Seffner isn't a big place, but it has a lot of variety and there is a range of neighborhoods to choose from. Your selection really depends on what your needs are. This outline of a few neighborhoods in the city should give you an idea of what to expect.

Lake Weeks: Lake Weeks is a gated subdivision on the northern shore of the lake itself, and many homes offer direct lake access from private docks. Nearby you will find the Seffner-Mango Branch Library, great places to eat like Michelle's Cakes Galore, and retail shops in Mango Plaza. This small community is close to Interstates 4 and 175 and Highways 92 and 574, making it great for commuting or long-distance travel.

Hickory Hill: Hickory Hill is a suburban neighborhood just north of Seffner city center, near Route 92. Most of the residences are houses, but there are a few apartment buildings and condos as well. This area is also close to the library, as well as Darby Lake, and dog owners will be pleased to learn it is less than ten minutes away from the charming Mango Dog Park.

Parsons Pointe: This is a small deed-restricted community in the north west of Seffner, right on Hillsborough Avenue on Route 92 and less than half an hour from Tampa. There are a number of restaurant options in the area, including Carolyns Freaky Tiki Hut for adventurous diners and a Cracker Barrel for those with simpler tastes. If you are looking to burn off some calories, Parsons Pointe is just five minutes from Lake Weeks where you can fish and sail to your heart's content.

Shangri La: Shangri La is a small, pleasant neighborhood with a great deal of houses to choose from. It is a five-minute drive from the center of town, and only a few minutes from Route 92.
