Valrico Community Profile

 Welcome to Valrico!

 

Valrico began as a region of cotton plantations known as Long Pond. The arrival of the Florida Central and Peninsular Railroad in 1890 brought many new immigrants from points north. William G. Tousey, a philosophy professor from Tufts College, gave the community its current name, which is derived from a Spanish phrase meaning “valley of gold”. Valrico is located in Hillsborough County and is close to being in the center of Florida. Small town feel within minutes of the city of Tampa.

If you drive east on State road 60 you will find yourself passing some of the best produce markets. Stop in and grab yourself some strawberry shortcake or a smoothie. You will not regret it!

Valrico is minutes away from Brandon, which has all of one’s entertainment needs such as movie theaters, the Brandon mall, and a plethora of restaurants.
