Located 30 miles northeast of Tampa, Zephyrhills is a smaller community known for its water, skydiving, and popular downtown Main Street district. The city gets its "Pure Water" nickname from the natural spring water within the city. Along with its amazing water, the city also sits among lush countryside that has become incredibly popular with skydiving enthusiasts as great "drop" zones. With its semi-rural geography, the city is also known for its cattle ranches and citrus farms. Residents have access to a number of local amenities, and with a low cost of living, Zephyrhills is a popular area for easy Florida living.
There are a number of public parks throughout the city, and paired with the many community events and annual festivals (Founders Day, Celtic Festival and many more), Zephyrhills has no shortage of community involvement. The city's charming downtown historic district has been revitalized and become a mainstay of the city, offering shopping, dining and other popular amenities to locals and tourists alike. For those interested in history, the Historic Depot Museum and World War II Barracks Museum provide a departure from modern times. With the median home value lower than Florida's average, Zephyrhills real estate is available to buyers with a variety of budgets. If you're on the hunt for a great community that offers ample amenities, affordable real estate, and all that's needed for a high quality of life, Zephyrhills is a great choice.
