November 6, 2019


– Hi everybody. Today, we’re gonna be talking about, our favorite top 10 things
to do in Land O’ Lakes. Which is a little tiny
town just north of Tampa, in the Tampa bay area. (upbeat music) – Hi, I’m Tim Carroll,
this is Lisa Carroll. We’re with Team TLC and Mihara Associates. We are realtors here
in the Tampa Bay area. – Welcome to our channel. This channel is for all things related to real estate in the Tampa Bay area. So if you are interested in
learning about real estate here, please like and subscribe to our channel. We will be providing
content for you weekly. One of our very favorite things to do here in Land O’ Lakes is observe nature. We’re up in the upper part
of the county, above Tampa and we have a lot of deer, wildlife, lots of shore birds,
owls, tons of wildlife. – A lot of Sandhill cranes. – Yes, Tim and I love
observing nature up here, and there’s lots of space to do that. – The second thing I love
most about Land O’ Lakes, is unlike a lot of Tampa,
when I get up in the morning and go out the door, get in my car, I don’t hit any traffic at all. I’d have to wait at least
15 minutes, before I get into any kind of traffic
from where I live. – Number three. The third thing that we really
like about Land O’ Lakes, which is where we choose to live as well, is that we’re 15 minutes maximum from major shopping and restaurants. Didn’t happen until the last year or so, but now, you can get to probably 15 major restaurants, we have outlet malls and regular shopping malls
all within 15 minutes, so that’s really awesome. – Another thing about Land
O’ lakes, number four. We have a lot of community events. We have a Fall Festival,
there’s always things going on, for every time of the year. – The Haunted House.
– The Haunted House. – It’s cool. – Atlanta Lake’s right here,
in Wilderness Lake Preserve, there’s a haunted house. There’s haunted houses everywhere, but that’s just the hol– During Christmas there’s a
lot of things going on, too. So it’s a great place for festivals. There’s an October Fest. Then there’s a Summer Fest. – Art Festivals. – There’s art festivals here too, so it’s a great place to have fun and go to a really outdoor festival. – So number five, kind
of like number three, but it’s a little different, because right here in Land
O Lakes, really close– – Not 15 minutes away. – Not 15 minutes away, but
right here in Land O Lakes, we have a very unique
restaurants and shops. One of a kinds,
mom-and-pops, individually, independently owned and
they’re on the lake. They have really cool atmospheres,
they’re just different. – Live music too. – Live music, lots of unique
little stores where you can go shopping and find really
unique gifts, we love that. – Yes indeed, we do. Number six, nature
preserves and hiking trails and biking trails are all
over the Land O Lake’s area. There’s one called The Cody
Preserve that’s north of here, that has the largest Cyprus
tree left in the county. It’s an ancient Cyprus,
did not get cut down in the late 1900s, beautiful tree, one of a kind, right here in Land O Lakes. – Number seven. We love the long quiet winding roads, through the countryside. You get a lot of
motorcycle riders out here, doing the roads, because
they’re so beautiful. Especially this time of year in the Fall, which it is right now. And the winter here in Florida,
it’s absolutely gorgeous. But you’ll just see
beautiful rolling hills and winding roads, it’s
absolutely gorgeous. – Number eight is the
Land O’ Lakes High School. It is an A rated school,
one of the top rated schools in Florida, in the country. A lot of people just move into this town, just so their kids can go
to Land O’ Lake High School. It’s a wonderful school, they
have a lot of great events. It’s also a beautiful school, they’re still building parts of it. And again, A rated, one of the best. – Number nine, our number
nine favorite thing about Land O’ Lakes, in no
particular order, is that we have what’s called Master
Planned Communities, here. And that means within the community, we have beautiful resort
style amenities like pools, Olympic lap pools, hot
tubs that fit 12 people, fire pits, docks on lakes
with boats that you can get and take them out, tennis,
basketball, volleyball, Everything!
– [Tim] Nature centers. – [Lisa] The work out
facilities, everything. Even movie theaters. – [Tim] Pool tables. – [Lisa] So, these are called
Master Planned Communities, and we have a lot of those
here in Land O’ Lakes, because of all the new construction. So it’s been a wave of
the future basically and because Land O’
Lakes has been built up most, more recently, we
have many communities that offer these kind of facilities. – And if you’re a resident, you get to use everything for free. And number 10, and in no particular order, as Lisa said earlier,
a laid back lifestyle. If you are the kind of
person that wants to be in the middle of the hub-bub, Land O’ Lakes is probably
not the town for you. ‘Cause Land O’ Lakes
is where you can have, some privacy in your
life, go out in your yard, smell the air, and not see your neighbors right on top of you. – Or if you work in
Tampa and you wanna live a little bit outside of
Tampa, you can just drive 15 minutes and be here in Land O’ Lakes and still work in Tampa. – And feel like you’re
living in the country and that’s what we mean
by laid back lifestyle. – If you enjoyed today’s video, or if you’re considering
