City Profile: Brandon

ADD TO FAVORITES
A small town atmosphere that offers easy access to cities, beaches and Central Florida attractions.

Just 12 miles east of the downtown business district of Tampa, Brandon boasts a prosperous small town atmosphere with easy access to the big city. There is plenty to do within the Brandon city limits, but you will also find that you are close to it all with Central Florida attractions, sporting events and Tampa International Airport all nearby.  Tourists would never be at a loss for something to do in Brandon itself, with a spacious 974,000-square-foot mall.

Brandon has come a long way since the late 1850's, when John Brandon and his family came to the area from Mississippi and started it all with 40 acres of land and a secluded dirt road. That land and dirt road eventually became the town of Brandon and the main highway, and the city's growth has only continued to grow in leaps and bounds over the years. If a serene lifestyle in a gracious and friendly setting is your idea of a terrific Florida vacation, then Brandon is the place to be.
