CRYSTAL RIVER, FLORIDA: MANATEE HAVEN



Crystal River is a town of 3,000 people on Florida's Gulf coast about 80 miles north of Tampa. It is located on the banks of Kings Bay and the Crystal River.

Kings Bay is fed by up to 50 fresh water springs that keep the waters at a year round constant temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

These waters are warmer than the Gulf of Mexico in the winter, and hundreds of manatees swim up the Crystal River to congregate in Kings Bay. They are the main tourism draw in this town.

April is a favorite month in Florida for locals. It's mostly cool and air conditioners are only needed now and then. Many of the snowbirds have gone back North so lines are shorter at our local restaurants.
