I have been offered a job at one of the hospitals in New Port Richey Fl. and was looking for some information on renting a home in a nice neighborhood. I have read some posts about NPR and about the gangs and the bad stuff, but when I was there for a couple of days I did not notice this. I do not have to live in NPR but would like to be at least a 20-30 min drive to work. We have a 6 year old in 1st grade so elementary schools are a factor. I would not even mind living in Tampa and commuting if it would not take over half an hour. We like having a Wal-mart, movie theatre and mall close by and for shopping and things to take the little one out. Any info. would be greatly appreciated.

Palm Harbor, Eastlake, Tarpon Springs, and Trinity are within easy driving distance to NPR.
I know Palm Harbor and Eastlake schools are rated high, but I'm not familiar with the schools in Tarpon or Trinity.

I'd say that either Foxwood or Thousand Oaks would suit you. Veterans Village is cheap but rather run down. Too many of the neighborhoods in Holiday are undesireable.

You really don't have to go all that far. If you can afford it and want upscale HoA places Trinity and any of the developments on East Lake Road will work. There are also nice places in NPR itself, especially along the river.

There are some crummy areas, but you'd be able to tell right away. But gangs? Don't think so.

What's your monthly housing budget? If it's in the right range, I think you should Look at Longleaf in NPR. Great neighborhood and school system in a traditional setting.
