It is church affiliated - they went into the old Krispy Kreme building. The people who bought that building from KK are not ready to open their business yet - so they have agreed to let the teen group rent it. I believe I read that in the local paper just recently.

That particular area (New Tampa) has a lot of teenagers who hang out at the movies/Starbucks/Coldstone/Steak 'n Shake on Bruce B. Downs. This area is also closer to USF. (I have been a teacher at Wharton HS in New Tampa for the past 3 years and this year decided to take a leave of absence to focus on real estate. Many of my students live in the New Tampa area and really liked it because they always had plenty to do.)

Our niece lives in the Westchase area and they hang out near the mall - Citrus Park Mall. They also like going to Clearwater Beach on the weekends with their friends.

Ybor City is a very popular place for older teens/younger adults. Not your ideal place for a younger high school student though.

Have you decided what area you will be moving to yet? You may want to consider their interests when picking neighborhoods as this will make their transition easier for your teenagers.

Let us know if you need any additional information on a specific area.

Tina

Are you staying on the Hillsborough side? We have lots to do on the Pinellas side from the beaches to Baywalk in downtown St Petersburg.

Where on the Pinellas side do you live? I am moving to Tampa in April with younger kids, 7 and 9yrs and REALLY want to be on or close to the beach! Any thoughts?

Seminole if you want public schools, old north east if you want a lively downtown, but don't count on good public schools, north county/eastlake/palm harbor for reasonable access to beaches and good schools, but far drive to downtowns. If your children are in sports, there is tons to keep them occupied. Pinellas has some of the best soccer for youth around, and lots of other sports from water sports/fishing to football. You will find it a lot busier than where you are, and a little more cosmopolitan too I think, not saying G'boro is a backwoods, just that greater Tampa Bay is pretty huge. WE moved here when our two were 6 and 8, and they attended public schools in sem and st pete. Now in college. Beaches are lovely right where we live and lots of non flood zone property available close to water.
