I like the community vibe. I'm close to all the stores and many restaurants. I like the nature and wildlife. I go for walks on the traintracks and the other day I took the dogs to a pond and saw turtles and a large alligator who charged us. I guess he was hungry. I was living right around the corner from where I am now when I had my first child so this area brings back wonderful memories of her when she was a baby and I was a new mom. There is also very accessible bud routes withing walking distance which is import since I travel by bus. There is a super Walmart right down the street which is one stop shopping for almost all of my needs. The public library is awesome and the people working there are very friendly.

I love how commutable every small town is from Oldsmar. The restaurants are great and perfect for any family, couple, and person. Oldsmar gives travelers a welcoming, small town, family feeling.
Centrally located! Oldsmar boasts great weather, fast A+ schools, and has great little leagues (football, baseball, soccer, and even BMX) for the kids.
