More Summertime Fun (Springs Fun)

Another fantastic summer time treat is visiting one of our natural springs to enjoy the beautiful landscape and cool down at the same time. Florida is home to more than 700 springs and you can find several right here in our own back yard.  8 billion gallons of water flow from the Florida Aquifer every day into these springs and they emerge at a cool 72 degree temperature.

Here in North Central Florida you are just a short drive away from Gilchrist Blue Springs and Ginnie Springs in High Springs, Ichetucknee Springs in Fort White, Madison Blue Springs in Madison, and Silver Glen Springs in the Ocala National Forest.  There are many more not listed here.  One of our favorite activities is to try and visit them all.  Here is a great article from Authentic Florida with many more details.
