Hi everyone,

I'm new to this site so I apologize if I broke any posting rules that some boards have in place. I'm currently in NY and have the opportunity to relocate to work in St Petersburg (address to a hotel near the comany is 950 Lake Carillion Dr, zip 33716). I've heard so many things to do/not to do about where to live.....from traffic, neighborhoods, etc, that I'm just lost on what/where to potentially live.

I really want to avoid traffic if i can, but don't want to miss out on living in a great area either. So I would say a commute of no more than 30 mins, with traffic, would be ok. I'm a single male in my early 30's with no kids. I'd prefer an area with some culture and things to do......like walking/biking to cafes, restaurants, etc. If anyone has been to upstate NY, a very similar place would be downtown Saratoga. Also, I wouldn't be against living near/on the beach either....as long as there's some younger adults in the area.

I've heard everything from Tampa (hyde park, ibor, etc).....to downtown st pete's.....to places like treasure island.....to clearwater..........

Please help! this is going to go along way in deciding if I make the move or not.

Your responses and time spent reading this are GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!

Thank you!

Without a budget, I can say Downtown St Pete is probably 20 min away, would check in all those boxes. I would consider Feather Sound just because is 3 min away from your work but most amenities there revolve around the office lunch/happy hour crowd.

One bedroom should be fine at that range for either place. downtown St Pete sounds like it could work for you, it doesnt have the college town atmosphere or quaintness of the NY's capital region, but there is plenty stuff to do.
