Crystal River resort, dining

It might be small, but you’ll still find an excellent range of restaurants and eateries during your stay in Crystal River and the wider Citrus County. There’s tasty seasonal crab in Crystal River, Ozello and Homosassa, which is usually served fresh off the boat. Downtown Inverness also has an eclectic dining scene with a cluster of independent restaurants and pubs serving home-cooked treats.

Shopping on the the Emerald Coast

With a multitude of shops and cafes on Crystal Rivers’ Citrus Avenue, you’re sure to find everything you need, whether that’s the makings of a picnic or souvenirs for family and friends. The relaxed streets of downtown Inverness also play host to independent stores, while Old Homosassa and Floral City have galleries with unique delights and stores with the familiar staples you’ll need.

And, if you like nothing more than a good rummage, Howard’s Flea Market has over 800 covered booths across 55 acres with vendors selling antiques, books, clothing, collectables, arts and crafts and more. Heritage Village, with its collection of unique gift shops and shops selling other specialist wares, is also well worth a look.
