"Really nice place to live"


Really nice place to live - 11/18/2009

Maryann
Largo, FL

Have lived here for 30 years, originally from Ohio. Weather conditions and cost of escalating living costs were two of the reasons we moved here.

Florida has been very good to us as a family and Largo is a well maintained city, with many good reasons to stay here. Transportation is good, shopping is wonderful, schools continue to improve, good driving conditions in most areas and continuous road improvement. Taxes are low compared to many other states and weather is good most of the time.
However, I need to sell my home and downsize since I am growing older, plus I want to travel a bit more before I settle down again in one place.

Anyone interested in moving here would not be disappointed, Largo is a great place to live.

hellhole - 4/10/2013

this place makes me want to vomit. I had the misfortune of working in largo while living close by. the majority of the people are mean and lazy. its in florida but it is an industrial town. the city hall is filled with questionable characters youd think were kicked out of hollywood for being idiotic rejects, but its actually mostly ex-military carrying out defective psy-ops on their neighbors. all the nice people are depressed and all the mean people are angry. you will see depressed people first, then you will see the psy-ops carried out by generally incompetant people. zombies. Largo Florida is psychoville and its population is shrinking. If you are a bitter senior citizen looking to harass people all day without repercussions - this is place for you. If you are young and looking for a place to live safely in peace - stay away from this place. do not, I repeat, DO NOT look to this place as a location to raise children. in fact I would stay away from Largo Florida under all circumstances. unless you are constantly armed with a weapon and/or a lawyer for defense on a daily basis and enjoy struggling with absolute foolishness. I will never, EVER return to this place, and im sorry i was tricked into ever visting Largo Florida at all.

What He Said, And More! - 9/7/2012

That's what I always say when I'm out and about: "Pass down a cold one!" If you say that to a Largoan, then you're gonna get a cold beer, or whatever cold thing they have in their pocket. Sometimes when it's hot out, they hand you something warm, but then you just take it home and put it in the fridge, and then when it's cold, you look in a mirror and say "Pass down a cold one!" and you hand it to yourself. Anyway, if you do that, and also practice the tactics that Robert talks about, you'll be made in shade. Lotsa people come down here and think that Largo is where all the lost cargo gets sent, but that's Lcargo, and I don't even know where that is. It's probably near Chicago, and that's up by Georgia so you know we don't care about that. If I worked on a ship I would tell people to stay away from Chicago, they're too happy up there. But in Largo it's almost like real life when you're driving around and meeting all the people with your eyes. I would never talk to any of the people here, but maybe that's just me.

moving to Largo, Florida - 7/6/2011

I've been coming to Largo since the 80's when my Mom moved here from New England. I've since moved here in 2008. It's centrally located to every thing. The beaches, sport events, arts. There is never a shortage of things to do. Don't worry about finding doctors, medical support either. You can live in apts. mobile homes, or buy a average size house for around 100's. The summers are intense hot, I won't lie about that. But the winters in New England were intense too. If you have the ability to try it move here just for the winter months. No problem in finding rentals. I hope I helped you.

Housing has gone too far - 9/6/2007

The housing cost have finally gone to far and it is not possible to even give away your home or condo in this area. The outrageous cost of houses and condos added with crazy insurance prices and real estate taxes that are out of control make for an inhospitable housing market.

general opinion - 7/5/2007

I've lived in Largo for 3 yrs. moving here from New England. As with all of Florida, things are very costly...you've got to be a Doctor, Lawyer, Indian Chief or a dope dealer to afford your own home anymore! Finding a virgin in a strip club is easier than getting homeowners insurance and taxes will get you to seriously think about bank robbery as a means to pay them. We are told jobs are abundant.... if you want to mow lawns or talk on the phone all day selling. I travel all over Pinellas County daily, (I'm a school bus driver) and let me tell you that jungle combat is not as scary as driving in our traffic especialy when the deadly snow bird migrates in every winter! But, I must say this to all.....the sun shines every day, E V E R Y D A Y and that makes living here worth it. The best beaches in the world are just down the street and there are fine restaurants and shopping and watery, outdorsy thing to do!!!! If you have money, this is the place to be because life can be grand for you here. If you don't have much than stay away but know this: you can still do okay here on a two person income if you employ the tactics of frugality and a little monitary self restrain. Only time will tell if all of Florida winds up as a two class (rich-poor & no one in between) state but untill then sit in the shade & pass down a cold one!

not a bad place to live - 5/25/2007

Largo is a nice kept city by the beach and between clearwater and st pete, commuting to tampa forget it with the traffic. this area is also getting more expensive , jobs market is low paying even the large companys like first advantage and tech data pay nothing for the increasing cost of living and lots of telemarketing jobs here, real big in telemarketing, debt management and outbound sales, traffic is the typical florida city traffic patterns, tough at rush hour and a lot of older drivers. Not to bad here if you got money here , if not like most places in florida u wont make it.

very nice city - 3/28/2007

most of largo about 80 percent is a very nice modern florida tropical type city, the other 20 percent is the run down ghetto and trailer park type, jobs really dont pay much in the area, but if u get into one of the big companys in the area like franklin templeton or tech data you could be set. The nicest section of largo is the indian rocks section it is a mile from the beach, lots of places to eat and things to do.
