Hi Amy. Citrus County is a great location in Florida. It is in Central Florida (60 miles or so North of Tampa). We have warm, ok, HOT summers, and we do get the occasional freezing temperatures in Winter. I see you are in New York. Alot of people I know from the north do like the winters here, because it can get cold. Also, we do have one of the top school districts in the State (14th out of 67 in 2010-2011). We also do have a very strong veterans presence, as well as a lot of supporters.
Citrus County made of several smaller towns, and small cities. We do not have skyscrapers, or tall buildings as such. We do have lots of trees, wildlife, and nature in general. However, we are rather close to some of the major cities in Florida. If you want country living, this is a great place, and a great place to raise a family. Low crime rates, lots of festivals, and some great National and Local Parks make this a wonderful place to live.
Feel free to do more research, and if you want to move here I will be happy to assist you in that process!
