"retirement city.... Zephyrhills" Zephyrhills by davecallahan

This is where my snowbird parents fly to each year.

We have driven down to visit them but only in the narrow window of spring when Rochester,NY isn't buried in snow and Florida isn't too humid. (Late March, Early April). The gated community we visit seems like a chunk of neighborhood from many other states rather than real-estate in Florida. These modular home communities are fairly self-contained and people in them venture out only to dine, to shop for groceries or to find yard-sale bargains.

The town claims 10000 residents but I am not sure whether that includes all the snow birds. I know they have at least 5000 garage/yard sales (or close to it.) and at least that many "antique" stores.

The town has some claim-to-fame for its bottled water but I never did understand why anyone would pay for something that rains down on you for free. But the entrepreneurs in the area will now offer you "flavor-of-the-month" water. P.T.Barnum.... sit up and notice!

The major symbol for Zephyrhills is their water, yet they only hint at it in there city seal and don't even show it in their government emblems.
