My family and I are moving to Tampa in a few weeks and are looking to rent in the Gorrie Elementary school district. We found a place in Hyde Park with 2 beds/2 baths which means our elementary-age daughters would bunk together until we bought a home. But there's also a 3-bed/2-bath condo in Harbour Island which would give us a little more room for somewhat less price and still in the same district.

Basically, I'm torn and wanted some opinions. Which neighborhood is better? Which neighborhood is more kid friendly? I'm pretty familiar with both area as I've visited often in the past year and I simply cannot decide. Any tips would be great.

Hyde Park should be more kid-friendly. Harbour Island has always felt sterile to me. It seems to be geared more toward urban professionals without kids.

I agree with ferret - Hyde Park is much more family-friendly, and has a lot more character and warmth.

Hyde Park is so convenient to everything. Harbour Island is nice but seems "out there".

Yes, and since the only two ways on and off the island are by the Ice Palace and Convention Center, traffic could be an issue during events.
