I've lived here my whole life and it's growing a lot. It has a mix of small town vibes and city life. There are lots of community activities to participate in.
I enjoy Brooksville because it is a pretty small town where there are little shops and restaurants that you can enjoy while walking around the town.
Overall it's a nice place to live. The neighbors for the most part are not teying to make trouble and stick to themselves. The cost of living is as close to affordable as one would get living in this part of Florida. The workers in the local establishments all appear eager to work and are polite and helpful a far difference from New York, where i grew up. Most teens lived off their parents and didn't know the meaning of work ethic. I've been working since I'm 13 and I know the value of hard work and a good education. The public schools here are good in some ways. First they got rid of common core, that atrocity caused many kids to not graduate in the years of 2013-present in New York. Second, the schools are as drug free as possible, there are security officers posted and a strict no drug policy an attempt to give our youth a better shot at the future. Brooksville Schools also have compassionate teachers who will work with students of all levels, not prioritizing special ed
It's a small town that gives off plenty of homely, southern attitude. Brooksville is not exactly the kind of town that helps science majors thrive, though. Between the farmland and unending retail options, there's isn't much else to do there.
I really like living in Brooksville. There are so many kind people here and I feel welcome just about anywhere. There are many lovely local businesses around and it's a great place to live. It's a great community for anyone looking to raise a family, with cute, homey streets. Downtown Brooksville is especially a gem that we are so blessed to have. There is a rich history in the town, which is really reflected in the downtown area. Though, as it is such a quiet area, it can be too quiet sometimes. If you're looking for something to do at night, it can be difficult to find much of anything.
I have lived in the town of vrooksville for about 7 years now. There are plenty of job opportunities and parks as well as schools for the kids.
I would like to see the racial equality change, and for the little town to come together as one and stop being so divided.
We live in a elderly Christian community, Wesleyan Village, and just love it. We have many friends and fellow christians. The Village has many activities and housing for those wanting to rent or buy. One of the highlights is our Dining Room/Community Center where we have daily lunches and regular music nights.
I live hear and going mudding driving around is fun but some of the taxes are stupid. but overall its a nice experience after living here for 7 years
Brooksville is my hometown. It’s a small town with not much to do but we make it fun! It still has its history which is so interesting to learn more about. In each part of the town, there’s something new to learn. I’ve lived here my whole life & wouldn’t change it.
My time here has been okay! I've met life long friends here and my schooling has not been the best, but Coney Island has great hot dogs! Walmart is full of crazy people here, but the most courtesy employees!
Brooksville has very warm feeling, where as everyone knows everyone. It is a small town that has many restaurants and traditions that you do not want to miss out on.
Great small town with affordable real estate. The river and manatees are amazing. Shopping and parking easy to get to and safe. We could use a community pool and or a splash pad for kids. Also, need a dog park. Very easy to get to Tampa.
This store is always clean and the odors of the deli/bakery area are tempting. The staff is always friendly and helpful. A pleasure to shop here.
Been living here in the springhill/brooksville area for 32 yrs..the 1980's were great..now all the snow birds have moved here. Brought there crime. There are no jobs unless your a sheriff deputy.. Nurse. Or get a job with the county...and even then salaries are stuck in the 1970's...If yout not retired with a nice pension. Do not move here..or you will work 2 jobs to survive...and then you will work your ass off.
The city of brooksville is beautiful and historic. The streets are periodically shut down for events held year round. All events are for every age group.
It's a small and quiet town. It's lovely but an older town for sure. The schools, though few in number, are of high quality and the shops and recreational parks makes sure you have everything you need. The crime rate is low, the city is overall kept clean and the people here are nice and friendly.
