I've lived in Florida for the last 51 years, okay, I was born and raised here. My family dates back to the Mayflower and not too long after landing they headed straight for Florida. I guess they liked things peaceful and quiet.
I've visited a few springs here in Florida and plan to visit a few more in the future. Here is a short list of the ones I have been to:
- Rock Springs also known as Kelly Springs
- Blue Springs
- Wekiwa Springs
- Silver Springs
- Cedar Key Scrub
- Deleon Springs
- Hontoon Island
Along with swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving you can also rent canoes. Beware, there are Alligator's in all of Florida's water holes, not just fish and manatees. They won't bother you as long as you don't bother them. For more information about this park visit this site Florida State Parks.
Florida has 161 state parks and 10 state trials.
Bring your fishing gear along, swim suits, sun screen, ray-bans and a picnic lunch and you'll be all set to visit any of these great parks in Central Florida!
