Largo is a very diverse city, there are businesses from around the world, people of different ethnicities, etc. The city is rebuilding itself slowly but surely, which is always positive. But some areas are still stuck in their old state rather than rebuilding and cleaning up the area. The community here is strong and we hold many events for the city which is amazing! There are many parks and places to visit, and beaches so close to us it is truly amazing. If you want to stay somewhere remote and close to the city and beach, Largo is the place to be.

IMHO, Largo has an undeserved bad reputation. To say there are no bad areas is disingenuous at best. That said, I have no earthly idea where you will find a city anywhere in Florida or elsewhere that is free from lesser than desired areas. It’s a matter of choosing the right neighborhood. I also think that opinions are formed by wherever you lived previously. I recommend renting a place for 6 months or so and taking time to learn more about the surrounding area before purchasing a home. One last thing about Largo : The city has made incredible changes for the better over the last 10 years or more, resulting in a lovely place to live. New building, new landscaping, excellent city services, and improving all the time. I’m very happy here!
The town Largo consist of many nearby attractions such as grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and many more fun local places to enjoy! Everything is right down the block and a short distance.
