I moved here from Raleigh NC and it was the best decision of my life. This area offers many different things to many different types of people. Sure, some parts are "dirty" but then again, every city has those areas.

I drove to Chicago in March a number of years ago. Throughout the region, trees were brown, everything was muddy from melting snow, etc. I'm sure the area has its virtues, but relative to that, it was like Eden driving back into Florida at the end of the trip. T-Bay area in general is disappointing for its lack of planning and over-development in the suburbs, but I'll take it (or anywhere else in Florida). Florida population is all from somewhere else, so the culture is still developing. But geographically, beautiful in my book.

well maxim you live in Apollo Beach its basically a swampy exurb with mostly new suburban houses and some trailer parks or other places now and then. Overall excluding the new suburban development its a dirty area and your point of view comes from where you live.

If you live in an exurb or suburb of florida then basically you will say there is no culture and it is a very boring place because thats what those places are in florida. If i hadnt lived in St.Pete before i would think florida sucks. I live in north clearwater/palm harbor is the same a boring suburban area with nothing special about it and Apollo Beach well that must be "great" i drove through it before and yea not a place id live.

btw Hannibal that picuture is excellent!!

I'm going to pretend I didn't read that post...

I think you missed the point completely, actually. And I'm not sure you've been to Apollo Beach. Indeed, lots of swamps and multi-milliondollar trailer parks *rolls eyes*.... not that that is the point. I certainly live in Tampa. I go to school in the city, I work in the city, and I play in the city. I sleep in Apollo Beach. I've lived on the Pinellas Beaches and I've lived in DT St. Pete. I've lived in Bradenton and Sarasota. I've tasted the area. That isn't really the point, though. I'd like to redirect everyone to my original post where they can find my point. :-P

The area is alright - for a month or two out of the here.... the (cultural) drought is the bad part. But to each his own...

I'm biased, but I think you're a highly pretentious 18-year-old. But go ahead and find a more comfortable region of the country for yourself. That's exactly what I did after I got out of high school.

BTW the new Memorial Bridge is an excellent vantage point for pictures, of both the beach and downtown. I recently went over it and was pleasently surprised at the view.
