Things are getting juicy in Citrus County

Citrus trees abound in Citrus County, one of Florida’s juiciest areas to visit. What, exactly, does that mean? Maybe that you’ll encounter an enormous citrus grove during your travels or enjoy some seriously amazing juice. A bright and brilliant area known for its shimmering lakes and coastal islands, it’s home to several vibrant cities and communities. After booking your Citrus County vacation rental, venture out to discover what makes this coastal gem such a popular option for everyone from students to families to retirees.

Things to do

Old is gold in Citrus County

Fascinating history abounds in Citrus County. The Old Courthouse Heritage Museum, built in 1912, houses the county’s historical society. The Coastal Heritage Museum is packed with ancient photographs and even an old jail cell. And although you'd expect more juice bars than wineries here, there are several lush spots to sample a new red, including local favorites Copp Winery and Whispering Oaks Winery. If you’re an art fiend, you’ll find galleries galore in Old Homosassa and Floral City. As if you need an excuse to get a little crazy with the kids, Puddle in the Pines Splash Park stays open from spring through fall.

Activities

Squeeze up some fun in Citrus County

Oh, the places you will see in Citrus County! Go camping in Withlacoochee State Forest or explore the ruins of Dames Cave. Stroll the Citrus Avenue shops in Crystal River to stash your suitcase with quirky souvenirs and one-of-a-kind finds. If you’ve booked a Citrus County vacation rental in winter, you can celebrate the Florida Manatee Festival. More a warm weather sort? The Floral City Strawberry Festival awaits in the spring. With several luxe spas in the area, you can spend some quality time indoors, too.

Weather

Enjoy your moment in the sun in Citrus County

Did someone say sunshine? It’s abundant here, much like those namesake citrus groves. With hundreds of sun-soaked days on the agenda, spring and summer offer plenty of heat. July tops out at around 90 degrees. Winters are mild and forgiving, with temperatures typically dipping no lower than 45 degrees. (Yes, bring a jacket.) Snow is just something to gossip about when Nor'easters threaten the rest of the coast. Rain is more the story here, so pack your parka and an umbrella if you’re booking that Citrus County vacation rental in the spring.

Natural features

Welcome to the manatee capital of the country

It’s not every day you get the chance to swim with a West Indian manatee. It’s never, really—unless you’re in Citrus County, the only location in the United States where it’s perfectly legal to do so. If you’re craving some sand, the manmade saltwater beach on Fort Island Trail is your best bet. The Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge and Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, both part of the country’s National Wildlife Refuge System, are where both manatees and whooping cranes spend their winters. There are islands here too, though they’re largely uninhabited.
