Hello all,
I'm starting yet another thread regarding what parts of tampa are good. I'll most likely be working downtown and have a son in pre-school. I see a lot of mentions about south Tampa being a good area in general. Is it loud though being around the airport and air base?

What other pockets of tampa are good?

We're willing to look at suburbs and have done a lot of research on Brandon.

Any help would be great! We are coming from Chicago - we are sick of the winter weather.

I live in South Tampa, also work in downtown and also have a son in preschool. We love South Tampa. Most neighborhoods in S Tampa are not close enought to MacDill to hear any activity - same goes for TIA. Noise is not a problem for us.

Unless you live right next to MacDill you won't be bothered by noise. TIA flight pattern is over the bay.

If you are looking for other areas, I would suggest checking out this section of Temple Terrace:

33617 - Nice

You can park your car at the Riverhills Park and walk around the neighborhood. It's pretty nice. Quiet. Matured. You will see classic (old) houses sitting next to $500k+ homes. Plus, there's lots of mature trees, so it's quite enjoyable to have some shade or hear the leaves rustling.

Thanks rtjr. Any advice on street boundaries to stay within for a good area in south tampa?

Depending on what your budget.. South of Kennedy from Westshore to Bayshore to Gandy Blvd.. is the better area called NOG by folks here.

South of Gandy (SOG) has some areas that are not as nice and run down.

Are you looking to rent a house or apt?

Default Brandon

South Tampa is very nice though I lived in Brandon and Valrico for about 15 years and really enjoyed it. It's a great area to raise children and is close to shopping, movies, I-75 and Lee Roy Selmon's Highway. It's an easy commute to downtown Tampa and the home prices are less expensive than South Tampa.
