My wife and I are planning on moving from Wesley Chapel to Tampa to buy a house. Our budget is pretty limited. I'm interested in learning about East Seminole Heights.

I've found a few threads here saying west of 22nd and east of Nebraska and then south of Sligh and North of Hillsborough is a decent area.

Is this area safe enough for my wife to walk our dog alone around 7 or 8pm? Generally I have heard, "stay away from anywhere east of 275", (Sulfur Springs area).

Are there any decent neighborhoods east of 275? There seems to be a lot of houses for sale in these neighborhoods.

Thanks for your help.

I think maybe within the boundaries you describe it's not bad. Definitely stay away from Sulphur springs or Southeast Seminole Heights (south of Hillsborough, east of Nebraska) This area is not safe at all, I know because we used to have property there a few years ago - lots of crime and scumbags in the area, my property was broken into 3 times, and lots of problems with prostitutes and car break-ins.

If you can talk to people who live in the area you are looking in, they could give you the straight scoop. There are some nice areas within the boundaries you describe. You might also check into Riverside Heights.

Good luck!

The Sligh/22nd Street area is pretty sketchy. North of Sligh, but south of the river seems pretty nice whenever I drive through there.
