Hi, I am a 25 year old young professional living in the DC area and am needing a change so am looking to move to the Florida area this coming fall. I know nothing of the area so am hopeful to get some rec's on here. I dont have many specifics of what I am looking for. Generally pretty safe, I would love to live somewhere where I can walk to restaurants/bars/shops and not too far from the water (less than 2 hours). Any info about St Pete or any areas in Florida that are good for single young professionals would be great! Thanks!

Go to creativeloafing.com and click urban explorer for info on different areas

If you want walkable and near the beach I would suggest down town st.pete and Dunedin. Walkable but 30 mins away from the beach would be Hyde park.

I also would suggest looking at the USF area it is not walkable due to the lack of sidewalks but everything is right there. Tons of restuarants, some shols and bars. Carlton arms north is on the hillsborough river and there are parks in the area with lakes.
