Interesting article. Pasco certainly will be a totally different place in the not so distant future.

News like this may help change the opinions of those who insist how the Tampa Bay is the land of low paying jobs and that companies dont want to be here.

Your right Spring but here in NJ it is amazing how many people are talking about moving to Tampa, although I do hear people say well its NOT the East Coast blah blah which we are happy about and welcome the Change..Those who know we lived in Boca can't understand why we are moving to Tampa Area and honestly we are very excited about this move as it will be our forever move LOL....

It sure seems the influx of people from the NE is never ending. I feel that the Fl SE is over saturated and is like exchanging one rat race for another. Welcome back to the peninsular

Nice article. I agree that 54 and 56 will be drastically different in the near future. I have lived right off of 54 for the last two years and the difference just over that time is HUGE. The northern Tampa area really is taking off in a big way, and I believe will continue to as more and more people move south.

John I hope you are right..We are going to be buying in a high market, and spending a little more than we wanted too to get what we like which I did not want to do but it is what it is, so I am just hoping there will be enough Value so in 6 or 7 years we will be able to sell it with a profit as we would eventually want to go into an adult community but at 50 and 48 we are a bit too young lol and honestly not looking for that right now...

I get it!

We came from NY in 2015 to Boca... Then Boca to New Tampa in 2016. Would take Tampa any day. Boca is definitely "Little NY", which is all well and good, but we would much rather make a weekend of it. The slower pace out here is 100% welcome with younger kids. That said, how we miss the beach in Boca!... Crystal clear waters like you would find in St. Kitts, not dipping much below 75 in the "cold of winter"... Sunrises over the Atlantic and waves for great boogie boarding with the kids... I would give anything to have a beach pass for Boca again. And Town Center mall. And do I even have to mention the diners here don't exist... I miss Flakowitz terribly!... Oh, to have good bagel out in Tampa at a neighborhood diner, LOL.

well I have to tell you everything you mentioned we will miss also..lol There were a few things we can do without hence being from NY..We grew up in Brooklyn my husband and I and I guess that is why Boca felt like home...I will miss the food and the beaches and Atlantic Ave etc, however on the other hand the west coast people are nicer our best friends are in land O Lakes and my best friend of 45 years lives 45 min outside of Orlando in Windermere, so we decided to not go back to Boca and to head to the West Coast of course there are other factors as well, we spent quite a bit of time in St Pete when my aunt and uncle lived there they moved to Boca 12 years ago from Tampa....My son's HS best friends are all in Boca they still keep in touch and my son flies down there to see them when he gets the chance, so what is a 3.5 or 4 hour Drive? lol

what made you guys decide to move out of Boca?
