Best of Florida Travel -- Weeki Wachee Springs State Park in Spring Hill

One of the best family outings in Central Florida in our Best of Florida Travel series. Weeki Wachee Springs State Park (Spring Hill;; 352-592-5656). As a sentimental favorite, there’s nothing like Weeki Wachee Springs. Women dressed as mermaids perform aquatic ballet in the bone-chilling spring as they have for more than 60 years. The attraction now includes a water park, riverboat cruise and an animal encounter that includes snakes, turtles and alligators.JOE BURBANK, ORLANDO SENTINEL
