Silver Springs State Park, Florida

Today I decided to go on a little adventure. Even though I don’t live far from this place, it has been years since I have last visit. This is truly a hidden gem in the heart of the nature scene in North Central Florida. Silver Springs has a long rich history that dates back over 10,000 years!

Silver Springs State Park has also been the home of many Hollywood Movies from the 1930’s including Tarzan and The Creature from the Black Lagoon! Some of the statues are still under the water and if you take a trip on the glass bottom boats you can see them!

There are many hiking trails to travel as well with plenty of wildlife to see.

Admission to the park is only $2.00 and children under 6 are free! If you ever get a chance to visit Florida or are looking for an activity to do, I recommend this place!
