Neither! I live in New Tampa (yuck) and am a teacher in South Pasco Co. The traffic is the pits. Everyone takes 275 south. It's 2 lanes being converted to three, but should be 5 on each side. Bruce B Downs is the only other way to go south and its a bottle neck all the time. Too much constructin without proper planning. In LOL you can take Dlae Mabry or 41, but its not much better. I hate this area. Its plain and boring. I should never have moved from Carrolwood. If you are relocating you should check out Carrolwood, North Dale or towards Citrus Park. There is NO easy way to get around here. If you want to live in an area with flavor and don't mind an area being refurbished check out Tampa Heights or Seminole Heights. Once bad areas, but many people are buying the old houses, fixing up the neighborhoods and moving in. I'm moving out of here ASAP. I've been here my whole life and its out of control now. If I decide to stay I would seriously consider South Tampa (problem is it's $$$) or St. Pete.

Probably not the news you want to hear, but should know. Good Luck.

both arears are right next to each other and have many schools being built.
Maybe wesley chapel has a few more, however it is only 10 miles between both places.

As far as schools in South Pasco ( Wesley Chapel, LOL, Oakstead, Trinity) There are now four middle schools that service the area- Long, Weightman, Pine View, and Seven Springs. They are all great schools and lead the district ( even high up in state) in FCAT scores .. ( Long will open next year) The ONLY problem with the schools in that area is they are over capacity. Way over. Two of the three were over double capacity. There will be one new middle schools to open 07-08 near Oakstead. There is 1 high school for south central Pasco- LOL High- A new high school is opening in Wesley Chapel ( Wiregrass) The problem is there are so many new people moving in here the schools can't keep up.

If you like an area with more land and mature trees- consider Lutz on the Hillsborough side.

p.s. I forgot to tell you traffic on SR 54 in Wesley Chapel is a HUGE mess.
