We have two boys, 2 and 6, I am a pharmacist and my husband is a pilot. We are interested in an area with alot of culture and diversity, and of course a safe area with great schools. I looked up New Tampa schools under great schools.net and it seems that the schools are very good, but not much diversity, any suggestions?

Try West Tampa (lots of Hispanic population) or South Tampa, especially south of Gandy. Lots of diversity down there, from ultra rich to lower middle class, and everything in between. Its close to the military base, so there are lots of asian markets, and a variety of races and ethnic groups there.

Thumbs up Terrace Park

I'm the secretary of the Civic Association and I've lived here for 10 years. It is a wonderful working class neighborhood where you find big and small houses, town homes and apartments. Residents here range from college professors & students to hospital workers and business owners. Since we are centrally located in Tampa, just west of Temple Terrace and south of the University of South Florida, our neighborhood is the most diverse I know in all of Tampa. We have Hispanic, Middle eastern, Italian, Jewish, Black and Asians who all live in our area, mostly because the university is close by as are most of the areas major hospitals (Moffit Cancer Center, UCH, Shrinersl Childrens and the VA). This is an area with moderately priced homes of all sizes and ages. We have an 18 acre City park (Takomah Trail), one of the largest science centers in the southeast (MOSI), Busch Gardens and Adventure Island right in our own neighborhood. The food is the best part, because of the diversity we have independent coffee shops, Mexican, Italian, Asian, Jamacian, Middle Eastern restaurants (& bakeries) all right here. OK, now I'm hungry! Our schools are Pizzo Elementry (on the USF campus), Greco Middle (serves Temple Terrace as well) and King HS (an International Baccalaureate school - my son just graduated with a full scholarship to Univ of Louisville). I hope you check us out. We have, like many other areas in Florida a lot of houses to choose from right now!

Mark, if you don't like diversity, I don't recommend moving to Tampa. Tampa, is and always has been a melting pot of cultures. You might want to go further up into the Panhandle.

Main white areas are Westshore, Westchase, Bayshore, Oldsmar, Channelside, mid-northern end of Carrollwood/Lake Magdaline, Citrus Park, Bayside, Indian Rocks Beach....

Places where you cannot live comfortably living "paycheck to paycheck." There are quite a few places in Tampa where diversity is a non-issue. You will have no problem finding mostly white areas here in Tampa. In my development where I live, there is one non-white family living here. No need to hike up into the Panhandle.
