Downtown St. Pete, Hyde Park/Bayshore, also overlooked here has been downtown Tampa and Channelside. Any one of those areas are amazing if you can pull it off financially.

Sounds like your Talking about Dunedin, Florida here in Tampa Bay, right on the Water. Very cool little town with all locally owned shops, resturants, bars etc and a trail for biking, walking etc .. plus it's own beach, Marina etc. Check it out on the web. A qauint lil village of sorts almost.

I've actually become somehat impressed with Dunedin's downtown, pretty solid for such a small place

im renting in Old NE in St. Pete and love it! much easier to get to the hip places and the crowds are far less pretentious than those in S. Tampa. Don't know why but that crowd is generally comprised of overaged divorcee's and cliched yuppies. The st. pete crowd seems a bit more.. normal I guess. Plus, there are dog parts everywhere. Not to mention the longest stretch of waterfront parks in the nation. There are always community events going on, larger and smaller scale. I know you aren't seeking any negative advice, but you should be warned, the job market in this region is attrocious. So while you may find a reasonably priced home in one of these cuter areas (think high $300's), you will likely have to make quite the commute to get to any jobs.

I appreciate all advice, even negative, as long as it's actually helpful, and not just blind state-bashing.

Dog parks - awesome! We have an Eskie that loves to go play outside.

Thanks again everyone.

I would look all over Pinellas County vs Hillsborough. Look at St. Petersburg, Largo, Clearwater, Pinellas Park or North St. Pete. I was in the same boat as you guys with my husband when we first moved to the Tampa Bay area. Had the time of my life. We are back in Wisconsin right now going back to school. But when we are graduated you can bet we will be back. Don't worry about meeting people and just looking for the young crowd. I am 24 and my husband is 28 our friends range from younger to double our age, rich, poor, and all in between. One thing we loved about Florida and I am sure you will too, people are just friendly. Barely anyone is from Florida so it is so easy to meet people. My friends down there are like my second family. I have spend holidays and everything with them. My best of luck to you and please let me know if I can help at all.

Seminole Heights is a great area for young couples. If you go to realtor.com and type in 33603 zip code you will find some nice historical homes. There are very few new houses in the area, mostly remodels but you will find new ones built to look historical. SH is approx. 30 minutes from St. Pete Beach. It's less than 15 minutes from Tampa International airport and within 10 of the Raymond James Stadium. There are mom and pop shops and resturarnts in the area. SH is so close to Down Town Tampa. Hyde Park is not far from there either and there are a lot of things to do there. I hope this helps.
