My Top 10 Things To Do From our Crystal River Vacation RentalsrnrnWhat a difference a nature coast makes! The contrast between the congested freeway I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d rnleft only hours before, and the serene scene that stretched before my vacation home in rnthe OZELLO KEYS , CRYSTAL RIVER, FL. was so pronounced, for a minute I thought I was in rnanother country. Trees dripping with Spanish Moss lined a slow moving river who\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s calm rnwas only broken by the chug of a fishermen laden boat returning with the day\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s catch. , rnwhile a tiny island, inhabited only by monkeys, lay midstream AS I PADDLED BY IN MY 2 rnPERSON Kayak supplied with my vacation home. rnThe monkeys, relocated to their island habitat from a now defunct Florida animal park, rnenjoy the gorgeous view everyday. I was only visiting \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Florida\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s Nature Coast\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" for the rnweekend. And even though the vista from the Stilt home at 13972 Ozello Trail, Ozello Keys, rnCrystal River had an almost meditative effect on me, there was much more to see and do in rnthis fascinating, but little known, corner of Florida that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s less than two hours drive rnfrom Orlando, Tampa or Daytona. rnrnThe Ten Best LowdownrnAs with all our \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Ten Best\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" lists, item number one is the author\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s personal favorite. rnAside from that, the order is not an order of preference. If it made it on the list, we rnthought it was pretty nifty, plain and simple. Be sure to stay tuned at the end of the rnarticle for great places to eat and stay while visiting Citrus County. rn10 Best Things To Do In Citrus County, Florida rnrnrn1. Swim with the Manatees rn2. Salt or fresh water fishing rn3. Visit the Ted Williams Baseball Museum rn4. Explore Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park rn5. Paddle a River Kayak rn6. Enjoy Great Golfing rn7. Go Biking rn8. Scuba Dive or Snorkel rn9. Shop for Antiques and Collectibles rn10. Discover History from 500 B.C. to the Present rn rnrnGetting There and Practicalitiesrn rnrn1. Swim with the Manatees -- Citrus County is known worldwide for its manatee population rnand the protection of this endangered species is taken very seriously. Each year, many rntourists learn about the plight of the gentle giants first hand, by donning a wetsuit and rnsnorkeling the warm springs where the manatees come to escape the cold winter ocean rntemperatures. rnThe rules are strict: no chasing, riding or otherwise harassing the manatees. Swimmers rnmust allow the animal to approach them, not the other way around, and never touch with rnmore than one hand at a time. The rules didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t damper the experience in the least. Since rnthe manatees have no natural enemies, they regularly made contact with their awestruck rnhuman visitors, and seemed to particularly enjoy being scratched under the flippers. At rnone point, I found myself surrounded by a swirling, graceful underwater ballet as three rnbaby manatees played a game of tag, seemingly oblivious of my presence. rnSwimming with the manatees isn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t difficult or too physically exerting. There were young rnchildren as well as seniors on our trip. If you want a lifetime of stories to tell your rnfriends, and the videos to prove them, do not miss this rare opportunity to interact with rnnature. rn￼rn2. Salt or Fresh Water Fishing -- The fishing\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s fine in Citrus County, whether you prefer rnthe fresh or salt water variety. You can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t throw a rock in this area without hitting a rnfishing charter service. Anglers will be in seventh heaven year round as the catch is rnbountiful. Springtime brings Black Bass and Trout. Add Tarpon Sheepshead and Grouper to rnthat list come summertime. In the fall its time to fish for Red Fish, Speckled Trout, rnBass and Grouper and winter is Snapper season. rnrn3. The Ted Williams Baseball Museum - Baseball fans can relive some of the game\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s most rnspectacular moments, as well as learn everything they could possibly want to know about rnbaseball legend Williams at the museum. An 80 seat sports theater shows continuous videos rnof Ted Williams and the all-time greats. Before you leave, be sure to pay homage