As Summer approaches, we’re all getting ready to plan some vacations. If you’re planning on making a trip to Florida this summer, or are from Florida (like me) and want to go on a little adventure, here’s some ideas. Usually when I go home in the summer I tend to get a flight anywhere else, but I’ve never really ventured through Florida and seen all the pretty spots we have right here. These are all the springs on my Florida bucket list.
1. Weeki Wachee Springs
Weeki Wachee springs is an enchanted place where you can see live mermaids, take a trip on a river boat cruise, learn about Florida wildlife, and swim in the Buccaneer Bay. You can also rent a paddle boat and go down to the Weeki Wachee river.
2. Manatee Springs
This state park has trails that will lead you around deep sinkholes, walks through the forest, and a spring with extremely clear water. The hue of the spring is actually from microscopic limestone particles in the water.
3. Wakulla Springs
Wakulla Springs is known for having one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world. There are daily guided riverboat tours as well as glass boat tours where you can see the clear water up to 75 feet.
4. Madison Blue Springs
This is considered one of Florida’s top cave dives and is a hundred-foot spring that allows for non-diving fun as well.
5. Devil’s Den Spring
This is definitely a place that has been on my bucket list for a while. It’s a prehistoric spring good for snorkeling and diving. They even have cabins and parks to stay the night.
Have you been to any of these? Let me know in the comments!
