Looking for that perfect Florida Location???

 You've Found It!

Hernando Countyis located approximately 45 miles north of downtown Tampa & 50 miles west of

Orlando; it stretches 37 miles from east to west and 18 miles from north to south.   Hernando County is

part of "The Nature Coast", which truly offers something for everyone. 

This county offers a diversity of lifestyles from suburban Spring Hill to rural Brooksville, from the crystal

clear  rivers, the Weeki Wachee and the Withlacoochee, to the miles of spectacular Gulf frontage, the

serenity of a quiet rural setting, the beauty of scenic hills and woodlands.
