I enjoy the area I live in because it's just a little outside of Tampa. There isn't much traffic when I'm travelling home depending on where I'm coming from. The commute I have to take to get to wherever I need to go in either direction isn't an issue for me at all. The area where I live is quiet and friendly. I love my neighbors because any time I'm out of town, they also look after my home and I do the same for them. Overall, I really enjoy this area and for anyone else who decide to live in Lutz, I know they'll enjoy it too!

I have lived in Lutz my entire life which is 16 years. It is a great section that is a part of Tampa. The school systems are some of the best in the county of Hillsborough and I have attended elementary school, middle school and currently attending a high school that are all next to each other which has made the commute and transition to school very easy considering that they are all next to each other. This has allowed me to meet new people that have come to some of the best schools and continue to keep my friends from a young age. The only complaint is how busy the city is growing which has created a lot of traffic. New communities are popping up everywhere which confirms the fact that many people want to move to Lutz and enjoy the beautiful area of Tampa which has much to provide. It it a town that I feel very safe in because fire stations and police stations are short distances away. Lutz also is a very friendly place that has lots of diversity.
I love Lutz because it is a beautiful area with a lot to do. Lutz is very quiet and a place where you can just walk out peacefully and feel safe to do anything. Unlike a lot of places, most of the communities in Lutz are gated which makes it even more of a safe place. I want recommend Lutz to anyone who wants to live in a good area with top notch safety, because it is. I’m very glad I moved and I would choose any other place to live in. Lutz also has golf and country clubs for all golf lovers. The only thing I would like to see change is the way they manage the security gates.
