    Largo is definitely a great spot to retire, not far from other Snowbird cities and minute to the Gulf coast. Beautiful beaches and great climate. I know a number of retired couples from my area, <A HREF="">Collingwood</A> that love Largo. I would definitely recommend Largo.

    We are Canadians from the Niagara Region & we have a place in Largo and we love it. There are so many things to see and do within 30 - 60 minutes away. The beaches are fabulous! We aren't retired yet so other's are enjoying our place but our turn will come and I can hardly wait!
