Modeled after the charm and scenic views of Washington, D.C., Ransom Eli Olds of Oldsmoile Cars designed Oldsmar as a quintessential community giving it the designation of being “A Great Place to Live and Work.” A small town, Oldsmar is host to many of it’s own signature events and is only a short drive in any direction to whatever other activity or event your heart desires. Located between Tampa and Clearwater, Oldsmar is an ideal location to commute from for anything from shopping to work. Close to the Gulf Coast beaches and Lake Tarpon, Oldsmar is central to many opportunities for boating, relaxing, or other recreational activities! A perfect blend of ‘Old Southern’ charm with access to a metropolitan lifestyle, Oldsmar is the best of all worlds!
Oldsmar is a particularly fun place to visit during its signature events. The town’s Oktoberfest, offering authentic German food, German beer, live entertainment and a Munich-style tent, is known as one of the best in Central Florida, while the three-day Freedom Fest is a family-friendly, Memorial Day street festival. Oldsmar’s longest-running festival is Oldsmar Days, featuring a bevy of classic cars, live rock ‘n’ roll, a carnival and parade. If you love horse racing, check out Tampa Bay Downs, the area’s only Thoroughbred horse track, with live racing from December through May.
Bonus fun fact: This town has more parks per square mile than any other city in the state. Soar above the tree tops of Mobbly Bayou Wilderness Preserve on a zip line tour with Empower Adventures Tampa Bay, or paddle a canoe along trails in the bay and enjoy the shore’s undeveloped parkland and natural beauty.
