About Crystal River

Our Crystal River vacation rentals give you a front-row seat to this town’s many charms. The Manatee Capital of the World has something for everyone!

Where Is Crystal River?

This city sits about 80 miles north of Tampa on Florida’s beloved Gulf Coast. Its namesake river borders the city to the west, and scenic marshland abounds in the area, including the beautiful Crystal River Preserve State Park and Saint Martins Marsh Aquatic Preserve. Check out our waterfront rentals for the full Crystal River experience!

Things To Do In Crystal River

Don’t miss your chance to meet Crystal River’s most beloved residents, wild manatees! The area’s natural springs are a temperate haven for manatees, and Crystal River is the only place in the US where it’s legal to swim with them. Book a tour to experience a unique encounter with these gentle mammals. If swimming with manatees isn’t your cup of tea, there’s plenty more to do outdoors, like fishing, kayaking, swimming, and hiking.

Save your spot at a Crystal River rental and experience a truly beautiful corner of Florida’s Gulf Coast!
