Last real hit was 1921, but it can happen any year.

I'm looking at Brandon --which I assume is more of a Tampa suburb/family place and Oldsmar which seems like it has old-school character.

My Tampa knowledge consists of many trips/visits to Dunedin, Clearwater, St. Pete Beach, and nearby places.

Rush hour traffic doesn't intimidate me.
Ewww to Brandon. You can't even compare that to Oldsmar. If you had to choose between one or the other, go with Oldsmar … unless work prohibits you from doing so.

He was a genius, too, might I add. The whole structure of Oldsmar is really interesting. I think they've done a great job attracting good businesses and industry. I believe this keeps the residential taxes relatively low. I grew up off of Race Track Road. Oldsmar was a wonderful place to be, and I feel it is even better today. We had a hard time deciding between it and its sister city, Safety Harbor.

Like somebody else points out here, drive down Shore Drive to the Mobbley park area and go swimming , right here in Oldsmar!!
The area around Oldsmar City Hall is quaint, very Old Florida lifestyle.
The area is rapidly becoming Restaurants Mecca, lots of very nice restaurants with upscale clientele.
The location is perfect, 15 mins to the Airport, 15 mins to the big beach (Honeymoon and Caladesi Park),15 mins to Clearwater. What more can you want?
You can find apartments here, in front of the bay, as well as SFH from several millions to 100,00.
I'm very happy in Oldsmar!!
The restaurants in Oldsmar are fantastic! I love Salt Rock Tavern - yum!
