The Gem of the Nature Coast
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. The town of about 3,000 people serves as a winter home for hundreds of manatees that migrate to the bay when the water temperature in the Gulf of Mexico suddenly cools. The only place in the country allowing human interaction with manatees in their natural environment, Crystal River attracts animal lovers from around the world. The town's economy rests on tourism based on swimming with these sea giants, though the surrounding wilderness areas offer plenty of other outdoor vacation ideas, including boating, camping, hiking, hunting, and fishing. Put Crystal River at the heart of your travel plans by using our United States planner.
