Hi! My husband and I are both Social Studies teachers in upstate NY. We have a 2 year old daughter and 2 beagles. We're looking to relocate to either Tampa or Sarasota, summer of 2011. We've done some research but want to hear from those that actually live there. We'll make sure we have jobs before we move down. We're planning to visit both after at the begining of summer, but in comparison, which area do you recommend for us? Are there more teaching jobs available in the Tampa area vs. Sarasota or vice versa? What about the quality of schools, comparing those 2 areas? I realize coming from NY that are schools are ranked higher, but if you only knew...What about for young families? Activities in Sarasota/Bradenton? Are there specific areas/developments we should visit on our trip?

We also lived in Washington, DC for 10 years, and Charlotte for a few months. We KNOW traffic, as the DC-area is 3rd worst in the country.
