I recently moved here and love it! There are plenty of things to do, places to eat, and places to shop! Brooksville is a safe and family friendly place to live or even just visit. You should check it out!
Brooksville is a great place to raise a family. You are in between two major cities, Tampa and Orlando(There is always something to do in those two cities). You have so much here, Shopping, Skating, Bowling,Museums,Weeki Wachee Springs Park, Beaches, Croom rd (Lakes, Camping, Mudding, Horse Back Riding, Atv rentals). A Beautiful downtown area, with lots of history. There are always local festivals happening. This area is growing so fast! I wish I would have moved here sooner, Couldn't be happier!
I love the physical and social atmosphere. Great people and great sights to see. There's a mixture of city and shopping mixed with beach and sunshine, and then the open woods and animals.
Brooksville is a quaint town, abounding in Southern charm. It's a great place to grow up and raise a family.
Brooksville is a smaller town but it has some perks. It is more of a country-type town, though more and more suburbs are popping up. Land is beautiful out here. Downtown Brooksville offers lots of older-style buildings (historic district) with coffee shops and various delis and small shops. Good places to eat include the famous Coney Island where Elvis Presley once ate, Florida Cracker Kitchen, and Enchiladas. Many local bars including the Hilltop (saloon style), The Tap Room (more geared towards country folk) and the Marker 48 ( a brewery with its own little outdoor garden area and food trucks). Brooksville has a few parks, all of which are decent and offer sports centers and events for kids. More than anything, you'll find some peace and quiet in this country-like setting filled with rolling fields, beautiful trees, and lots of places to stop for sweet tea.
Country folk that are traditional, kind, and warm hearted The spring lake area is beautiful and feels like home
Small town that has grown tremendously over the last couple of years. Most of the community is family.
Brooksville remains that small town feel, but with ambition to become more. The big box stores are few and mostly towards US 19, yet your niche stores and private businesses make up the majority of the town. Venturing into downtown Brooksville you find the courthouse, library, small restaurants and large family parks. While the country is vast most everything you need is centrally located in this area.
I like Brooksville because it's very homey and quiet. The people here are nice too. The only problem is there's not much to do unless you drive to the next town.
Brooksville is a small town with not much to do or see. The people are usually nice. It has little stores and some good restaurants and cafes.
Very quiet area, country type living, friendly area where you'll be welcomed anywhere you go. It is definitely different from someone who grew up in the city or a typical neighborhood however.
The people are friendly and helpful; the small town is always doing something on the weekends - Blueberry Festival, exercise programs, health programs, etc., the weather is always good here.
Brooksville is a sleepy, suburban area close to many major cities. It maintains a small-town feel while offering an increasing array of amenities including shipping, restaurants and great schools.
Brooksville Florida is a rural town in central Florida. You will not find any nightlife in the party sense. I especially appreciate the quiet and outdoors activities that include: Camping, fishing, horseback riding, four-wheeling and their wilderness parks are generally well maintained. I would love to see more trails implemented within Silver Lake, but overall this town is quiet and is good for people who enjoy the outdoors.
Not much to do here. You can go to Croom Forrest and walk or take the bike trails. There is an old historical museum and the town is cool to see the hanging tree in front of the court house.
This would be a good place to live if you are creative about your income because the jobs in this area are horrible and you will have to drive to the nearest cities for jobs which is at least an hour commute. This is mainly a retirement area or farmer and country living area. If you are lucky enough to find a nice house that you can afford here and you don't mind the distance to the cities then by all means move here because it is awesome. Stay away from the hill and dale area and towards Ridge Manor unless you get yourself a lot of land because the crime is bad in that area for property crimes. Very small town feeling and very good if you like privacy and good weather. The sunshine is nice and so are the occasional heavy rain storms. There is a lot of wildlife and insects out here so pests might be an issue. This is a great spot to raise a family if you can get a nice house. I love Brooksville it's just too hard to make a living there when you live that far from good jobs.
Brooksville, Fl is a small town with a lot of history. Although there are not a lot of things to do in this small town, it is located between to larger cities that are full of activities, Tampa and Orlando. Much closer than that you can find Wiki Wachee, a near by town offering beach access, opportunities to go kayaking or canoeing and nice nature trails .
Its so great to be in a community that is nice and quite. Its nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of a city.
There are some good and bad areas in the area
I feel safe in my apartment.
