In about 3 years I plan on moving to Florida for various reasons. I will be attending World Cup in Orlando but I don't I will have the oppurtunity to travel around Florida much while I'm down there.

Where is a good place to live with a lot of stuff to do? Away from the bad neighborhoods, etc.

Probably in between the Tampa/Orlando area... Definitely not Daytona Beach...

I would have to say Tampa, CFP isnt too far, Kohn isnt too far, and Orlando is an hour drive max. I have lived here all my life and love it, theres a lot to do around my where I live as well. Good party town around USF as well.

Can I see you're Angel when you come down D.K. ?!



And to Senio, unless you live in little Havana or the Everglades then I have no clue what you're talking about. Miami is the 5th largest city in the country. It's not a 3rd world country.

And to Blue, you don't need to know Spanish to live in FL. It's a myth. Many Cubans speak English anyway so there isn't a problem. If there is then you can just live in Ft. Lauderdale.

I'd guess somewhere around the Tampa/Orlando/Ocala area. Waynes world has some huge scenarios in Ocala.

I say Clearwater. It's a nice little city with beaches and it is not too far away from anything.

forget about Ft Lauderdale and Miami, I grew up down there and I HATED it

Jenn thought she was all about Miami until she spend a couple weekends in Tampa, moved up here and never looked back

Stick to the central'ish area, Orlando, Tampa, Clearwater, St Petersburg.

The best part about alot of these areas, is if you pick a college to live near (USF, UCF, etc), not only is it packed with people around your age, but the cost of living is HELLA cheap compared to other places.

Even though you don't plan on going to the college, when your young and first starting out, moving near a major university is a VERY safe strategy to keep your costs low enough until you get established.

The greater tampa area just has a huge mixture of woods/speedball fields of all florida. Not to mention probably a bigger scene. the Miami area is more like the slums of Cuba/PR. So unless you speak spanish, dont bother.

Pretty much anywhere in the central florida area is good. If you like woods ball waynes-world is pretty good. Other than that there are alot of fields spread out over central florida.

Ok so I pretty much convinced my wife to move to central, Fl the first of the year.

To add to the OP question, What is the job market like in the greater Orlando area? We will likely be moving to Kissimmee as the rent there is pretty affordable. Are there good jobs there? or would I have to commute to Orlando?

Lakeland or Kissimmee will give you good access to all of the many central Fla fields.
