|As you can imagine, much of the recreational activities in Citrus County revolve around nature and the water. The county is criss crossed by 7 rivers, most of which are spring fed.
The Crystal River is true to its name and is one of the clearest and cleanest rivers in the country.
Other notable Citrus County rivers include the Homosassa River, the Chassahowitzka River, the Withlacoochee River and the Rainbow River.
You can find visitors and residents alike frolicking in these waters and basking on the shores any day of the year.
Citrus County has lots of dry land activities as well. Notice our 20 world-class golf courses. Nationally recognized courses like Black Diamond Ranch, El Diablo, and World Woods are some of the notable Citrus County golf courses.
Locally famous is the newly constructed and exclusive Skyview golf course at Terra Vista of Citrus Hills.
Perched high upon the central ridge area of Hernando Florida, Skyview offers panoramic vistas like none other. Another must-play course is the grand old lady of Citrus County, The Plantation Inn and Golf Resort, located in Crystal River.
Whatever your choice of lifestyle, Citrus County offers a community just right for you. Pinecrest Building Corporation can help you identify the right community for your dream home.
Boating, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming, and tubing are just some of the popular activities. The Crystal River, Homosassa River and King's Bay are famous for their native manatee population. These gentle giants of the sea have made the year-round warm waters of the spring-fed rivers their home during the cooler winter months.
People travel the world to experience these prehistoric mammals close up. The area is dotted with local dive shops that provide boat rentals, guided manatee tours, manatee snorkel tours, scuba instruction and manatee education programs. Citrus County is one of the few places in the world that you can actually swim with the manatees.
Citrus County also has some fine country living with an equestrian flare. Pine Ridge Estates, for example, offers large pine forest estates with over 28 miles of horseback riding trails spread through out.
You can actually ride to your neighbors house on horseback. There also a community center and equestrian complex with professional stables, paddocks and corral.
