Study Reveals America’s Dream Neighborhood - And It Looks a Lot Like FishHawk Ranch
The perfect home is more than just your dream house. Just as important as your number of bedrooms and bathrooms, or the layout of your floor plan, is the community you live in. Recently, ImproveNet ventured to find out what makes the ideal neighborhood, and out of 16 factors that were rated 6 or higher on a scale from 1-10, FishHawk Ranch checks off almost all the boxes. Here’s a deep dive into a few of the factors that Americans rated as most important, and how FishHawk Ranch delivers.
Perhaps surprisingly, the most important thing that people want in their dream neighborhood is a grocery store. FishHawk Ranch has two Publix Super Markets within the community, making it a breeze to do your grocery shopping or visit the in-store pharmacies.
Second on the list is park space. FishHawk Ranch is filled with park spaces large and small. Just one example is Park Square, which has a wide open green space perfect for pick-up games or neighborhood gatherings.
Strong Public School System
Walking or biking to school is the way many FishHawk Ranch kids begin their day. We’re home to six A-rated schools located either in, or within two and a half miles of the community. Newsome High School was recently ranked #3 in all of HIllsborough County. We also have six preschools, ensuring our little ones get off to a bright start. Learn more about our schools here.
Both ranked at 7.3/10 on importance are fine dining and fast casual restaurants. FishHawk Ranch is home to a number of fast casual restaurants including popular chains like Starbucks and Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, as well as local favorites, such as The Scrambled Egg and Cherry’s Bar & Grill. For a fine dining experience, downtown Tampa is just about twenty miles away and hosts a variety of top-notch dining experiences.
Bike Lanes & Paths
Also high up on the list? Bike lanes and paths, which FishHawk Ranch delivers in spades! With over 25 miles of trails, you can walk, run, or bike to your heart’s content.
Lots of Families
FishHawk Ranch is made up of over 6,000 families of all shapes and sizes, while still keeping our small community charm. With so many neighbors, it’s easy to make friends and feel at home.
