Hi all,

the time is getting closer, when we are moving from Europe to FL (July ). We have previously been looking for a house to rent in the Tampa/Orlando area, but are also looking at apartments in communities such as: The Landings at Boot Ranch West, IMT Boot Ranch, Avana Westchase, West Park Village, etc.

These seems very convenient, and the elementary schools are also good rated (min. 7/10), which is very important for us!

But are these good for the kids and families with kids? I dont want to end up i a place surronded by 60+ y.o. people who gets annoyed by kids playing around. We have zero network in the US, so a place where we could easily get people around us to know, appeals to us.

What are your thoughts on that? Thanks

Are you looking only in the Pinellas area or would you consider Pasco county? Both rentals and new apartments are of an abundance. Easily accessible to the airports, etc and Orlando with the 54 corridor. Have been a residence of the Tampa area for 27 years.

You won't be able to rent in an over 55 community with children, so just avoid those. I think you will find that most of the modern apartment complexes are decent with nice amenities. Stick with areas you already looked at and like, they sound like the right kind of place for a family with children.
