Pasco is a decent place to grow up, but it has it's issues like any other city/state. The one thing that truly stood out though was how much the teachers cared about their students. They were actively trying to improve extra-curricular activities as well as classroom involvement. I know that I am grateful.

There are many rumors about Pasco county. Some true and some false. Everyone knows, or should, that home is what you make it. Although we have been noticed nationwide for the drug epidemic happening here, I do believe that the situation is being worked on and corrected, and all of Pasco is constantly being built upon and upgraded making Pasco a nicer place to live and call home.
I moved to Land O Lakes from New York, in 2007 and have lived there since. I've enjoyed my home there and Florida has definitely presented more opportunities my way rather than if I would've stayed in New York. The community is peaceful and family friendly. I'd recommend anyone, especially those who are starting new families.
