Likely headed to Tampa next summer from the DC area (VA subs). Have grown accustomed to good schools, high taxes, bad traffic, safe neighborhoods (with a few exceptions), crazy pace, amazing economy and job market.

Can anyone tell me what Tampa has to offer that will make my relo that much more fulfilling once I get settled. I have little ones as well. Not in school just yet.

Job mkt? Cultural diversity? Any North vs South issues? What makes Tampa a desirable place to live?

Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.

Not there yet will be in the summer as well, been there 4 times and I love it you will find a lot of negativity towards you coming down here, taxes are cheaper for me coming from NJ the only thing more expensive will be the house insurance, a difference of about $350.00 more a year in my case, I love Florida I will get use to the heat that is fine with me, the area has a lot to offer a lot of jobs might pay less other equal. Good luck with everything.
