I am looking to relocate to Florida in the next year. I have been scoping out Dunedin, Clearwater, Tampa, st Petes, vero beach, palm beach). I have family and friends on both east (Tampa) and west (Miami) shores! I am torn as to what is the better fit for me and my husband and most importantly my two doodle dogs. I am mid 40's with my husband, no kids. We are active outdoors, love the beach (prefer to take dogs), foodies (good restaurants), and music/outdoor concerts, entertainment is all important to us. I am visiting in Jan to scope out east and west coast beaches. Would like to be as close to a beach as possible!! House under 250$ would be ideal with a pool. Any input any one has on best locations and affordable beach towns I would appreciate!

Where will you be working, or are you trying to find your location first? I much prefer the Gulf coast to the East coast. I have heard that it is less congested and more laid-back. The sand is whiter and the Gulf is warm, turquoise and calm. My cousin came over from Cocoa Beach to visit me and we went to a fun beach café on Anna Maria Island with music and dancing, and she just raved about it and said they have nothing like it where they are. There are a ton of nature preserves in the area. I'm in Bradenton just off Anna Maria Island, and we still benefit from the Gulf breezes in summer. Most beaches don't take dogs, but there are dog parks and some beaches are dog-friendly.

I think you got your East and West mixed up there, Molly ... lol. The job opportunities might dictate where you live ... in what field of work will you both be looking?
