Steeped in history and traditional charm, Old Homosassa is a picturesque fishing village located in Citrus County. It is perhaps best known for its pre-Civil War sugar mill ruins. A chimney, boiler, and some other machinery are all that is left of the old Yulee Sugar Mill. The site is now a state park.
Homosassa has more to offer residents than just history, though. Designed to preserve the area's natural environment, Homosassa will appeal to any nature lover and naturalist. Fishermen and boaters alike will appreciate the Homosassa River as it snakes through the area. The refreshing waters offer some of the best freshwater fishing in the county. And don't forget about the Gulf of Mexico, just moments away.
Homosassa Wildlife State Park attracts thousands of tourists a year and is one of the key components of Homosassa's local economy.
The park houses a variety of native wildlife and vegetation, including black bears, Florida panthers, alligators, birds, and other reptiles.
The Fishbowl is the most popular attraction at the park. Here, visitors can view the manatee up close and personal from an underwater, glass-enclosed dome. Glimpse these gentle creatures as they playfully roll about in the water, sometimes even poking their faces to the glass! "View Live Manatee Cam"
