Gibsonton hasn't really developed since the 1950's. Gibsonton is close to the water, and has nothing but upside. Easy water access to Tampa Bay/Alafia River. Taxes are realatively low, and with interest rates so low, now is the time to buy.
There is crime and drug abuse everywhere the statics for the area isn"t higher than other places. The area is beautiful with tampa bay, the alifia river, bull frog creek. There are alot of parks, close to many attractions which makes it an up and coming area. l
