About Our Area

Just a short drive from Tampa, Hernando County provides easy access to the benefits of a major metropolitan area, while offering the calmer pace of suburbia.


In 2015, Money magazine ranked Tampa “’the best large city in the Southeast and one of five ‘urban gems’ across the United States offering an abundance of culture and amenities at ‘livable prices’” (Source: Tampa Bay Times).

Tampa is home to three professional sports teams; large shopping malls and eclectic shopping districts; the award-winning Tampa Museum of Art and Straz Center for the Performing Arts; Busch Gardens and Adventure Island; and neighbors some of Florida’s most beautiful gulf-coast beaches. Hernando County is also less than a two-hour drive from Walt Disney World and the many other attractions located in Orlando, Fla.


Hernando County’s proximity to the Suncoast Parkway (a toll-road into Tampa) and low cost of living has attracted many young families to the area. In the past decade, the county has experienced tremendous growth in its retail offerings. From most locations in our county, major grocery, department and retail stores, as well as a variety of restaurants are only minutes away.
