Our Natural North Florida region has a greater concentration of freshwater springs than almost any area its size in the world. Ranging from smaller springs along the Suwannee, Withlacoochee and Santa Fe Rivers to major springs bubbling up in what looks like dry land, our springs provide incredible opportunities to snorkelers, swimmers and paddlers. And even if you don’t want to swim, you’ll find many of our springs are surrounded by state and county parks with nice recreational facilities like picnic tables and playgrounds for the kids. And best of all, our springs all pump nothing but clean, clear 72-degree F water ALL YEAR ROUND!
It’s taken lots of work, but our Natural Springs Guide has just been published as a downloadable PDF on the Visit Natural North Florida website. Not only does it feature our major and minor springs, but gives excellent information about local amenities at each spring. Some of our springs are favored by snorkelers, others by SCUBA divers, and others by families just wanting to take a refreshing dip in the water.
