In the early 1960s, William W. Boyd, president of First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Tarpon Springs, noted the name Holiday Drive on a map near the site of the proposed branch to be built in southwestern Pasco County and asked his board of directors to give the name to the new branch. Later Boyd began drumming up support to name the community Holiday.

Holiday is bordered on the south by the City of Tarpon Springs/Pinellas County Line, the Gulf of Mexico on the west (with access from the Anclote River Park, Gulf Park, and Key Vista Park in Holiday), the city of New Port Richey to the north, and Trinity to the east.

Holiday is divided into many neighborhoods, which include:


  • Aloha Gardens

  • Gulf Trace
