Valrico is a rural suburb east of Tampa, part of the greater Brandon area. It's located mid-way between Tampa and Plant City, the world's winter strawberry capital and home to the Florida Strawberry Festival. Downtown Plant City also hosts a bustling antique district with great eateries and tea rooms. Valrico is also 20 minutes from the Hard Rock Casino and the Florida State Fairgrounds, where expos, equestrian competitions and other activities are held year round. Drive 20 minutes west to Tampa, and you'll find The Florida Aquarium, the University of Tampa, historic Ybor City, the museums of downtown Tampa, plus the St. Pete Times Forum, which hosts everything from hockey to concerts. Tampa is also home to the University of South Florida, Moffitt Cancer Center and Busch Gardens. Drive another 25 minutes west and you'll find some of the nation's top-rated beaches - the award-winning Ft. DeSoto beach & fishing pier, and historic PassaGrille home to the famous Hurricane restaurant.
