Dade City is the county seat of Pasco County. It is located on the East side of Pasco County. Dade City is popular with tourists for its antique stores, restaurants and historic architecture including the Pasco County Courthouse, Hugh Embry Library, and Edwinola.
An earlier community known as Fort Dade existed nearby in the 1870s and 1880s, but with the arrival of the railroad, the businesses chose to relocate a few miles to the east to be near the railroad. The newer town became known as Dade City. The name became official when the Hatton post office was changed to Dade City on December 18, 1884.
Some fun activities in Dade City- The Giraffe Ranch, Pioneer Florida Museum and Village, and Dade City Wild Things.
