If you grew up in Detroit and then moved to Gary this area will seem like Mr. Rogers neighborhood.

Yes, there is a section of Brooksville that you will find drug dealers and there have been some grow houses busted in Spring hill but most areas are nice for the most part.

There is some gang activity in areas of NPR but it is not widespread. There are some problem areas but once again most areas are nice.

Have to agree with Mike on that one. There is limited, very limited, gang activity in hernando county. Yes, there is a section in Brooksville (the ghetto) where drugs on the street are pretty prevalent. Hernando County has an excellent Sheriff's Office that keeps things mostly under control.
