Pasco County Community Overview

Pasco County is the perfect location for growing both your expanding business and your lifestyle. Pasco’s prime location offers accessibility, affordability and room to grow.

We are just 30 miles north of Tampa and about 50 miles west of Orlando, it easy to enjoy all that West Central Florida has to offer. Pasco County is connected to Tampa Bay’s vibrant economy and cultural amenities with easy access to major highways, airports, railway lines and Tampa Bay's deep seaport.

Pasco County is a diverse and rapidly growing mix of communities with unique character, charm and opportunity for growth. Once a bedroom community for the rest of Tampa Bay, Pasco County is emerging as a thriving center for business and commerce. An excellent quality of life and a supportive environment for business and industry has helped Pasco County become one of the top 40 fastest growing counties in the United States. Pasco County is outpacing the rest of the Florida in terms of new employers and employment opportunities and was named a “hot bed” for small business and entrepreneurial growth in the local news.

Pasco County has more than 100 square miles of managed recreational facilities, including parks, four artificial reefs (one made up of surplus military tanks), more than 25 golf courses, and three state-designated canoe trails. The possibilities to enjoy the outdoors and nature are unlimited.
