Are your kids bugging you to take them on an adventure trip? If you live in Florida, you won’t have to go far to get immersed in the miles of forests, lakes, cool springs, wildlife, and adventure. Wherever you go in Florida, you won’t be far from one of the quaint towns such as Crystal River. So the question isn’t where should I go on vacation?—the question is where should I stay in Crystal River, Florida?
Part of the “true Florida” located on Florida’s Nature Coast, Crystal River is spread around Kings Bay. This bay is fed by 50 warm springs and is home to about 400 manatees. In fact, you can swim with the manatees at the Crystal River Preserve State Park! You can also explore ancient Indian artifacts at Crystal River Archaeological State Park, play golf, go fishing, hike through the forest, kayak, look for scallops, or relax in one of Crystal City’s excellent accommodations.
