If you ask anyone who lives in Brooksville FL, there is no doubt why they call this quaint town home. It has all the charm of a small Florida city, with many great amenities nearby to make it attractive. Large grocery and department store chains, as well as retail and shopping malls are within a stone’s throw of Brooksville, but these residents don't have to look at busy traffic and the bright lights of the city everyday. Brooksville still has that small town feeling where you know many of your neighbors, children are playing in their yards, and you can run into people you know at the grocery store. It isn't a one horse town by any means, but it is not as large as some of its nearby counterparts such as Tampa, St. Petersburg or even New Port Richey.
You can still find a great family sized home here at an affordable price. While some city’s home prices have skyrocketed to a point that people are leaving the state because they can't afford a home here, Brooksville home prices have steadily increased, but are still within a reasonable price range. Homeowners are able to find property with more upgrades, larger land and beautiful scenery surrounding them. You will see a lot of natural beauty, gorgeous lakefront views, and tree lined streets in this city. Residents enjoy outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing or canoeing in the gorgeous Florida sunshine.
Brooksville is part of Hernando County. This county considers tourism a vital part of the economy. Many wildlife rescues as well as Weeki Wachee and Buccaneer Bay water park call this town home. Weeki Wachee is nicknamed the City of Mermaids because they have an entire exhibit where you can view mermaids swimming below the water. It's truly a magical place to visit.
