Summertime is the Perfect Time for Families to Visit Citrus County

Families looking to travel during the summer break need to start planning their trips now. Citrus County is a great choice where the crystal clear springs remain a cool 72-degrees year round and the best way to get a fresh seafood meal is to catch it yourself! These are just two of the family activities available during the summer months in beautiful Citrus County.

Scalloping
Scalloping season (June 27 – Sept. 24) means its time to make plans to visit Citrus County for some of the freshest catch and eat seafood! Part snorkeling, part treasure dive and part saltwater fishing trip, you’ll find these tasty shellfish along the Crystal and Homosassa Rivers in four to six feet of water. Kids especially enjoy the challenge of finding and catching these delicious creatures. Wind up your day at a local eatery, where the chef will cook up your catch for you. Oh yeah!

Cool off in our Springs
Citrus County is home to dozens of springs, like Kings Bay, Homosassa, Chassahowitzka and Three Sisters. At a constant 72 degrees, the water will definitely cool you off on a hot summer day. Walk, drive, kayak or canoe…or get all the way in and swim or snorkel our waters. You may even see a manatee or two swim by!

Fishing
Serious anglers have been hooked on Citrus County for generations. And, with teeming fresh and salt water options, it’s no surprise. Families can take a charter from one of the many experienced Citrus County anglers or rent a boat or just cast a line from shore. Make sure to check out the Tsala Apopka lake chain, which boasts some of the very best freshwater fishing you’ll find anywhere.

The Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park…
…is the most-visited state park in Florida. This wildlife sanctuary is different than any other. Yuma, a Florida Panther cub is a year old and doing great. Or, visit the many other animals including black bears, bobcats, eagles and river otters. You can also get up close and personal with several West Indian Manatee, viewed from a floating observatory in Homosassa Springs.
