Founded in 1834, Hillsborough County is located between Pinellas County and Polk County along Florida’s west coastline. Back in the day during Hillsborough County’s initial development, the county was much larger. For instance, Hillsborough used to contain its neighboring counties such as Pinellas, Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee. Today, Hillsborough has estimated population of approximately 1.44 million people and is continually growing with more people each day. In fact, the biggest city in Hillsborough is Tampa and currently serves as the county seat.
Hillsborough County is known for its excellent school system, ranking among the best school districts in the nation. For example, the top performing high schools include H.B. Plant High School, Steinbrenner High School and Strawberry Crest High School. In addition, the county is also home to colleges and research institutions such as University of South Florida, Hillsborough Community College and University of Tampa.
Secondly, the fun never stops in Hillsborough County. Each year the City of Tampa hosts the annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival, which brings in over 300,000 people and more than $22 million. Gasparilla is like a pirate themed Mardi Gras where everyone collects beads and drinks in celebration of a day when the pirates invaded the city for a day to run it.
Not only is there Gasparilla, but Hillsborough County has other major attractions including Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, The Florida Aquarium, Adventure Island and Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park. From a great education to thrilling rides, Hillsborough is a fun community to live in for business professionals, families and anyone else looking for an exceptional place to live.
