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 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.
