Tucked away just a few minutes north of Crystal River, is a quiet, untouched, nature lover’s paradise. The town of Inglis and Yankeetown is densely populated with forests, waterways, and wildlife. Located on the banks of the Withlacoochee and a short distance from the Gulf of Mexico, this exciting wilderness is just an hour or two from major metropolitan cities such as Tampa, Orlando, and Ocala.
You may never want to leave this gorgeous pristine environment though because there is so much to do here! As part of Florida’s Nature Coast you have unlimited options for planning your days. There are world-class golf courses, great salt water and fresh water fishing, other water activities, antiquing, hunting, bird watching, hiking, and much more. The area hosts many annual events including a seafood festival, the Withlacoochee Bluegrass Jamboree, arts and crafts fairs, the Spring Festival and a Christmas Parade.
With the Withlacoochee River just minutes away from you at all times, the Gulf of Mexico in close proximity, and several other lakes and rivers, water fun is a guaranteed winner with every one. Rent a boat, canoe, or kayak and make your way down any river. Put a jet ski in at the nearest lake and enjoy a day on the water with some friends. If you are interested is some great salt-water fishing, make some time to head towards the Gulf of Mexico. Here you have your choice of redfish, shark, flounder, grouper, and many more species of fish to please any angler. And if you think you can handle the challenge, try your hand at tarpon fishing. You can book a fishing trip with some of the best guides in Florida.
