Hi, me and my husband are moving to Tampa this summer (tentatively in August) with our 4 kids ages 9, 5, 4, and 8 months. We don't know anyone there and will be moving on our own. We have never been to Florida and visiting isn't an option at this point due to lack of money. I have a section 8 housing certificate, and really need some help on what part of Tampa to move to, and how to look for an apartment that accepts section 8. I want a part of Tampa that has good Elementary schools, and isn't primarily homeowners, since I am renting and not buying. I don't want too rich or too poor. Unfortunately if I don't have a place to stay then I may have to camp for 4-6 weeks. I am coming from MASS

If I were you I would focus on the suburbs of Tampa. You can find cheaper apartments and the schools are generally better. I would specifically look at the Brandon/Riverview area. For a suburb, there is a lot of diversity in ethnicities and incomes and it is not your typical boring suburb.
