Anybody know much about the USF area. Wanting to go to a Maxi Priest concert at Dunns River Island Café which is just south (2 blocks) of Fletcher and Bruce B Downs intersection. Going to be a late night and that's a Jamaican café. Any thoughts? And we very white! Haha! Just throwing it out there and trying to get an idea. Definitely not trying to offend anyone.

which still makes it relatively safe, or a low crime area in most other cities.

Sorry....Meant FOWLER, not Fletcher. And thanks so far. Just trying to get an idea of the area. It will be my girlfriend, myself, and her parents. Just don't want to walk into something bad.

It's a pretty high traffic area, more commercial than residential, and right next to campus. Be smart and you'll be fine.

scbroncrider, if you haven't been there, something else you may want to check out sometime is Skippers Smoke House on the corner of Skipper Rd and Florida, just north of Fletcher. Wednesday nights they have a local reggae band Impulse that plays; great food and drink prices too.

You will be fine at Dunns River, as longas you dont go walking about afterwards then I dont see any issues. Avoid fletcher west of bruce b downs, even the walmart lol

Just go from the place to your car and don't stop for anybody else who wants something from you (rather be found rude then being robbed) and you should be fine...Lock your doors but that counts for any place nowadays.
