Best Tips for Visiting Crystal River Florida
Getting There: Tampa International Airport is a major hub and most airlines will fly into it. You can easily check for the best fare deals at Skyscanner, which also has the option to choose ‘cheapest month’ as the departure to find the lowest priced dates to fly to your destination. From the airport to the city center, you can take shuttle service, bus service, taxi and ride-hailing services or rent a car.
Where to Stay in Crystal River Florida: It’s best to stay near the city center, public transportation or the area that you will be spending the most time in. Holiday Inn Express Crystal River is a great choice in the Crystal River. For something on the less expensive side, try Nature Coast Inn & Cottages located in Inglis. For a hotel with a little more extravagance, book a room at the Hampton Inn Crystal River. Or search some great deals on hotels of your choice at Booking.com. If you’re looking for more of a home atmosphere (or are traveling with a group of people), head over to Airbnb that has houses, apartments and even just a room for rent in every price range.
Getting Around: Driving in a new destination can be a bit of a challenge, but if you choose to rent a car, RentalCars.com has great deals. If you are not renting a car, there are plenty of other options. Taxis, Lyft and Uber are available all over the city. For a more budget friendly option, you can take the service bus.
Insurance: It’s always a good idea to travel fully insured so you are protected in case of trip cancellations or medical emergencies. You can check out pricing at Travelex Insurance.
