My family lived in Brandon, Florida for about five years. I truly enjoyed living there. There was so much to do and so many attractions to see in Brandon and in the surrounding areas. Brandon has the beach and a lot of great nearby attractions. If you are someone who likes to shop and love to find great bargains, you should check out Brandon Town Center. People come from all over just to experience shopping at the town center.
I used to really enjoy attending the Brandon Hot Balloon Festival. People from all over the United States gather at the festival and you are able to check out all of the really cool looking high air balloons. The really cool thing about the city of Brandon, Florida is that Tampa is just minutes away, this is pretty cool because if you just want to experience a good time in a city that is not really as big as some other well-known cities in Florida, then Brandon is the place to be. If you want to experience that big city living, then you can head on over to Tampa. The people of Brandon are very friendly, so don't be afraid to speak to strangers, they are always very accommodating.
