Tarawood is located in Floral City and Citrus County which is a part of Florida’s “Nature Coast” comprised of nearly one million acres of rivers, dense forests and prairies, making it a destination for hiking, cycling, fishing, kayaking and many more outdoor activities.
Citrus County is located on the west coast of central Florida. Citrus County, home to Crystal River, Homosassa, Inverness and Floral City, is known as the gem of the nature coast. Watered by seven spring driven rivers and abundant in lush forest, Citrus County may be Florida’s most natural attraction.
Known as the “Manatee Capital of the World”, Citrus County is home to both the Crystal and Homosassa River. Both these rivers are spring fed and perfectly clear, attracting hundreds of these gentle giants in the cooler months.
Also known for a number of state parks, wildlife management areas and archeological sites, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
If golf is more desirable, don’t fret. There are several golf courses scattered throughout Citrus County, including Inverness Golf and Country Club located just 13 minutes north of Tarawood, known to be a premier course in the county.
Whether your swimming with manatees, tackling great fishing, playing golf, exploring the lakes and rivers, going scalloping, or exploring the trails and parks, there’s no doubt that Citrus County will leave you with an abundance of memories.
Floral City and Tarrawood are located right between the small cities of Inverness and Brooksville. Just far enough that the beautiful night sky is not obscured by ground light, but close enough to get to the stores, restaurants and medical facilities within minutes. Imagine being able to look up and see the stars again just like when you were a kid!
The Withlacoochee Bike Trail also runs right through Floral City. Enjoy 46 miles of paved trail for walking or biking, winding through stunning countryside.
The area is also full of pristine, spring fed lakes and streams for some of the best bass and freshwater fishing Florida has to offer. Come visit and see for yourself and don’t forget to enjoy the view on the “Avenue of Oaks” at Orange Avenue when you come through town.
