    Macdill AFB Tampa, FL

    Advertisements
    DH orders to Jacksonville got recalled, and they are no longer filling that position :/

    SO now, at 8 months preggers, it looks like we will be catching orders to Macdill.

    Anyone have any tips on rentals? We are from Central, FL ao we are somewhat familiar with the area, but have never lived in Tampa, and would actually prefer to live in Brandon or surrounding areas.

    Thanks

    I'm here, well DH isn't stationed there but I use the base. I personally would prefer Riverview probably to Brandon area. It's not bad here in my opinion and housing is SO affordable with the amount of BAH we receive.

    All you ladies are sooo lucky!!! MacDill is number 2 on our CONUS dream sheet. If we dont get Nellis we are really hoping to get MacDill.

    Good luck with your move!!!

    Riverview is pretty close to Brandon... definitely on that side of town. I live in New Tampa/Wesley Chapel and like it... it's a lot of young families but a little further from base.

    DH can't actually get stationed at MacDill so I don't have to worry about it really long term.

    I live like .5 miles north of MacDill. I have lived in Oldsmar, Town N Country, Brandon and am now in South Tampa. You can PM me if you wish to talk about areas. Brandon is really nice and the crosstown makes it really convenient to commute to MacDill - though it's 6 dollars a day round trip thereabouts to use the toll road - it cuts down the commute drastically. But yeah PM me I've done the commute and stuff and I'd love to help!
