    Generally speaking the Brandon area is a suburb of Tampa, so many of the features one would expect to find in a typical suburb are here. The atmosphere is very warm and friendly, from a combination of southern hospitality and the "relaxed" atmosphere people tend to find in Florida. Small business seem to be all the buzz as of lately especially in the hospitality sector so with the small economy booming and friendly demeanor of the residents I'd say that the overall experience for anyone would be a prosperous and welcoming one.

    I was born in my home. I went to public elementary school, private christian for middle school and now private christian for high school. Our neighbors to the right and left of us have been the same since we moved in. We very rarely have Law Enforcement in our neighborhood. But just down the street the neighborhood changes. It doesn't effect us much. This neighbor was very busy with traffic when my parents moved in. My mom petitioned to have speed bumps put in and when they were installed the heavy traffic eased away.Our neighborhood is so caring that when Halloween comes it is the place to come. We even had the local news here one year. Stores and restaurants are pretty much the same. A few restaurants have come and gone but for the most part it has been the same. It is a quite area with an opportunity to drive 30 mins. away to get to the busy area's.

    The level of crime within the Brandon area is thankfully quite low. People tend to look out for one another and although you don't see to many police in the area, they are very quick and professional to respond. In fact, there is a police facility right on the border between Brandon and Tampa which keeps the town a city safe. While no city is completely perfect, crime in the Brandon area ranges from the occasional traffic stop/accident to potential shoplifters at the local mall.
