Brooksville Florida is a rural town in central Florida. You will not find any nightlife in the party sense. I especially appreciate the quiet and outdoors activities that include: Camping, fishing, horseback riding, four-wheeling and their wilderness parks are generally well maintained. I would love to see more trails implemented within Silver Lake, but overall this town is quiet and is good for people who enjoy the outdoors.

This would be a good place to live if you are creative about your income because the jobs in this area are horrible and you will have to drive to the nearest cities for jobs which is at least an hour commute. This is mainly a retirement area or farmer and country living area. If you are lucky enough to find a nice house that you can afford here and you don't mind the distance to the cities then by all means move here because it is awesome. Stay away from the hill and dale area and towards Ridge Manor unless you get yourself a lot of land because the crime is bad in that area for property crimes. Very small town feeling and very good if you like privacy and good weather. The sunshine is nice and so are the occasional heavy rain storms. There is a lot of wildlife and insects out here so pests might be an issue. This is a great spot to raise a family if you can get a nice house. I love Brooksville it's just too hard to make a living there when you live that far from good jobs.

Brooksville, Fl is a small town with a lot of history. Although there are not a lot of things to do in this small town, it is located between to larger cities that are full of activities, Tampa and Orlando. Much closer than that you can find Wiki Wachee, a near by town offering beach access, opportunities to go kayaking or canoeing and nice nature trails .
