6 Outdoor Activities To Try This Spring

As the first two months of 2019 slide into our rear view mirrors and we move into the spring months, now is as good a time as ever to embrace some of the many outdoor activities that you will find happening in and around the Villages of Citrus Hills.  

If you have been thinking about trying your hand at a particular outdoor activity this year, there is no time like the present to get the ball rolling in that direction. And even if you aren't sure exactly what activities might be a good fit for you, we can still help you find plenty of exciting things to do outside this spring.  

Deep Sea Fishing

Deep sea fishing is one of the most popular outdoor activities among people who vacation in Florida, but it tends to be far less popular among residents. That doesn't necessarily have to be the case.  

There is no reason that local residents looking to get outdoors for a few hours can't snag a charter out of Tarpon Springs and head out for a day of fishing on the open seas.  

The Citrus Hills Vacationers Club is actually making deep sea fishing even more accessible by planning Deep-Sea Fishing Excursions. The first event was yesterday and was sold out. These excursions include just about everything you will need for a life-changing eight-hour fishing adventure.  

Tampa Bay Downs

The Vacationers Club is also planning multiple trips to Tampa Bay Downs to enjoy their live outdoor horse races. There are still tickets left for the second trip on Saturday, April 27.  

Placing a few bets on the ponies and then kicking back to watch them run is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the spring weather without worrying about participating in anything too strenuous.  

Pickleball Club

Speaking of activities that aren't too strenuous, if you have been thinking about trying your hand at pickleball, this spring is a great time to get outdoors and do just that. This slightly less intense and significantly more fun version of tennis continues to grow in popularity all over the country, and especially here in Florida.  

One of the best ways to get involved in the pickleball community here at the Villages of Citrus Hills is to join the Pickleball Club, and you can find more information about that over at the Activity Center.  

Bocce Clubs

Another activity that might jump out at you while looking through the list of Activity Center Clubs is bocce.  

We have SEVEN different bocce clubs that meet here on a regular basis, so just about everyone can find a group that fits the skill level they are looking for.  

Golf & Tennis Clinics 

We make a point to highlight the free golf and tennis clinics every month in our Activities & Events blog, and those clinics are another fantastic way to get yourself involved in outdoor activities this spring.

No matter what your skill level happens to be on the driving range or the tennis court, everyone is welcome to come work on their game at these clinics while also getting outside to enjoy the fresh Florida air.  

Activity Center Pool Fitness Classes

The Activity Center Pool also offers a great way to get outside in the spring months. There are fitness classes held there every weekday morning at 10:15 am, and all members are welcome to attend.  

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are Aqua Tone classes, while Tuesdays and Thursdays are reserved for Deep Water Aerobics.  

Whether you are looking to hit the open seas with a massive fishing pole or just toss around some bocce balls, there are plenty of great ways to get yourself outdoors in and around the Villages of Citrus Hills this spring.
