Default trinity, lol, w.C

Kinda depends on where you are going to work! They are all nice areas! What kind of specifics did you want to know about? I should be able to help I am very familiar with the area.

Email me if you have specific questions. jony_beck@yahoo.com

If you are looking for school info we do have websites w/the school ratings.
http://www.schoolmatch.com/ppsi/schools/s1201530.cfm

There are a lot of good private schools in the Trinity area. The other two cities you would have to commute to tampa for private schooling (which I would not recommend due to the drive time.) My kids start at 7:45 so you would have to leave EARLY.

Hope that helps. you can post or email me if you want specific info on some areas, I just am not sure what exactly your wanting to know. They are all nice places to live, but the commutes may be long.

I've been to Trinity many times as my friend lives there. I really like the place. Be forewarned that Trinity has come to mean a geographical area just outside the city limits of New Port Richey, not just the Trinity developments. The Trinity east development is just starting to build now, Trinity West is almost all built out, but has MANY houses for sale (lot of speculators). Lot size is smaller in Trinity west. You also have the older Foxwood section, and the gated section. Commuting to Tampa isn't bad via 19 or Suncoast, although when they are working on 54, it can take longer. Longleaf was also a nice development, as it combined housing with lite retail. Some people don't like it because it allows accessory apartments, and tries to force the feeling of a small town community.

I think since driving time is not an issue, you would more than likely get more for your money in Wesley chapel/LOL area! Trinity housing prices are higher. I think you will get more for your money in Wesley chapel/LOL! There are some nice housing developments up there.

I live in Pasco and it's a real southern feel the more you go inland. Near the Gulf, it's all New Yorkers/New Jersey/Northeast/Michigan implants for the most part. Closer to the Gulf, the houses run around $300k for a new one. This county is full of retirees and older people. There isn't much to do here for young children or teenagers. There's no high paying jobs around here (you are going to have to commute to Tampa which takes 45 min. to an hour). Lots of funeral homes, there's a hospice, and they are building a new hospital. There are gangs here too so you have to watch out for that. The murder rate is very low but the crime rate is very high (assaults, robbery, etc.). Anyway, if you have any other questions just ask.

We are moving to Pasco county as well in two weeks and have two small children. I researched the areas and decided on Land O' Lakes largely because I liked the demographics better (less minorities - which will ultimately make the schools and area better). No offense intended but some people want "cultural diversity" in their neighborhoods and some don't. After 9 years of living in a highly "diverse" neighbhorhood I am seeking the least diverse I can get! :-)

Default good luck in your move

Good luck w/that REDWINGSFAN! You are moving to one of the most cultural diverse states in the country!

[ (less minorities - which will ultimately make the schools and area better). As for this comment do you not realize out of the 50 states we are like 48 for having the worst schools?

I honestly have never heard of ANYONE moving anywhere close to miami or Tampa w/that in mind. I think you will be highly dissappointed if that is all your decision was based on.

To me trash is trash no matter what the color, I am sure living in Pasco county you will realize this quite quickly!

on a better note, I do think LOL is a nice area to raise a family, It has a starbucks, some good restaurants, a super target close by and soon a mall. Therefore it should be a pleasant place to live.

Default Wesley Chapel

Can't help you much on Trinity, I've driven past it a few times and it is a lot like any other subdivision.

There is a ton of growth in Wesley Chapel and Land O'Lakes. Also plenty of traffic! We have lived in Wesley Chapel since 1995. It is close to I-75 and unlike when we first moved here, there is plenty of shopping (Super Target, Wal-Mart, Bealls, Publix, Marshalls, J.C. Penney and more coming...and restaurants (including NY/NJ style pizza).

The major subdivisions in Wesley Chapel are Meadow Pointe, Seven Oaks, Northwood on the Bruce B. Downs corridor. Quail Hollow (where we live) has large lots, no deed restrictions but a very nice area. Something for everyone whether you like master planned communities or value your freedom!
