We were doing well until you mentioned cheap. What is cheap to you? Here are my 3 choices (though there are plenty other nice places for families): Carrollwood, Oldsmar, and Seminole on the Pinellas County side!

Check out Brandon or Riverview, south of downtown and not a real bad commute. If you are looking for an apt do an advanced search on member mquinta. She has listed several good apt complexes in the Brandon area. Riverview you could probably find a house/townhome to rent, just be careful that the home is not in foreclosure.

Oldsmar is a great little area, no really bad areas. Commuting to downtown would be about 45 min to an hour during rush hour. Coming from OKC the traffic may seem normal.

Carrollwood is a great area but not necessarily 'cheap'.

There are also other areas but without knowing your budget, it is hard to recommend a place. What is an acceptable commute time?

What is important to you besides schools?

What area will you be working?

What is an acceptable commute time?
