Brandon Florida is located just East of Tampa. Many residents commute to Tampa for work and for play. The locals travel to nearby Ybor City or along the Crosstown to Hyde Park for nightlife entertainment. However, Brandon does still have its share of nightlife, bars & clubs, restaurants & events. Most of the restaurants will be found along Route 60 & around the mall, but journey outward and you will find some unique places to eat. Many car dealerships, shopping centers & chain restaurants line the streets especially along Route 60. Take the time to explore off the major roads and enjoy some of the golf courses & other recreation in this Tampa Florida suburb. Although Brandon FL is not technically a city, the commercial & residential regions are developing rapidly throughout the area.
