Largo is the third largest city in Pinellas County, Florida, United States, and is part of the Tampa Bay Area. As of the 2014 Census estimate, the city had a population of 84,500, up from 69,371 in 2000. Largo was first incorporated in 1905. In 1913, it became the first municipality in Pinellas County to adopt a council-manager government. It switched back and forth from "town" to "city" a few times, and became a city again in 1974. It was an exporter of agricultural products until the 1960s when the influx of people began to transform it into a bedroom community. From 1905 to 2010, Largo grew in area from 9/16ths of a square mile to about 19 square miles (48 km2), and in population from about 300 people to more than 70,000. Largo began as a rural farming community and became the third largest city in Florida's most densely populated county. Largo is a sister city to Tosayamada, Kochi, Japan. In 2007, Largo had been named a National Arbor Day Tree City for the 28 year in a row and is the only city in Tampbay that is a Sterling Tree City.

The shops are close to the downtown. There are many malls with a large variety of shops within 10 minutes of the downtown area. The roads are often crowded but have well-timed lights. There are many retirement communities in the near downtown area and a hospital in the middle of town. There is also a famous eye care clinic and many qualified heart and lung specialists

in or near the downtown area. Largo Central Park, with its Community Theater, is constantly being improved. It hosts Halloween, Easter and Christmas events, as well as stage shows and a large children's playground (for t he grandkids.

As you can see Largo does not have a downtown, it was destroyed in the last 50 years. They are going to start rebuilding downtown with the first mixed used land building in Largo, its about time.
