Hello!

I've been reading some of the posts online and everyone is so helpful! It seems like St Pete and S. Tampa are the spots to be, but I'm looking for feedback.....

I'm 27 yr old single woman, work for a large company located in Brandon, FL. I do like the nightlife (not too crazy- I did that in college!), theater, arts, etc. Love the beach, love city life in general (I'm coming from Western Mass)..... I am looking to be around single people my age/professionals. I want to be somewhat close by to work (30 min driving), but I don't want to live in suburbia.....I'd like the chance to meet other professionals and single people like me! Is St Pete and Westchase too far? Are there any complexes that anyone would recommend that would be easy driving to Brandon?

Thank you for your help in advance!

I made some good reccomendations in the other thread with the 22 yr old girl moving here. It turned into a giant argument about nightlife, you can check it out if you want. I moved here when I was 26- I moved to brandon and despised it. Move to south Tampa. If you are interested I'll provide some locations based on your budget.

For starters check out Post Hyde Park. The crosstown practically runs through the parking lot, it would have you in brandon in under 10 minutes.

St. Pete and Westchase are each at least double your desired commute to Brandon. (Westchase is suburbia, so I'm not sure why it's on your list in the first place.) South Tampa is your only good option.

I agree living in either one of those places is not for a young single professional working in Brandon. Check out S. Tampa..

Both Westchase and St Pete will be close to 50-minute commutes to Brandon.

South Tampa will have more single people, who are professional and in their 20's and 30's, than other places.
Westchase will also have a lot of people in their 20's and 30's and mostly professionals, but the overwhelming majority of the people in Westchase will be married and with families.

Btw, I am also from Massachusetts and love the Tampa area! You should fit in well here because most of the people I run into who are originally from the New England area, seem to like the Tampa Bay area.

South Tampa is home to young, single professionals and will also have that safe, yet NOT suburban feel. For suburbia, you've got to go to Brandon, Westchase, etc. Which isn't on your wish list so just cross those areas off and go with South Tampa and check out the Hyde Park area for night light, in addition to being decently close to the beaches in Pinellas County/St. Pete/Clearwater. Based on your criteria, you pretty much pegged South Tampa, nowhere really else fits in Tampa proper.

Look into Post Rocky Point. Beautiful complex, straight shot down the Courtney Campbell to Clearwater beach, and a semi cheap cab ride to International Plaza, Channelside or SoHo.


I lived there and I miss it like you wouldn't believe. (Got laid off at PwC and had to move back to NJ...)
