We visited Ft Myers last December and loved it. But I'm an ICU RN and I think my job opportunites would be better in Tampa. We have a trip planned to visit Tampa in a few months.

I would like to find a community with lots of younger children since our son is 7. And I would prefer a commute no more than 30 to 40 minutes. We saw a wonderful gated community in Ft Myers. Looking to rent at first and then buy a 3 bedroom home. Just want the community to have a pool and a hot tub. Basketball, tennis, volleyball and biking trails would be nice too but are not a deal breaker.

I'm going to apply to the VA hospital in Tampa and probably work at another local hospital until I can get a job at the VA. Can anyone make neighborhood, community recommendations? We love the beach and would love to live within a 25 minute drive. I also understand Tampa has Bush gardens and lots of stuff to do within an hour's drive. It sounds like a wonderful place to live!!
