I have a place in Hernando, I like it over there when I'm there. I don't care much for Beverly Hills. Lecanto, Hernando, Inverness, Dunellon are all nice laid back communities, low crime and it's growing , you'll meet your fair share of transplants.

I also have health issues that are aggravated by the cold weather, so I did considerable research and exploratory trips to Florida to find our retirement place. If you check out the monthly temperature ranges for Citrus County you will discover that it actually gets cold enough there to be an issue. I'd suggest you look from Tampa south if you're looking for place that will give your dear wife year round relief. There seems to be a climatic shift when you get north of Tampa and for me it was a deal breaker as far as pain relief. Best wishes.

The area I saw in BH was full of homes, not slums, but not well kept either. It just appeared to be a neighborhood full of bland, row houses and there were a lot of for sale signs as well. I'm sure there are nice areas of BH but I favor the communities along the US 41 corridor anyhow.

Yes there can be a 10 degree cooler difference in temps between Citrus County and Tampa but your only going to be dealing with it a handful of nights per year usually.

I'm going to disagree here...
I lived in Floral City for 5 years and the winter temps were consistently 10-12 degrees cooler than Tampa. The warm gulf water makes a big difference. The same thing occurs here (Seacrest Beach) as I'm right on the gulf but 1 mile inland in the winter is a lot (10-15 degrees) colder. Not just a handful of nights.

We moved here to Sugarmill Woods in Homosassa this past April from Oklahoma City and really like it here.

I have a home with property for sale in Dunnellon, and our winters can get a good bit colder than the coasts of the state. I hate the cold too, but have never needed more than a sweatshirt jacket. I dont think we had many, if any days that were lower than the 50's. The nite is when it gets cold, so it depends how often you go out at nite. The area is peaceful and has no crime at all.
