Hi, I was wondering if anyone has an idea of great places to live in Tampa. We're looking for something convenient to the base. We have 1 and 2 year old boys so schools aren't really a priority, maybe a nice pre-k. We just want somewhere safe with a descent commute to the base. I did see a nice gated community online, but I have no idea how nice it really is. I don't know how to accurately describe where it is, so I'm just going to name things I see on Google Maps around it, lol. If anyone knows where I'm talking about opinions would be greatly appreciated. We're open for any advice. Thanks!

The neighborhood is on Courtney Palms Blvd. It's surrounded by these roads: Crosstown expy, Causeway Blvd, S. Falkenburg Rd, and FL-43 N/US-301 N.
East of Clair Mel City.

Sorry if those directions sounded silly!

I would caution you against this area, only because I used to work in it, and I don't think it's the demographic you fit if you're career military.

Go to the BHO and talk to them. They will have plenty of suggestions for you as far as areas to look for housing....

Although it is a little bit farther of a commute (30-45 mins), you might look into Brandon or Riverview. There is a pretty sizable military community out here

Its a bit cheaper than living in Tampa, IMO. We were able to find a 3 (large) bedroom 2k sq foot house for 1300 a month. Neighborhood is fantastic. Area code is 33511 (not far from the area of Bloomingdale and John Moore Rd.)
