I just got a job in Clearwater/St. Pete (right off of 275 at Ulmerton Rd)and will be moving to a new apartment in June. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for apartments or good areas to look for apartments in the St. Pete/Clearwater/South Tampa area. I'm 24 and single, with no children, so I'm not worried about good schools or anything, just areas to live where I would find other "young professionals." I have friends who live in the New Tampa/Tampa Palms area and also make the occasional commute to Lakeland, so I would like something that would make those visits not too painful as well, but still have a nice commute to work. If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

With your job location, I'd probably go with either South Tampa near the Gandy Bridge (maybe on West Shore?) or just look near work in either Clearwater or Largo. And BTW, there is no painless way to get to New Tampa/Tampa Palms (even if you actually live in New Tampa/Tampa Palms).
