On a trip to Disney in Orlando Florida we were able to take a scenic drive through central Florida including the Villages and the Silver Springs area. We were early to meet the rest of our family at the hotel in Orlando so it gave us several hours to explore. We found Silver springs to be a really neat area that once was home to the Tarzan TV show film set, a close amusement park and a state park as well. Most of our time in Florida had been on the coasts or through the Everglades so this gave us a different look at the state and was a great time. A highlight was our trip to the state park which I highly recommend to anyone who is traveling through the area.
Points of interest
Neat little town with history and a good state park to visit
