Review of Clearwater, Florida

Tired of Florida
Star Rating - 4/1/2010
I am a native of Tampa, FL, but have been living in Clearwater, on the Bay fotr the past two years. The longer I live here, the less I seem to be able to tolerate the heat. We really only have two seasons here: summer and intermittent summer. That is when it is supposed to be winter, spring or fall by the calandar, but you can find yourself in shorts any time of the year. Most people love that who move here, but having lived here all my life, I am looking for a place with four seasons, a cool winter, full beautiful spring, and a summer that has little humidity. Anyone know of a place like that? I am willing to compromise a little.

Funny - I used to live in Fl for over 22 years...moved for "seasons" are there really "seasons" anywhere anymore lol - anyway, I have lived in Atlanta for a while now and am looking to move back!! If you are looking for "seasons" without such a harsh winter, the A would be perfect! Keep in mind, it's expensive here though. Average, safe neighbor cheapest for a studio $1500-1600 - auto insurance sky high, traffic is a complete nightmare....I'd consider leaving Fl...its really still affordable and you don't realize how you miss the "summer" and "summer" and summer season lol when you don't have it anymore!! Happy hunting.......GREAT areas in the A are: Old 4th Ward (O4W), the highlands, Virginia highlands, midtown, Candler Park, Cabbage Town, Grant Park - stay away from Buckhead (over priced and booshie) -
