampa. There are some nice apartments and townhomes in the area bordered by Westshore, 275, Lois, and Kennedy. The neighborhood used to be (and some blocks still are) somewhat rundown, but it's never been high-crime. You'd be close to work, plus Westshore Mall (middle-class) and International Mall (more upper-class). You'd have easy access to the airport, plus two of the bridges, making trips to Pinellas County (the beaches, Clearwater, St. Pete, et cetera) very easy.

I live in Westshore Business District, across from INTL plaza. It is a great location and about 5 minutes from south tampa which is the best nightlife spot in town.

You are in for extreme culture shock coming from utah. Tampa, also sometimes referred to as "Trampa" is a party town. It is near some of the best beaches in the country and it is summer time 9 months a year. People act crazy down here, the nightlife scene is great, and it is a ton of fun.

I am a 28 yr old male to give you a point of reference for my opinion.

Note: If you are a Mormon, you are going to be horrified with the way people act in Tampa.

And that's why I love it here...

I was raised LDS (mormon) but it never fit my life style.

I just love teasers. So, tell me... How do the people act in Tampa?
