I absolutely love this location! Economically, this area is very affordable and competitive with the surrounding areas.I have lived here since I was two years old and see familiar faces and friends frequently when I am out and about. Clearwater Beach is a 30 minute drive at most, while St. Pete Beach is only a little further out. There are many great elementary, middle and high schools to choose from, both public and private. This location is growing, but not so fast as to over-populate. It is a great place, especially, for a growing family to live. It is relatively close to downtown Tampa and has a lot of great local activities to enjoy. I would choose to live here again in a heartbeat!

Beautifully safe community to raise kids, has wonderful schools but has close to no night life for young adults. Commute to work is perfect 5 minute drive to 275 highway.
The neighborhood is very quiet. Traffic to commute to/from work is not too bad, and neighbors are friendly. Location is great because is close to supermarkets, banks and the mall.
