Make a splash
Spring and summer are the best times to enjoy the rivers, lakes and Gulf Coast in Citrus County. Take a dip at Fort Island Gulf Beach or Hunter Springs Park and make sure to go kayaking or paddleboarding on the crystal clear water in Three Sisters Springs at the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge.
Dive into fun
With scalloping season from July to September, summer is the perfect time to dive into this Florida tradition, likened to an underwater easter egg hunt. The waters off Crystal River and Homosassa are two of only a handful of places in Florida where you can dive down and fill buckets with fresh, juicy scallops. Don your snorkeling gear and dive in to gather your dinner.
