Tell me about Tampa Bay? What do you know?

I told the company in Phoenix thanks but no thanks. Now, I've got a job in Tampa Bay that I've interviewed for, past the tech screen and HR wants to talk. What do I need to know about the area? Which ones are nice? Avoid? etc. Looks like you get beachfront property for 1/2 of what it was worth a year ago. Has the area real estate reached bottom yet?

The job would be at a military base in the area on the bay.

Sarasota is close by and is kinda like Overland Park moved to Florida. might consider it. A bit of a drive each day probably 30 miles or so.D

All of those have beautiful scenery around them.

I just spoke to my Dad and it was the Gandy bridge that we fished when I visited.

The Sunshine Skyway is a freaking scary to me. And the stories about the boat sinking and all those people eaten by sharks - wow!

I live just north of Tampa in Spring Hill. If you job is on McDill, your commute is going to be hell, considdering that most nice areas are a good distance away and Tampa traffic SUCKS. They have been trying to clean up the area and have made great strides, but there are still pretty bad areas around the base.
The upside is of course that there are year around outdoor activitys all around the state. If you have $100,000 to spend on housing, you can get a fairly new 3/2/2 home. I hope that helps some, and welcome to florida.

Only problem with moving to FL is your speech is subject to trend toward hick after a few years and you will be asked to surrender 50 IQ points at the border.

*full disclosure: my siser lives in Jacksonville and I visit Ft. Meyers/Miami/Jville 2-3 times a year, love it there.

The unemployment rate in my county is 22%. highest in the state, maybe the country. There are alot of unemployed / underemployed in the area. The housing market is shit and income levels are low (as compared to nationally). My house is worth 1/2 what it was 3 years ago. Alot of people got in over there heads and are now homeless. So to answer your question, we got hit pretty hard.

I dunno, that sounds kinda cool, as long as they can assure you're not in an area where you're gonna get killed. I've never had a job where I was sent anywhere on the company dime, so I'd welcome it as something different.
