One of the main reasons people move to Florida is the year-round sunshine. In a state known for great weather, Citrus County has Florida’s best.
Unlike humid South Florida, the region surrounding the Villages of Citrus Hills doesn’t have the Everglades water effect. We instead sit on the Central Ridge. At 260 feet above sea level, the Villages of Citrus Hills benefits from the breezes off the nearby Gulf of Mexico, keeping the climate temperate all year round.
Citrus County’s year-round average is about 72 degrees with 65 percent humidity. In fact, comfortable days are the norm. We enjoy 274 days a year in the temperature “comfort zone”, which falls between 65 and 75 degrees. It also means you won’t spend the whole summer hiding from the heat in your air-conditioned home. Beautiful weather isn’t just a perk; it will improve your quality of life.
An Enormous Amount of History
From the historic sites of the Second Seminole War to the shell mounds of ancient natives, Citrus County is packed with tons of great history and plenty of places to learn all about it. The county also has a long history of producing outstanding thoroughbred horses, including multiple Kentucky Derby champions.
Low Cost of Living
Like all Florida residents, those living in Citrus County are not subjected to any state income tax. However, unlike some of the more urban parts of the state, Citrus County residents enjoy a relaxed atmosphere where they don’t have to worry about gouging prices that you might find in many popular tourist areas. The cost of living is very reasonable in Citrus County.
