Most of Lutz is located in Hillsborough County, but the most northern part is across the county line in Pasco County where Lutz meets Land O' Lakes and Wesley Chapel. The rural feel of Lutz is retained largely because of the strong commitment of the residents to keep a small-town country atmosphere in the area. The area is dotted with fresh water lakes and ponds, some interconnected through canals. Agricultural land, used primarily for grazing cattle and horses and even a few smaller citrus groves, can be found mixed in with subdivisions, parks, schools, churches and businesses. Lutz is quickly becoming best known for its newer upscale golf course communities and developments offering many amenities such as parks, community centers, pools and playgrounds.
Lutz is one of the few remaining communities where it's possible to find a non-subdivision home on one to two acres of land. A strong sense of community is rooted in the connections of residents to the schools and churches and organizations in the area. The Fourth of July celebration features an old-fashioned parade through the town, a foot race, games and contests, bake-offs, chicken barbecue dinner, and the election of the "gov'ner". The winter holidays are celebrated through the erection of oversized holiday greeting cards and musical presentations of the school-area children.
Significant road improvements have made commuting easier and more enjoyable for Lutz residents. The widening of US 41, and its proximity to Interstate 275, have made commuting to Tampa much easier. The Veterans Expressway, which terminates at Dale Mabry Highway, makes the drive to Saint Petersburg, Clearwater or the Tampa Airport a snap. Students and staff of the University of South Florida (USF) find Lutz a convenient place to live since the university is immediately south west of Lutz.
