If you are looking for someplace that isn't going to be developed in the next 10 years... I don't know. They built this new highway that goes straight from Tampa to Brooksville, so now the developers are putting in new communities along that road, from Tampa up. They haven't gone as far as Brooksville yet but you can see what will be coming Although, until they get that far, it would be a nice quiet place to call home
I mostly agree...except for the part about communties not making it up that far. Hernando Oaks is one, as well as Southern Hills. The later is especially nice. They have also just put in a new Lowe's, Super-Walmart, and Publix. The area is growing.

We spent a couple of days in Brooksville a couple of weeks ago, passing through in our RV. We visited a neat nursery specializing in daylilies anbd bamboo and bought some bamboo for our Okeechobee project. The town's history goes back before the Civil War, and has the potential to be a real boutique town like Mount Dora if they got together and agreed to a unified theme. There are some restored buildings in town, but several that are run down and boarded up. I would call it a town in transition from benign neglect towards attractive quaintness.

The court house in the downtown area has a free wifi web access area in the parking lot outside the records building; we parked there and used our laptop in the RV.

Default considering Brooksville - spring ridge

Hi everyone,
I visited a community in brooksville this afternoon called spring ridge. It is a very new community I think and sounds really nice. Has anyone ever heard of it. The rep said that they were there for about 2 yrs. It is located just off of the suncoast. I am moving from Long Island with my husband and three small children. Can anyone tell me anything about Brooksville at all - like the kind of people that live there, how the schools are, ect... Thanks

Just left the Spring Hill-Brooksville area and I don't see it growing rapidly in the next few years. If anything, it's stagnated and with the recession, even worse. No problem with it losing it's sleepy, rural, country reputation anytime soon.

Totally no culture, book stores, theater etc. If you like horses, wearing no makeup, shopping at Wal-Mart, this is the place for you.

That is not true at all. I read, have plenty of culture, do not own a horse or any farm animals for that matter and absolutely love make-up and I am not the only one.

There are plenty of stores besides Walmart. Insurance is not hard to find, there are plenty of homes for sale and for rent. Jobs is the biggest lacking item in Hernando County. You have to find your nitch here...it's a large area and every corner offers something different. Check the area out for yourself. Feel free to PM me with any questions. Good Luck.

Where's the book store?? I looked high and low but could not find a BAM, Borders or B&N. There was a little used book store w/limited amount of titles and a Christian store that closed at 3 p.m. but no other. Art galleries, museums, fine dining? Other than the Fireside that closed several years ago, nada.
