I'm a 25 year old male living in Connecticut and am looking to relocate very soon to begin a life in Florida - specifically the Tampa/St Pete area.

I've started looking on craigslist, rent.com, and other sites for apartment listings but there are so many areas that have different things to offer. I'm looking for a place to live that is on the younger side with a nice atmosphere (not necessarily like living in an apt in college all over again but not an older community either). I see some of these complexes with pools and whatnot but really just want to hear of the areas that are good deals (realistically at this age I'm looking for a place b/w $500-$700 for a 1 bedroom) where you can have a decent living space (safe community too), and are relatively close to a lot of the things I'm interested in.

I'm a Marketing guy who will be looking for a job down there. Does Tampa bay have a large amount of professional job opportunity or when doing job searches is it better to include the surrounding towns and cities for better opportunities? With the job market and economy as it is, it's prob going to take some time to find a position so I'll undoubtedly be looking for a job to bridge the gap and pay bills in the mean time.

It seems you're either all pro or completely against the area and I think it's funny how people can be so adamant about leaving where they've always lived to find somewhere better (I am one of them - CT doesnt offer what I'm looking for at this pt in my life and plus I'm hating the cold more and more every year). Tampa appeals to me because it seems like it is a great time to move to a city that is going through growth and will continue to plus it has a great deal of upside in terms of economic opportunity, housing, and social life. I'll be making a visit down there shortly but I wanted to reach out for any initial advice anyone can offer. Thanks

Checkout the downtown St. Pete area and the neighborhoods around there and compare it to anywhere else in Tampa. I think you'll get a good vibe from downtown St. Pete.
