About Homosassa, Florida
The heart of Florida’s Nature Coast can be found in Homosassa, Florida — where Old Florida charm meets the scenic warm gulf waters. The nearby Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park showcases the first magnitude springs that form the Homosassa River and create a home for the native West Indian Manatees. Outdoor activities abound here, from kayaking and boating, to scalloping and snorkeling, bird watching and fishing.
Citrus County has no shortage of great places to eat. After a great day on the water, many folks ask us about where to eat. We’ve put together a list of a few of our local favorites.
