Military Relocation to Mac Dill Air Force Base

Tampa Florida – So you just found out you’re relocating to MacDill Air Force Base or Central Command (Centcom).

Want to learn more about the Tampa Bay area?

We’d love to be your local military relocation resource, since we have the Clearwater Coast Guard Air Station, the largest and busiest air station, Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Air Base, and Central Command right in our backyard and are experienced in helping other military families and individuals who’ve moved here and we can help with:

  • learning about local Tampa Bay neighborhoods,
  • info on Tampa Bay schools
  • moving and short term rentals,
  • help in buying a Tampa Bay home,
  • getting a VA mortgage | Home loan,
  • and more.

“In addition to the 6th Air Mobility Wing, MacDill Air Force Base is also home to more than 50 Mission Partners, including United States Central Command and United States Special Operations Command. The presence of these two unified commands and other Mission Partners creates a unique multi-service community at MacDill, with all branches of service represented. So although MacDill is an Air Force Base, it is also home to many soldiers, sailors and Marines.”  (Source: MacDill AFB)

It’s easy to see why United States military personal is such a big part of our Tampa Bay communities and neighborhoods. 

One of our home buyers last year had served in the military and was now a consultant and was taking college graduate courses at the University of South Florida – the great thing is we have lots of colleges and universities in the Tampa Bay area to choose from as well.

When relocating to the Tampa Bay area people either want to stay close to MacDill Airforce base which is located 8 miles south of downtown Tampa (withing about 30 minutes) or some are willing to commute a little further to be closer to our Tampa beaches since the commute may 45 mins – 1hr but the tropical lifestyle is hard to beat – either way we can help!

  1. Great article on the military – I am the mil relo guy for our firm in Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads. This is good stuff and Thanks.

  2. Terry – thanks for your kind words 🙂

    John – Yes we have lots of different “magnet schools” and we also have “fundamental schools” – they are all part of our public school system. We also have a huge number of homeschooled children in Tampa Bay.

    Dennis – thanks for the feedback – our goal is to make all relocations as easy as possible.

  3. Cyndee – There must be a mountain of information our military families need when they are relocated. You have certainly provided a good start and I know you are an excellent resource for anything happening in the Tampa Bay area.

  4. Paula – You are so right it is just a start – most families relocating tell us the hardest part about moving is all the little things we take for granted like auto mechanics, carpet cleaners, banks, handyman, etc. Since we work by referral ourselves we find other professionals that approach their businesses the same way – where the client is always the focus!!

  5. Cyndee – with so many families stationed at MacDill this is a super blog jammed with great information! You are their “military family specialist” for the Clearwater Beach area. Susie – Brandon

  6. Hi! I am a teacher looking to find a job in the area. I will be moving from VA, so I know very little about Tampa. In addition to the public school districts, are there also schools on base? If so, how could I contact those schools to apply for a position? Also, out of the public school districts, which is the most reputable? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. =)
