Citrus County Reviews
I've lived in Citrus since I was hardly a year old (I'm nearly 21.) Moved from Clearwater. I had a great life here with my family; dad (until he died when I was three) my mother, grandma and pops. We all lived in the same house together for years. We were in Inverness this whole time and we always enjoyed it. We moved to the town right next to Inverness back in November, and a month ago I flew from the nest and I now live in Marion County (town of Ocala.) Citrus county has a nice small town feel, plenty of "mom n' pop" restaurants (Joe's family restaurant is my favorite) and downtown is beautiful with rich history. Only downsides are that there's a lot of hard drug use among teens and adults, a lot of the kids think they're thugs and all that. I'll always remember this place and love it. My advice is that Lecanto Highschool is not a good school if your child has mental illnesses, and that Rennaisance (school for troubled youth) is great.
Citrus County is a safe and friendly community. It has many events and organizations that its residents can join. One issue with Citrus County is that it lacks diversity. In some areas, such as Lecanto, there’s more diversity. Citrus County does have great schools and most of the high schools have special programs, such as a computer academy or art program, that will help prepare students who want to go into those fields for college.
Citrus county is a very small community and not very well known. The town has very limited activities and often have seasonal activities. The public schools need a lot of work, coming from someone attending the public school.
