We love our peninsula home near the gulf. A great place to unplug, great fishing, manatees and birds, and a few favorite local places like Get Hooked. Yes, 19 could be "cleaned up" but you find a strip like that in almost any town. We couldn't find a water front 2nd home near our price range so the concession was Hudson versus somewhere closer to our home. Hudson has decent shopping, a few great local restaurants and theater. 5 stars as a 2nd home. For a primary residence I would have to drop my rating and travel outside of Hudson for beaches, culture etc. It's crazy to have this beautiful water front area and not see it develop? Add a "real" beach or two, move the strip clubs and homeless services off of the main street, attract a nice hotel and a few businesses and clean up the plethora of legal billboards....it wouldn't take a lot to shift things in the right direction!

Its a quiet town, most residents are retired or younger families. Located along the scenic nature coast of Florida, there are plenty of outdoor activities, including visiting the local beach, fishing, scalloping, boating, and beautiful sunsets!
This area is a diamond in the rough. People don't realize what they have here. After moving here from up north I wish I would have done a bit more research, I honestly would have picked somewhere different but I didn't. I hope for the best for the area! The sea ranch neighborhood could be a goldmine if people would clean up and take care of their property. We need leadership in Pasco county government to attract and keep good businesses here. Tear down dilapidated old buildings to show potential for new growth. Get rid of the strip joints on 19. They shouldn't be on a main thoroughfare, so tacky. Hold businesses and property owners accountable for maintaining appearance. Move the area forward. Control the homeless and make them move along. Don't slow them to set up camps.
