    Homasassa Wildlife State Park, www.homosassasprings.org, is a wonderful place to see many of Florida's native species. Shady and pleasant.
    Lots of boat and snorkel tours, including manatee swims can be found in this region. Riverside Resort has a good restaurant overlooking Monkey Island.

Description

Homosassa is more than just a quiet fishing village along Florida's coast. It's home to one of Florida's more impressive wildlife parks and rehabilitation facilities, especially its large numbers of 'migratory' manatees and Lu, a celebrity hippopotamus with more than 40 movie credits -- both at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. The park also hosts an underwater viewing platform, known as the "fish bowl", where visitors can see manatees and fish swimming in the large spring from which the Homosassa River begins. Other sites include the historic Yulee Sugar Mill Ruins State Historic Site, a former plantation that created the town pre-Civil War, and Monkey Island, in the middle of the Homosassa river inhabited year-round by a small family of monkeys. .
