My boyfriend and I are planning to move to Tampa or St. Petersburg from Indianapolis at the beginning of 2012, after I take my nursing board exam. We're tired of winters, and moving just after graduation seems like the perfect time for a new start somewhere warmer. We are looking for an area in either city that would be appropriate for young adults. We are both 24 years old and recent graduates. I am concerned about the following:

--I will be a nurse, and am entirely unfamiliar with the area hospitals. Which ones are public/county and which are private? Which hospital would you go to, as an adult or parent? I am not concerned about the commute (I am used to commuting >2hrs/day).
--We would like to live in an area/neighborhood/suburb that has more young couples than older (we love Sarasota, but the average population is much older there), and that facilitates walking or biking. We have lived in Bloomington, IN for several years, and it is a big walking and biking community. We do own cars, but enjoy the outdoors (especially now that we'll be able to appreciate warm weather year-round!).
--We are looking to rent, at least for a couple years, and we would prefer our monthly rent budget for a 2 bedroom not to exceed $1200/1400 (this does not include additional utility/etc. costs). We are not particular about whether the rental is a house/apartment/condo, as long as the neighborhood is safe and the landlord accessible, of course.

I appreciate all advice! If you can think of anything else I need to know about moving to the area, I'd love to hear that too!

Hey I'm in the same exact position! After I get my nursing license me and the boyfriend are looking to move to Tampa! We are both 24 as well. Even though I know this post is a few years old. Did you make the move? Where to? Any suggestions?!
