Zephyrhills, Florida is known as the
“City of Pure Water,” it is the second largest city in rural Pasco
County with about 12,000 folks as year around residents; the numbers
multiply several times during the winter months. With more than 150
senior parks, the snow bird population in this east Pasco County
community is high. In the winter months you sometimes wonder what state
you are in. However, the snow birds are all thankful there is no snow to
shovel and the temperature stays in the 70’s and 80’s.
Zephyrhills is known for its moderate temperatures and cooling breezes (zephyrs). With many parks and open air areas, residents enjoy the warm winter months, golf courses, and activities for all ages. There are many restaurants, local and chains, to choose from in all price ranges. Being close to many of the Florida attractions, makes Zephyrhills attractive to those who want to be close to Disney World (60 miles), Busch Gardens (30 miles) the gulf coast beaches (25 to 40 miles) and the winter home of the Detroit Tigers (25 miles) and the New York Yankees (35 miles).
