Christine, Finding the right lifestyle for your family requires research. Try visiting City-Data.com (Tampa). You will find statistics, neighborhood information and public forums commenting on the area. Watch the date of entry. Comments enter in 2006 may not be relevant in 2013. It is a terrific site for learning about the area quickly.
Like any big city, Tampa is comprised of smaller neighborhoods each with their personal flavor and amenities. Overall, Tampa (like Florida) has mediocre walkability. Cities like New York, San Francisco and DC offer high walkability and metro services. What Tampa does offer is fantastic diversity, incredible access to sports, professional and self directed, water and beaches, sunshine, music and culture. Surprisingly, I have found most Tampanians to be very happy, friendly and helpful. Tampa is a vibrant city with oodles of opportunity.
