Welcome to Citrus County Florida with seven major waterways winding through the land, it has more waterfront property than one can imagine.

In the eastern part of the county, there is the Tsala Apopka lake chain, including Big Lake Henderson, and the Withlacoochee River.

To the west are the Chassahowitzka River, Homosassa River, Salt River, and the Crystal River, all of which flow into the Gulf of Mexico, and their countless canals, streams, and tributaries.

The Crystal River actually flows into Kings Bay before continuing on into the Gulf of Mexico. A leisurely ride down Kings Bay Drive will bring you to one of the most luxurious neighborhoods on the west side of Citrus County. Here you will get a glimpse of some of the most magnificent waterfront homes in the region. This neighborhood is quiet, a sort of community within a community, and gives residents a wonderful feeling of privacy and exclusivity.

Both the Crystal River and the Homosassa River are spring-fed. They maintain a refreshing 72-degree temperature year round, and are the seasonal homes of the manatee, the county's most famous resident. People travel the world over to watch and even swim with these majestic sea creatures that were once mistakes as mermaids by ancient sailors.

Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle-boarding and diving are some of the most widely enjoyed pastimes in this area, along with fishing and boating. Fishermen will appreciate these waters that offer some of the best freshwater fishing in the state. And just off the coast of Citrus County in the Gulf is where record setting tarpon have been caught, and a variety of other game fish abound.

Many homes line the shores of these rivers with docks and boats. From the comfort of your backyard, enjoy incredible sunsets or spend an afternoon quietly sunbathing in the warm Florida sunshine.

Also, be sure to meander down Ozello Trail and Fort Island Trail, roads that wind through marshland between the mainland and the gulf with spectacular waterfront and stilt homes. One never knows what wildlife will cross the road or be standing alongside the shoulder. At the end of Fort Island Trail is a small public beach great for cooling off in the summer months.

If a waterfront home or lot is what you seek, along with fantastic fishing and boating opportunities, look no further than Citrus County. Please contact Melanie today for information on waterfront homes for sale in Citrus County Florida!
