About Crystal River

The area surrounding Crystal River was once settled by Native Americans, and today you can see the remains of these settlements at Crystal River Archaeological State Park. Later, the turpentine industry and cedar mills boosted the town’s economy, and the arrival of the railway in the late 1800s started to draw visitors to the area, as Crystal River expanded into the city it is today.

Manatees remain the main draw for visitors, and this is the only place in the US that you can legally swim with them. With over 70 springs in Kings Bay, the 72-degree spring fed water maintains a constant temperature that is ideal for sheltering manatees from November to March.

While you’re here, make sure to dine on Southern specialties like mac and cheese and shrimp and grits. Fish and seafood is on the menu at most restaurants, with a focus on fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

What to do

Swimming with the manatees is the main attraction for visitors to Crystal River. Visit the boardwalks at Three Sisters Springs to spot them, go stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking or simply enjoy a swim with these gentle giants.

Diving is also popular here, and Kings Bay is one of Florida’s leading scuba dive destinations, with the Gulf of Mexico and the Great Florida Aquifer on your doorstep.

Uncover local history at the Archaeological State Park. This 61-acre Native American ceremonial site is located on the shores of the river, with burial mounds and a small museum to explore. Alternatively, take the kids to Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge, where you can spot black bears, alligators, raccoons, bobcats and more.

The focus here is on outdoor activities, and Crystal River is a great place for hiking, camping, fishing, golfing and biking.

Top Crystal River travel tips

The nearest airports are Gainesville Regional Airport (68 miles) and Tampa International Airport (74 miles).

The climate in Crystal River is hot and humid, and the temperature rarely drops below 31 degrees fahrenheit all year round! Summer is the most popular time to visit, although if you’re dreaming of swimming with the manatees, the best time to come is between November and March.

Golfers will find no less than nine golf courses in the area, suitable for players of all abilities.

Whatever outdoor activities you love, you’ll find plenty of fun for the whole family in Crystal River. Swimming with the manatees is an experience you’re never going to forget!

Waterfront Manatee House
Best place in our 10 years of scalloping in this area.

Our second year of staying here. The house as always was neat and clean and had anything you need for a relaxing vacation. The pool is great with a beautiful view which we took advantage of daily. We have stayed in many places in our 10 years of going to this area and this is the best. The only house that can fit six women in the kitchen area fixing meals at the same time. The owners are very accessible at any time but we had no need to call because everything was perfect. Plan to book again next year. If you have need of a guide for anything their daughter, Traci, is a boat captain. She gave us the most wonderful time taking us scalloping and went out of her way to show us dolphins, sea turtles and even a brief swim with a manatee.see more
Perfect Waterfront Getaway - Kayak, Fish, Relax
Great vacation spot.

We loved the privacy and the lake view. There was lots of wildlife around the lake to see as my son and I fished from the pier. The cottage was very tidy and well kept. We spent a lot of time in the Florida room, enjoying the lake view. We certainly want to come back. … see more
