Follow their lead. Manatees and snowbirds (of the human variety) know that the place to be during frigid winter months is in Citrus County, Florida, where hundreds of the gentle giants migrate each year to enjoy the relatively warm, spring-fed waters of Crystal River and Homosassa River.
Why should your readers do like themanatees and visit Citrus County this winter?
Because Citrus County is the only place in the U.S. where visitors can actually swim with these chilled animals while they stay warm in spring water!
So go ahead and give a thousand pound manatee a bully rub or a quick tickle, when one swims up to you!
Want to see manatees without getting wet? Visit the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, where visitors can watch manatees up close in an underwater observatory in the main spring. Visitors can also see the rare whooping crane, deer, bears, bobcats, egrets and flamingos along unspoiled nature trails.
Swimming with a manatee is a Bucket List item that can easily be checked off with a visit to Citrus County this winter.
