Aripeka, Florida is a small friendly fishing community located on the Central West Coast of Florida, in the NW corner of Pasco County. We have our own US Post office,second oldest in the country, so I am told second only to Saint Augustine, Florida. Aripeka has become an artist haven as well as a favorite fishing and boating location. We also have a store. Carl's as everyone calls it, is owned and operated by a local family and one of them can usually be found at the store. They offer just about anything a person could ask for from food and drinks to fishing tackle, boat launching and custom Aripeka Collector's Tee shirts . You can almost always find someone fishing from one of the bridges, or just enjoying the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico and the wildlife which abound here, whether it be birds, a dolphin checking out the area or a manatee passing through, and every afternoon you can usually find a small group of people at any one of several perfect locations for viewing the daily spectacular sunsets. There are several public beaches within a short drive, including a fresh water beach located on the Weeki Wachee River, just minutes from the famous Weeki Wachee Springs where the mermaids still perform daily. Wildlife abounds in Aripeka!! Bear, fox, raccoons, dolphin, manatee, turtles, otters, guineas, turkeys, untold numbers birds of many kinds, including song birds and water birds are seen regularly in and around Aripeka. Even a novice photographer will find beautiful shots in Aripeka.
