Holiday Real Estate Information

Home to a population in excess of 22,000 people, the town of Holiday was created in 1966 as part of a marketing promotion by a local bank to develop an area near its branch in the previously deserted area. The advertising campaign, and thousands of hungry property-seekers moved into the town now called Holiday. While the community is largely focused on healthy and happy residential life, there are several businesses and commercial operations based in Holiday. The majority of them work out of Holiday’s three large commercial centers at the Holiday Pacific and Southern Tower, Southeast Personnel Building, and Holiday Tower.

Several neighborhoods are part of Holiday and add to the diversity and complexion of the community. Key Vista, Bailey's Bluff, Holiday Lake Estates, Beacon Square, Forrest Hills, Colonial Hills, and Gulf Trace amongst the larger and more well-known communities.

Anciote High School is currently under construction and when completed will provide Holiday’s students in grades nine through twelve with a convenient education option that is close to home and within walking distance for many. Many honors students look forward to the expanded curriculum that the school will offer. An interesting learning communities network will include elective coursework that fits within certain themes, such as courses in sports, law studies, health sciences, art, journalism, multimedia production, music, dance, business, information technology, networking, culinary arts, engineering, and energy. The Paul R. Smith Middle School, Gulfside Elementary School, and Gulf Trace Elementary School are the other campuses operated as part of the Pasco County Schools in Holiday.

Holiday’s golf community is served by the Forrest Hills Golf Course and Cypress Run Golf Course. Residents who aren’t fans of golf have plenty of other recreational opportunities. The Holiday Recreation Center and Sports Complex is a community favorite because of its indoor gym and exercise facilities. Along Holiday’s Gulf of Mexico coastline, Anclote River Park, Key Vista Slash Gills Park, Fred Howard Park, and Brittany Park provide beautiful opportunities to jog, walk, eat, or play along some of the most gorgeous stretches of shoreline on Florida’s western-facing coast.
