Located on the glorious Nature Coast, Spring Hill is one of the most beautiful places to stay on the Floridian coast. The famous beaches, golf courses and water sport centres of Florida are all within easy reach of a villa to rent in Spring Hill, Florida, but what really sets the town apart are the incredible nature parks which lie just inland from the town.
Located in the ‘manatee capital of the world’, Spring Hill accommodation is the best place to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat, slowly making their way along the coast and inland along the numerous rivers and inlets to feed. The rich natural life isn’t only confined to the water either. The Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park is home to some 19 species of endangered wildlife including black bears, Florida panthers, gopher turtles and bald eagles. The park is a wonderful asset for anyone in a villa for rent in Spring Hill, Florida, as you can explore on foot, by bike and by canoe, which is certainly the most relaxing and peaceful way to see the park. The Apalachicola National Forest is nothing short of a natural wonder, and is thought of as the best place to walk and cycle in Florida. The bird watching credentials of the forest are undeniable.
After a long day of exercise and exploration, a little pampering goes a long way. The hot springs that adorn the area have been fully taken advantage of, but it is the scuba diving in the underwater caves forged by the springs which is really impressive. Both Manatee Springs and King Spring have been voted into the top 10 scuba sites in the world as the variety of tropical fish species is nothing short of a miracle.
The shoreline provides further entertainment. The white sand beaches are impossibly soft, and many days can be spent from Spring Hill accommodation with the sand between your toes and the sun on your face, but the waters of the Gulf of Mexico are even more exciting. Sailing, windsurfing and deep sea fishing trips thrive in the Gulf of Mexico, bringing Spring Hill to the eyes of the international travel market.
Finally, there is plenty of golf to be played too. There are almost 50 golf courses within half an hours drive of a self catering villa in Spring Hill, Florida, and as long as you pack your handicap certificate, you will be able to arrange a round with ease.
Golfers will be especially interested in Inverness. It is regarded as one of the best in Florida, and magically combines testing greens with idyllic scenery, making it an absolute delight to play.
Florida, known as the Sunshine State, is blessed with year round summer conditions. During July and August, temperatures are ideal, with temperatures of over 30˚C lasting from morning until very late in the evening. Even in January, temperatures are delightfully warm, with monthly average temperatures of 21˚C.
