From its early days of rock mining, blossoming Tangerine orchards, to the swimming “mermaids” of the iconic Weeki Wachee Springs, Hernando County has witnessed the ebb and flow in its economy like many small American towns. Yet the diversity of its communities continues to allure visitors and unsuspecting potential residents to explore the uniqueness of its landscape. From the rolling countryside of Ridge Manor to the historic county seat of Brooksville, and the extensive growth in Spring Hill, then onward to the Gulf, each community is distinctive yet unified in providing a pleasant alternative to the more populated tourist havens in the state.
There’s no place like home, especially when your home is Hernando County. Nature’s playground waits just out your back door at Hernando Beach, Aripeka, Bayport, and Pine Island, where boat lovers enjoy living gulf side or having the ease of waterfront canal homes leading to the Gulf of Mexico.
From sports to fashion, home décor to home improvement, Hernando has it all close to home. The signs of familiar retailers draw shoppers out of the sun and into the cool interiors of the many shopping plazas bordering the major roadways: Nature Coast Commons, Suncoast Crossings, Coastal Landing, Coastal Way, and Mariner Square. Locally owned specialty shops and antique stores provide unique shopping with local flair.
When dining out, you can choose from familiar chain restaurants or savor the dishes of local restaurants from Greek, Italian, Thai, Chinese or American. If you are looking for a place to gather, neighborhood sports bars & grills, coffee shops, and ice cream parlors are usually just around the corner.
