Fort De Soto Park

Once named one of Florida’s top 10 beaches, Fort De Soto is also a great place to dig for sand dollars and spot some driftwood. You can rent paddle boards and kayaks close by and see manatees up-close and personal. Don’t worry, they're gentle giants and feed on little water plants!

Weeki Wachee spring is one of my favorite places to visit. Grab your friends, a kayak or a paddle board and let the crystal clear current lead you through this beautiful spring. The water stays the same temperature all year, and the views never get old.
