Our Communities

Crystal River

Called "The Gem of the Nature Coast", Crystal River is home to King Bays and Three Sisters Springs and the largest winter gathering spot for manatees on the entire Florida Gulf Coast. The thoughtful small town atmosphere that surrounds the historic Downton area in Crystal River extends throughout the neighboring seaside estates and quiet local neighborhoods. Though Crystal River keeps up with the fine pristine traditions that define the Nature Coast, the community is also a hub of local commerce and business. 




Surrounded by natural inland forests and lakes, Inverness is the largest municipality in Citrus County, and serves as the County Seat. The City's picturesque downtown thoroughfare features an array of eateries, retail, offices, antique stores and other sorts of diverse local businesses. Many of the buildings situated within the walkable Main Street Business District are nearly a hundred years old or older. The historic Citrus County Courthouse was even featured in the 1962 Elvis Presley movie "Follow That Dream." With just over 7,000 residents, Inverness has something for everyone, from art lovers and avid outdoorsmen to foodies and shopaholics.



Homosassa is one of Florida's oldest communities and still maintains the charm of an Old Florida Fishing Camp. 



Floral City

Floral City is Citrus County's best example of Old Florida ambiance. Many of Floral City's homes date back over a century to a time when the area's robust phosphate industry allowed the area's population to swell exponentially. In fact, in the early 1900s, when Miami's population was only 350, Floral City was the largest city in Florida with nearly 10,000 people. The old railroad line that came through the City became the base for the Withlacoochee State Trail, which attracts visitors from all over the nation.
