Favorite Grocery Store:
Publix is just up the road.
Favorite Restaurant:

There are many places to dine at just minutes away. We like Vallarta’s Mexican Resturant on Busch and 56th street. On Mondays and Tuesdays they have $1.00 taco nights so cheap and easy for dinner. Also they have excellent Margaritas!!

As for takeout if you like Chinese food Osmay house has great dinner combination and their wings are the best around we have found believe it or not.

What I Love About the Area:

Quite and out of the city just enough to be away from all the people and traffic but close enough to have access to everything. Neighborhood is safe and for of sheriff and police officers. Neighbors like to walk and ride bikes in the morning and evenings. Produce stand and convenient store is close by less than 5 mins away in case you every need something.

Also around the entire backside of the neighborhood is 1000's of acres of swift Mud land (SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT; ) that is set for non development at any time. This land is open to the public and the land runs from the bypass canal to Hillsbrorugh River State Park. It is primary used for hiking, Biking, and horse back riding.

Bike riding, Hiking / Walking is all close by just a 4mins north on 301 hwy just park at sargents park and you will ahave free access to the Old Fort King Trail which is a 13.2 mile. The Old Fort King Trail is a 9 mile out and back trail located near hillsborough River State Park. The trail is split up amongst a 2 mile paved portion and 8 mile rough terrain portion. there is also a off road trail that runs along the paved portion for horses. See link below.


Fishing, Kayaking /Canoeing is also close by also at John B Sargents park.
Fishing can be done from the bank or from the docks here at this small quiet park. 

The Canoe Outpost is here and canoe and Kayak rentals are availible daily for a small fee or bring your Canoe or Kayak and put in here and have them bring you back to your via their bus.
