If you’re in the Weeki Wachee area and you’re looking for something to do, the springs are actually pretty incredible. Cold and deep, they’re especially nice for a hot day. If you didn’t bring your bathing suit, the mermaid show is also worth a visit. Plus, there’s a relaxing boat trip you can take.
This is a fun park! The mermaids are something special and there is some cool scuba diving in the spring before the park opens. Worth the trip!
