I second that. Also Carrollwood is nice and better located for what you want. Or Citrus Park.

Citrus Park looks like good areas for someone working near TIA - easy access to Veterans' Expressway. Good recommendation. Also Linebaugh (east of the Expressway seem like a good location - don't know if your price range housing would be available).

Also would look around Lutz (Lake Fern Road) - horse country, rural with nice subdivisions - might find something in your price range. Key is to look around Vets Expressway for easier access to work.

I think Odessa or Citrus Park sounds good for you, especially if working by the airport. It'll be right down the Vets, although that highway is a pain in the ass during rush hour.

Seffner sucks, you coudn't pay me to live there.

It's a little sad, as I grew up in Seffner. Moved to Brandon after I finished school, and lived there until I moved to Knoxville 6 years ago. I go back home now and it seems so run down and sad. I lived off Old Hillsborough Ave between Parsons and Kingsway. It's not what I remember as a kid..

If you are going to be working by the airport I would recommend looking somewhere around oldsmar, town and country areas. Dont want to move to a place where u have to depend on getting to work thru I-4.
