From antebellum homes to crystal canals to sunsets on the gulf, Hernando has a variety of treasures to be explored. A fast growing community nestled in nature, you'll enjoy shopping on antique streetscapes amid historic murals. A scenic drive on oak canopied roads tours you through the turn-of-the-century homes and horse farms that grace this county. Fishermen will find many relaxing spots on the gulf in Hernando's many inlets and bayous while golfing opportunities abound here with courses for any skill level. For a trip that awakens the Yule-time spirit anytime of year, visit Roger's Christmas House where ten decorated rooms shimmer with holiday cheer.
