Tampa Bay is too crowded, even out to Thonotosassa and Plant City. I've been looking at property online in Zephyrhills, Dade City and Ridge Manor and not much has been coming up there either.

Webster seems to have land for low prices and lots of space. But how close is the nearest shopping, like Walmart and Publix? Google maps shows a library there.

And, is it less dumpy and crowded then down here?

Yep, that's what we discovered over time. It's gotten particularly bad over the past couple of years. We were up in Z-hills about a month ago. Ugh. We didn't even bother with Dade City or Ridge Manor. We tried
looking in Brooksville, even parts of it were too crowded for us, and we got some interesting info about the sewer infrastructure along Cortez. So we pushed on further north.

Webster is right by Bushnell. 10 minutes. Bushnell has everything you need and is right off of 75. Walmart, Publix, Winn-Dixie, etc.

I agree ^^ I was just going to suggest Bushnell.

What exactly are you looking for, OP? Acreage or just a small town?

I had family in Bushnell, they couldn't get cable TV or internet. Parts of the area are wired but much is not.

DSL is around but they were on a waiting list because they don't have enough circuits in the CO to serve everyone in the area.

Just be aware if that stuff is important to you. They had to get satellite TV and use a cellular hotspot for internet. They just sold their house and moved this past summer after being there a few years.

^+ HW makes a VERY important point. Not only in this area but any area in Florida, even if you think there is no way that hi-speed internet would not be available. It is amazing the things I took for granted.

Yes, that's one of the first things we checked when we decided to move: was there stable phone and internet. Very important to anyone who works from home and needs these things.

Yep. Be very careful. My family got screwed over. Previous owners of the home had Century Link DSL and the agreement was they were going to keep the service active and on the day of settlement transfer it over and change the name on the account. Nope, they decided to just call Century Link and cancel the day before, so the circuit went to the next person who was on the waiting list.
