I just accepted a job in downtown St. Pete that starts Dec. 1 (1 week). I have done a ton of research and still have no idea where to move to in the area. I am a young singe male looking for a studio or 1 bedroom apartment for less than $600/month. I'd like to be in a very safe community and stay on the St. Pete side of the Tampa bay area (I don't want to spend all day in my car). The problem is that I have searched 100s of complexes in the area and they all get horrible ratings and reviews. Does anyone have any specific apartment/condo names in the safe part of St. Pete...or Seminole, Clearwater, etc.??? Thank you for your help.

Default Just My Opinion

check out Gulfport....only about 5 miles from downtown St Pete and it really rocks! Small laid back town, funky and artsy....if you like that kind of "feel", you will love it!

If I were younger moving to town somewhere near Eckerd College in St. Pete would makes sense. Also in St. Pete Downtown near WItted Airport is USF St. Pete. Not sure how old you are.

If you are older like me I would look into NE area of St. Pete downtown is awesome as far as renting a room in a large house like a loft or something. Problem is you have to walk the neighborhoods to find places available as they are not alway advertised.

Thanks guys, I'm looking into both the Gulfport and Old NE areas. As of right now, I'm only in St. Pete for 6 months with the possibility of long term after that. So its not a big deal if I don't find the perfect place right away. I researched a lot on both areas and I like them both, especially the laid back style of Gulfport.
