The jewel of Florida's Nature Coast, Crystal River spreads around spring-fed Kings Bay, known for maintaining a constant 22 C (72 F) temperature all year long.
Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Explore Crystal River's surroundings by going to Gainesville (University of Florida Bat House & Bivens Arm Nature Park), Withlacoochee State Trail (in Inverness) and Cedar Key (Fishing Charters & Tours, Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge, & more). There's lots more to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, and contemplate the waterfront views at Crystal River.
