Citrus Springs Florida
Citrus Springs offers the feeling of open space and closeness to nature on a more affordable budget. The lots and the homes in Citrus Springs are more modest than the nearby Pine Ridge Estates.
The Citrus Springs area is enormous and still largely undeveloped with several hundreds of vacant lots, many of which are for sale.
There are sections with more dense development for a more neighborhood feel or you can buy in more sparsely developed sections for greater privacy.
In almost any direction you look in Citrus Springs, you will see unspoiled wooded areas and all that nature has to offer. Local wildlife includes eagles, red tail hawks, owls, squirrels, tortoise, fox, and raccoons among others.
If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy the sight and sounds of just relaxing in the backyard.
A Citrus Springs home is perfect as a starter home for a new family or a retired couple looking to down size and return to a slower, less hectic pace. Many activities are offered to the residents through the Citrus Springs Community Center and the surrounding area offers endless outdoor recreation.
Golf is also a popular pastime in Citrus County. Within Inverness's city limits, Inverness Golf & Country Club and Lakeside Golf & Country Club provide challenging holes and interesting obstacles along the course.
The rest of the county is also teeming with other such championship courses, including Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club, Twisted Oaks Golf & Country Club, El Diablo Golf & Country Club, Skyview, and more.
The City of Inverness is alive with activity during the Great American Cooter Fest an annual festival in downtown Inverness. Here you can enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of Inverness and the lakefront park with real Cooter Turtles which the event is named for.
Citrus Springs offers only a short drive east to Inverness and the Tsala Apopka Lake Chain. The lakes of Inverness offer excellent Bass fishing and pleasure boat recreation, including airboat tours.
Just to the west is the Gulf of Mexico via Kings Bay, another boating and recreation hot spot with thrilling, saltwater sport fishing out in the gulf.
