I moved to Palm Harbor about two years ago. I enjoy the fact that I am close to Tampa, but the traffic can be very heavy sometimes. Palm Harbor is a safe and family friendly city. I would raise a family here in a heartbeat. East Lake High School and Palm Harbor University are both fantastic schools!

I really love Palm Harbor! I grew up here and enjoy the school system to a great extent! The food options are somewhat healthy, but there is always other options in the suburbs nearby. You can always find healthy food as an athlete living in Palm Harbor.
Palm Harbor is a wonderful place to live! I love the night life, safety, and affordability of where I used to live. The homes were beautiful. Everyone in Palm Harbor was so nice. Their school is wonderful as well.
