Welcome To The Nature Coast – Citrus County Florida
Welcome to Citrus County Florida. If you’ve ever wanted to swim with a manatee, relax in front of a gorgeous sunset, or reel in the “big one” on one of our scenic rivers… then you’ve come to the right place! Citrus County Florida was created in 1887 and was formerly part of Hernando County. It was named for the county’s citrus trees. The rich historical culture and variety of shops, water recreation, golfing, and dining experiences, make Citrus County one of the most enjoyable places on the west coast.
Central Florida Community College in Ocala and University of Florida in Gainesville are just a short distance. Both Gainesville International Airport and Tampa International Airport handle major carriers while Ocala, Dunnellon and Crystal River are perfect for smaller aircraft to hop in and out.
