The Nature Coast of Florida
Whatever your interests: golfing, boating, kayaking canoeing, fishing, bicycling, motor cycle riding, horseback riding, hiking a nature trail, photography---or just the love of nature, you'll find peace & happiness in this yet undiscovered paradise we call Citrus County! The county is comprised of several small towns--Crystal River, Inverness (county seat), Homosassa, Lecanto, Hernando & Floral City.
Have you heard of the Manatee & ever dreamed that you might be able to swim with them beyond the confines of a Sea World experience? It's not just possible in Citrus County, it's encouraged! The manatee, our "Gentle Giants" return to the warmer spring fed rivers of the area each year, generally between January - March or April, as the gulf waters get colder. They are an AMAZING & docile creature--playful & curious! They truly seem to welcome the contact w/humans. They are a vulnerable & highly protected species, however, and there are strict rules for interaction with them! You can visit them in the famed Homosassa Wildlife Park, take a tour boat from many vendors or rent your own pontoon or John-boat to experience them first hand. TRUST ME... it's an experience of a lifetime that you'll NEVER forget!
Beyond that, many area vendors provide tours & charter fishing trips into the Gulf of Mexico, as well as local rental equipment for scuba & snorkeling adventures. If you're not already a certified diver, you can accomplish that in a couple of days, here in Citrus County!
The real estate market (my piece of this puzzle) is strong & still quite affordable, compared to many other parts of Florida. Citrus County is as diverse as you'll find in the state w/varied topography & vegetation. Whether you're considering a snowbird nest, a waterfront property or another full time residence on some acreage or in a Deed Restricted Community , I'd welcome a conversation with you & the opportunity to assist you in that journey!
Every evening, God provides another stunning sunset for visitors and the natives alike, to finish your day or vacation off with brilliant & colorful memories! Grab your suit, your camera & set your GPS to Crystal River for a visit to treasure. YOUR Piece/Peace of the Florida lifestyle is waiting for you in Citrus County!
