Brandon Reviews

185 reviews
All Categories
Brandon, a suburb of Tampa, Florida is accessible to Tampa via: Public Transportation, local streets and freeways. It has a small time feel, with Urban city entertainment. Grocery stores, malls, and shopping are centrally located to residents. Neighbors are multi-cultural and friendly! A few Fortune 500 companies have offices in the area. I have contracted with Coca-Cola and Citi-Bank (which is across the street from Chase Bank). Brandon's access to major freeways, leads residents to other major attractions; from Tampa to Orlando with destinations near and far. Key West is a 4 hour drive south and Jacksonville is a 4 hour drive, north.
Review Brandon
I love Brandon, Florida because it is in the metro area between Tampa and Orlando. There is plenty to do such as: Topgolf, Indoor skydiving, plenty of restaurants, water front views, and gorgeous beaches! The only thing that I would change about the area is that there needs to be more things to do late at night. Around ten o'clock is when everything in the area starts to shut down and it would be great to see some late night potential whether it be live music somewhere or even some type of social meet-up.
I love Brandon. There are lots of family places to eat, and it is near the crosstown which is an expressway that is literally 15-20 minutes away from everywhere you want to go in Tampa. Brandon is fulled with all types of people who are striving to make something of themselves. A very productive locations. Be prepared to have a bachelor's degree in order to find good paying jobs.
