If you’ve never visited a Florida spring before, Wekiwa Springs is a great starter spring. The park in which it is situated has lots of amenities, the swimming area is easy to navigate, and, settled just off of I-4 between Orlando and the east coast, it is a short drive from numerous Florida cities. This was the first spring I visited as a Floridian. Any hesitations I had about swimming in an inland body of water (gators! snakes!) were swept aside when I saw the crystal clear blue water of the Wekiwa Spring swimming area. To get to the spring area, you must pay $6 to enter Wekiwa Springs State Park, follow the road in about 100ft and then veer to the right to find the parking area for the spring head.
