As for traffic, Citrus Springs is very quiet. In my opinion, if Citrus Springs actually had sidewalks, they'd be rolled up at 6 pm. Just wear something reflective, in case you are out after dark. One thing to keep in mind is the possibility of meeting one of our beautiful neighbors, the coyotes. I sometimes see them out later at night. I am an animal lover and I often slow my vehicle and watch them. They do their best to keep their distance from people, however. Some people carry a walking stick just for peace of mind. I don't know of anyone having any problems.
If you truly wish to avoid motor vehicles, there is the Withlacoochee Trail, a rails-to-trails paved path that begins in Citrus Springs and winds all the way south to Hernando County.
So, my suggestion is, if you happen to be in the area, drive by at various times - day, night, midweek, weekends and get a feel for the area. Only you can decide where you would like to live.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or if you'd like to see homes or land in the area.
