Lutz Florida

Lutz Florida is located just 25 minutes north of Tampa and is one of the best suburbs with a long history and top-rated schools. Living in Lutz FL you will find the perfect mix of master planned communities and country living

 

The once very rural community was known for the sawmill and a train depot in the early 1900’s. Lutz continued to grow and an authorized post office was established. Eventually expansion was necessary and the railroad junction was demolished in the 1960’s. Today you can see a replica of the depot and visit the art gallery that now occupies the original post office building.  

 

Fast forward to the current day and you can still enjoy parks or numerous biking trails along with a few equestrian trails. According to Niche.com, Lutz Fl has a population of approximately 23,000 residents and is made up of mostly families and retirees. A contributing factor may be the high safety of the communities and the A- rated schools.
