Get ready for some old Florida vibes in Homosassa! With a population of approximately 2,200, this community offers lots of small town charm, and a friendly everyone-knows-everyone culture. Home to the renowned Crystal River and the world-famous Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, Homosassa designates itself as a nature-lover’s paradise.

Manatees love the warm waters of the nearby Crystal River, and can be spotted in abundance from November 15 to March 31 each year. And speaking of Manatees, Homosassa Springs offers the opportunity to meet a manatee up close in the wild! Over the years, Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park has help to rescue and rehabilitate more than 40 manatees.

Rosie and Electra are captive West Indian manatees at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. *** Local Caption *** Photographer release on file.
