Recently retired - am single/age 55 and considering apartment hunting/condo renting on Gulf Beaches. Some areas - Brandenton, St Petesburg, Clearwater Beach, Indian Rocks, Largo (maybe Tampa but more towwards bay or ocean)

What areas should I avoid and/or which areas are nice (safe/low crime etc.) and easy to get to beaches

I have the apartment guide book and so many area listed

Would like to stay maximum range of in $700-800 average range with swimming pool (fitness room/club would be a plus)

Will be visiting area for couple of weeks so any advice as to area/apartments/condo renting greatly appreciated

1. Re: Renting

Not sure you are going to get something for $700-$800 a month that is real close to the beaches.

For safe/low crime areas you can have a look at one of our local TV stations website. It tracks crime by county then by areas within the county.
