"City of Pure Water"
Known as the “City of Pure Water” and the “Friendly City,” semi-rural Zephyrhills offers the vistas of hills and gentle breezes off the Gulf of Mexico from its vantage point northeast of Tampa in the southeast Corner of Pasco County.
Just 35 miles from the city of Tampa yet still distant from the hustle and bustle, Zephyrhills is known for its small-town atmosphere. Quiet parks and a historic downtown invite you along with community events, shopping opportunities and recreational activities. Once known primarily as a retirement town, Zephyrhills is flourishing with young families and new construction of single-family homes.
Zephyrhills Spring Water Company (which bottles and sells pure spring water drawn from seven wells around the world) has put the city on the map for those who’ve not been exposed to the area’s winter warmth. Others have come to know Zephyrhills through its year-round excellent skydiving facilities.
Through responsible government, concerted civic planning, a friendly and safe atmosphere, warm climate and the ready access to plentiful restaurants and other shopping opportunities — Zephyrhills welcomes new and old alike to savor its charms.
