Hi there,

I've been reading a lot of the posts, and there is so much great information here! I have learned a lot already. You guys are great.

Short story - We are former Bostonians living in Hollywood, FL looking for a more mellow area to live in. We are a youthful 40, into the arts, punk rock, kayaking, fitness, biking and microbrews. We have visited St. Pete and Sarasota. I'm leaning more towards St. Pete, because it has a larger population and is closer to Tampa. It sort of reminds me of a warm Portland OR.

We hope to move in a year or two.

I work in web design and I'm also a painter (artist). My fiance is in the maritime industry, and is working towards his captains license. We're artsy, happy, DIY types. We like edgy and alternative. We are also very professional.

Can anyone provide names to solid companies in these industries, preferrably St. Pete? My ideal situation is in web design for ecommerce, but I'd consider web in any industry that is cool. My fiance loves to work with boats.

Also, any info on the art scene? I'm aware of Sarasota's strong art scene, but since I'm leaning towards St. Pete, I'm curious about that.

Thanks in advance!
