So I'm trying to move with my bf next year to Fl we are in our 20's looking for a change of pace beacause mass is cold and too fast paced. We like the warm tropical climate of FL and I have family there. We are thinking about these cities as places to move to.. St Pete/Tampa/Clearwater area, Jacksonville, or Daytona. Please don't tell me not to move to Fl because I'm moving I already know about the humidity lol! Can you tell me some pros and cons about these places or suggest another city to look at. I want to be in centeral florida on the coast either east or west doesn't mater. If you can answer my questions that would be great too. Are there safe low cost places in Jacksonville,Daytona and Tampa to live?! Is Clearwater becoming a weathly rich community? Liberal hippyish or Conservative..? Any of these cities racist? Looking for a city with many things to do a fun city, accepting (doesnt have to be liberal) low crime areas and lowish rent. Thanks!!

St. Pete and Tampa are too racist for me. I'd check into Jacksonville as I think the population is a bit younger.

I agree Jacksonville is a good option with plenty to do, a low cost of living and the best job market in the state. The south side is the best in my opinion, check out the Baymeadows and Deerwood areas.

Question 1st Things 1st

Before deciding WHERE to live, are you going to need jobs? Have you looked into that first and which areas of the state that can offer you jobs? Have you researched pay scales from MA vs. FL for the same job? Have you searched C-D for similar stories?

Good Luck!

i am moving to Florida. My parents have a condo in Daytona in which I am staying at when I get down there, and then I'm probably looking towards moving to the Tampa Bay area once I figure things out.

Of the three you named, Daytona Beach is the least urban, so you're looking at alot less traffic. You'll find very low rents here too, but realize your income will most likely be much lower than your'e used to, depending on your profession.

After living for years in the Orlando area, I prefer the laid back ways of Volusia County (Daytona). I like that I can get in my car and drive without sitting on a highway and streets that can double as a parking lot.
