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!

I recently moved to the largo area about a month ago. My experience by far in largo is already great! I live walking distance to all the shopping malls and fast food places. my bank is literally down the road from me which is perfect. The traffic here is fair just like any other city, The coummunity and its people are wonderful. Me and my daughter visited largo central park very offten, and may go down to largo mall for ice cream occasionally. we're about 15-20 minutes away from the beaches and movie theaters, and the weather is always great. i can see myself living here for another two or three years.
Parks and recreation areas is where I choose to spend most time. There are walking trails, basketball courts, skate parks, outdoor gym, etc. Other then that, there is just not much else to do but shop and eat. Many communities nearby are 55+. A short drive to Clearwater Beach, Downtown Tampa, and St. Petersburg. The weather is nice if you like it hot!
