If you envision taking a dip in a natural spring this summer, plan your next vacation in Florida- where there are over 200 springs located throughout the state! Not sure where to start? How about Ginnie Springs? It’s made up of 200 acres and 7 stunning, crystal clear springs that join together along the Santa Fe River. Once privately owned by the Wray family, Ginnie Springs has been open to the public since the 1990’s.
Location and Admission Prices
Ginnie Springs is the epitome of outdoor beauty. Picture tall canopy trees lining gorgeous turquoise waters, with underwater caverns and limestone flooring that sparkles from the sunlight up above.
It’s no wonder why it is one of the top locations for scuba divers in Florida.
Other water activities include snorkeling, swimming, tubing, rafting, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding. Guests are allowed to bring their own kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. There’s also equipment for rent on site. However, during the coronavirus, some things are unavailable. So, call ahead before your visit for more information.
More Things To Do
If you can tear yourself away from the perfect 72 degree water even for a little, you might discover some enjoyable activities on dry land as well including picnic areas, walking trails, campsites, volleyball courts, and a playground. Camping guests must be 18 or older or accompanied by an adult.
If you forget to pack a lunch, don’t fret. Look for the Ginnie Deli on site which serves breakfast, lunch, appetizers and ice creams too.
