Before we talk about Pasco Towns and Subdivisions, let’s figure out where it is. Located mid-state on the west coast; think just above Tampa. See the red patch on the map.
What does Pasco County, Florida look Like? Here you go. You can see that we have a lot of waterfront area to the west. And, to the east, farms and ranches. Dade City on the east side of the county is the county seat. Meanwhile, many years ago, the governing fathers decided that since it was such a big county, they would also have government offices on the west side at New Port Richey. Before that change, west coasters had to drive to Dade City to get licenses or tags, or pay taxes.
