Is it a nice place to live? People, crime, quality of life, etc.
Thanks very much.

Its OK, mainly centered around busy 19, and the intersection with ALT 19. Mainly older houses built in the 60/70's in open sub divisions. Check out Pasco counties sheriffs website for crime

There are better places in Florida to live. You can do a search for posts on Holiday and you will see what people have said here in the past - most of it not good. And for the record, I would never live there.

Eh, Holiday is just your typical suburban sprawl. Parts of it might even be considered suburban blight. There's probably some petty crime (car break-ins, maybe some small-time drug dealers and wannabe gangbangers), but I'd be more scared of the traffic. Having to use 19 everyday wouldn't be fun.

Unless you are living on the water it's pretty crappy. A bunch of 2 bedroom homes that retirees used to live in that are now occupied by big families.

It's full of small 2bedroom shoebox homes and full of small time drug dealers as is most of west pasco. I would stay well away or live a few miles south. Most all of west pasco is renters.

The best areas to live in Holiday would be right along Baillie's Bluff Rd., and in the newer subdivisions like Key Vista. Otherwise, run away. Holiday is considered the area south of Moog Rd. off US19 and extends east to about Grand Blvd. That whole area is overcrowded, houses on top of each other, and crime is pretty commonplace (as it would be in any other lower-income overcrowded area). Stay away from Holiday Lakes Estates, or anything off alternate US 19....awful. The areas off Mile Stretch and Grand are just as bad. If you were looking at an older home, I'd focus more off Darlington on the west side of US 19, or as far south to the county line as possible.

lets not lie here, Holiday is horrible. A majority of the houses there were winter homes that were passed on when the owners died, now they are owned by thier kids and they don't care. Many look like crap since they are unkept. You couldn't pay me to live there, or pretty much anywhere along US19 from Holiday up to Hudson and Spring Hill. I have worked in those areas over the past 2 years, I have never dealt with so many trashy people in my life.

I doubt they are owned by their kids. Most of the homes used to look great. Very nice landscaping and everything kept up well. My guess would be when they died the kids who lived further north just sold the place.
