On our trip through Silver Springs Florida we stopped at the state park for several hours and it was a highlight of our day. The little gem was not busy at all, which surprised me because it was a fantastic attraction. It is centered around a chain of ponds, lakes, rivers that are formed by underwater natural springs. The water is so pure and clear you can see 70 feet down to the bottom. We took the glass bottom boat tour they offer and were not disappointed as it provided the perfect tour of the property. There is also a hughe boardwalk and trails that runs through the property and the usual restaurant and visitor center.