to rnbaseball\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s best hitters in the Hitters Hall of Fame (new inductions take place each rnFebruary). rnrn4. Explore Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park - More than one third of Citrus County rnis protected as federal, state or county parks and wildlife refuges. Homosassa Springs rnState Wildlife Park is a great way to get a look at a lot of it in a short period of rntime. Visitors will especially want to visit the manatee rescue refuge to get an up-close rnview of these amazing creatures. An underwater observatory gives you a fish eye view of rnthe action -- the next best thing to actually swimming with the manatees. In addition to rnmanatees, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll see a host of other wildlife indigenous to Florida, and one hold over rnfrom the days when the park was a privately owned parked -- Lu the hippopotamus is a rnlocal favorite who will live out his days in comfort at the state park. rnrn5. Paddle a River Kayak -- Pop in the 2 person Kayak at your back door at the vacation rnhome. Short paddle from the Lagoon around a saw grass island and your in the River. The rnSt. Martins River provides a wonderful place to view wildlife such as dolphin, manatees, rneagles, otters, and over 200 species of birds. Miles of Sawgrass islands to explore. The rntwo homes offered at OZELLO KEYS , CRYSTAL RIVER, FL supplied my Kayak with the homes rnsaving me so much money.rnrn6. Enjoy Great Golfing -- As Citrus County is home to ten challenging public courses and rnfour outstanding private courses, long waits are rare. Both serious and casual golfers rnwill enjoy playing among the hills, valleys, nature trails and wildlife this corner of rnFlorida offers. A FREE list of Names, addresses, and phone #s of the area courses are rnlisted on their website at CrystalRiverWaterfrontRentals.com rnrn7. Go Biking! -- Citrus County is a biker\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s paradise. On my ride along the Withlacoochee rnState Trail (part of the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Rails to Trails\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" program which converts defunct railroads into rnbiking and hiking trails), I met cycling enthusiasts from as far away as Canada to the rnnorth and California to the west. They came because of the diverse two wheeled rnopportunities in the area. In addition to the Withlacoochee, 46 miles of asphalt which rnmeanders through state and county parks and recreation areas, the Fort Islands Beach rnTrail will take riders to the County\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s only salt water beach. There are also some rnwonderful off road trails which snake through woods and meadows teeming with birds and rnother wildlife. rnRegardless of your biking taste, the bikes are supplied with these waterfront Vacation rnHomes saving me additional money. rnrn8. Scuba Dive or Snorkel -- Besides the thrilling opportunity of swimming with the rnmanatees, the Nature Coast offers divers a host of other options. Caves, grottoes and the rnchromatic rainbow springs - named for its assortment of multi-colored fish and plants-- rntempt divers. Snorkelers will enjoy exploring the shallows of the Crystal River where, if rnthe season is right, they\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re apt to see a manatee or two. rnrn9. Shop for Antiques and Collectibles -- The county is dotted with interesting little rnantique and collectibles shops as well as flea markets and even auction houses. You can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t rndrive far without coming across something of interest. A good place to shop around lunch rntime is Heritage Village, a collection of shops and a wonderful restaurant housed in rnhistoric buildings. Antiques and collectibles will be found along with unique gifts, rngourmet food and home accessories. Heritage Village can be found on North Citrus Avenue rnin Crystal River, Florida. rnrn10. Discover History from 500 B.C. to the Present -- History buffs, whether their rninterest is ancient or more recent times, will find a lot to explore in Citrus County. rnThe 14 acre State Archaeological Site in Crystal River dates back to 500 B.C. More rnrecently, Fort Cooper was a post during the Seminole Indian war in the 1830\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s. The County rnis even home to 14 ghost towns, once thriving farms communities, wiped out in the big rnfreeze of 1894/95. By the 20th century most of these towns were gone, but their remains rnare still there to explore today.rnrnBy the way, This area has some of the BEST Motorcycle rides in the State, US19 North of rnCrystal River traffic thins out to almost a lonely road on your way to CEDAR KEY for rnLunch.
