Citrus Springs is located in Citrus County just north of Hernando. Ponce De Leon discovered the area, and there is a park named in his honor. It is one of the few places to still find conch shells, starfish, and horseshoe crabs.

This is the old south at its best, huge trees, decorated with swaying moss along the riverside. The ideal image of Florida is still alive and well. Originally it was a phosphate mining area until the Second World War until they moved it overseas. What they left behind is now a thing of beauty and draws tourists from all over the country. The abandoned mines are in the Homosassa River bed and are a favorite point of exploration for scuba divers.

Daily Living

Daily living in Citrus Springs is leisure at its peak. If life gets more laid back than this, we need to find out where it is. The cost of living is low, and the crime rate is even lower. You get up every morning to face amazing sights - like a sunrise over the Withlacoochee River. You step outside your back door to fish or hang your hammock on the old oak trees that form a protective umbrella from the heat. It’s a tough life, but someone has to do it!

You may prefer golfing, there are gorgeous and challenging courses at nearby Inverness. Most people come here for the lakes and wildlife. Homosassa Springs is a state wildlife preserve located in Citrus County. It is a warm water spring that entices the Manatees, also known as sea cows, to breed and play. They are a friendly group of marine mammals known only to the Florida regions. Their closest living relative is the elephant. This is also home to a wide variety of living creatures from the famous hippopotamus to otters, bears and of course alligators.

Crystal river preserve is also a sanctuary for these gentle sea cows and is a great place to spend the day observing and learning about the surroundings. Snorkeling and scuba diving are a popular sport here, the water is clear and clean, and the temperature is normally right at 72 degrees.

Lake Rousseau is about one hour away and is a state protected recreation and campground area. It was created in 1920 and has only gotten better over the years. Fishing is at its best in this reservoir. A day trip will get you all the way to Disney land and Universal. These attractions are surrounded by other popular sites too. Take a tour of I-drive and you’ll see what that means. There is a plethora of restaurants and interesting, unique businesses to explore with the best assortment of shops.

Investment Opportunities

You don’t have to be a financial wizard to figure this one out. Buying land and building apartments or homes to resell is a no brainer. The area is quickly becoming a preferred tourist attraction and there just aren’t enough rentals to accommodate them all.

Sooner or later some smart guy will take a few bucks and develop a fish camp or grow worms. That seems like a great way to make a living. Heck, a popular business in any fishing area is cleaning the fish and wrapping them for the fisherman. Who would have believed anyone would pay for this service a few years ago, but they do. Begin with a few little cabins and then add to it as you see fit. There is money to be made here for the right person with a vision and very little money.

Many buyers are set to buy, build and flip. They are making a reasonable profit and enjoying every minute of it. One couple purchased a plot of land, go down south to escape the cold weather and rent out the place for the rest of the year. With taxes being so low, and the small expenses invested, they are in financial heaven and have a winter getaway to boot.

The Playground

Citrus Springs is impeccably positioned for the Florida playground. There is a corridor of fun and entertainment that runs from just north of Citrus County to Key West. It is like a long alley of unique attractions, and most are within a few hours up to one day away. You could live here your entire life and not see them all.

Prospects like this come by once in a life time. There are a few plots of land remaining and a few homes that are available for purchase. They won’t last long at the current prices, so if you are interested jump on it now.
