Few areas can boast as much historic natural charm as Valrico. Valrico’s name is Spanish for “Valley of Gold”, and the community was settled by boom-era hopefuls in the 1880′s. To this day, tree-lined streets, still in their original arrangement and unharmed by the area’s growth, take residents and visitors through a beautiful community offering both single-family homes and a few condominiums and townhomes. read more…

For even more great shopping, Brandon Town Center and the Ellenton Outlet Mall are within 30 minutes of Valrico, as is the Tampa International Airport.
Nearby Alafia River and the Gulf of Mexico offer a host of water recreation, from kayaking to surfing, and the dozens of area golf courses are sure to be an avid golfer’s delight.
