On the northern and eastern borders, with Withlacoochee River presents 45 miles of riverfront beauty and recreational opportunities. Northeast of Inverness, the long, lazy Withlacoochee helps refresh the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes, a 23,000 acre bass-rich playground for fishermen and a wetland home for a dozen species of bird and mammal considered rare elsewhere in America.

Along US 19, bisecting western Citrus County, a string of first and second magnitude springs give birth to Citrus County's other protean, crystal clear rivers, including the Homosassa, the Chassahowitzka and the Crystal. Flowing at a constant temperature of 72 degrees, these spring-spawned streams provide the endangered West Indian Manatee, America's largest fresh water mammal, with its favored winter home. The people of Citrus County take pride in assisting state and federal efforts to protect this American cousin of the elephant. Large herds of manatees are seen from November through March.

Few counties in Florida enjoy a more salubrious year-round climate than Citrus. Summer days average 82 degrees, moderated by constant breezes from the lakes and the Gulf of Mexico; while winter lows average 62 degrees, encouraging the dedicated gardener to experiment with a wide variety of flowers and vegetables every month of the year. Rainfall averages 45 to 52 inches, most of it falling during the summer months.

Benefiting from well managed growth for the past two decades, Citrus County is now home to more than 119,707 people and is expected to grow to 138,953 by the year 2005. With relatively inexpensive land, the cost of living index ranked Citrus County 52 out of Florida 67 counties. Quality of life second to none has attracted a balanced population mix of both retirees and young families. Opportunities for young professionals and business people in Citrus County are extensive, with a continued, healthy economic growth in the 21st Century forecasted by most Florida experts.
