Crystal River


I kind of wanted to introduce myself before I start talking about Crystal River. I am brand new to blogging,My wife has a lot more experience with proper grammar If you notice any typos I apologize my wife “ Editor” is traveling at the moment. I like taking pictures I like exploring and sharing what I find. I’m interested in technology, real estate and traveling I’m also business major. I am not going to make my blogs data-heavy just quick and to-the-point.

Crystal River

Crystal River is located 2 hours from Orlando and 1 hour and a half from Tampa. During the winter season Crystal River is home to the manatees. Crystal River also has Three Sisters Springs Refuge which is a great spot to see the manatees

Three sisters springs Refuge

There are two ways to explore Three Sisters Springs Refuge. One is my land to park and walk around. You are not allowed into the spring  from Three Sisters Springs Refuge. The way to gain access is thru Kings Bay and swim into the spring. To gain access to the spring entrance kayak, paddle board or water is  tours are available. For more information on Three Sister Springs Refuge click here.

“Protect the wildlife Observe Wildlife At a distance you are entering their home so be respectful. – Minimize Noise For a better experience, if you’re inside the spring don’t drag your feet just float.”
