There are many different communities to choose from in the Tampa Bay area. If you want to live in the city, apartments for rent are scattered throughout downtown, but there are other, lesser-known areas that make great places to live as well. New Port Richey, Brooksville and Dunedin are just some examples of cities that lie along the west coast of Florida.
Brooksville is located in Hernando County and it is particularly beautiful. It is conveniently located just 45 minutes north of Tampa and 50 miles west of Orlando. New Port Richey is a residential city with a great downtown area. It is also north of downtown Tampa.
Dunedin has 37,000 residents and it is one of the oldest towns on the west coast of Florida. With a marina and close proximity to both Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island, it makes a great place to live. The shopping is good in Dunedin too, with over 100 independently owned stores, restaurants and boutiques in the area. All of these towns offer renters some great choices in terms of rental property.
