    Default Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    My wife and I are heavily considering a move to FL in the near future. We're pretty heavily leaning towards Orlando or Tampa. I'm a regular business traveller and would love an easy access business airport. I've heard that business travellers drive from MCO to TPA but am unsure of the veracity of that statement. We'd also like to be able to have non diving fun(like cycling, general outdoors events, etc). Tampa has a downside as someone who I'd like to avoid living within an hour of lives just north of Tampa. Orlando has no such negative.

    So tell me, local floridians, which would you pick?

    Jacksonville. Great international airport and closer to cave country.

    I travel out of JAX, MCO, TPA or GNV depending on flights... its a nice mix for my weekly routine. Orlando is the worst place on Earth, I like Jacksonville's airport but not a fan of the city. Flew out of TPA for a few years and like the area and the airport.

    Who pissed you off enough to keep a 1 hour radius from? Cave Country is a drama free zone, don't bring that sh*t here.......

    When I moved back to Florida five years ago I ended up in Panama City Beach. It wasn't my first choice, but it was my new wife's choice.

    I now hope to live the rest of my life here.

    I live in St Pete, just outside of tampa. I wouldn't live in tampa just because I like the more laid back feel of st Pete and I have access to a lot of the water sports I enjoy. I would never ever live in Orlando. It's a pain in the ass to do anything or get anywhere. Orlando feels like a plastic city with a personality I don't like.

    Maybe you should look this side of tampa.

    As for airports both are great and it really depends on where you need to fly. We use both. Tampa is a great highly rated airport and easier to deal with than Orlando.
