Florida summer weather extends into September, which gives folks extra time to enjoy the outdoors. Some of Florida’s prettiest places to enjoy summer and beat the heat are its freshwater springs. While Silver Springs State Park in Ocala often comes to mind first, there are two other springs located within 60 miles of Palm Coast, Salt Springs and Silver Glen Springs.

 

Salt Springs Recreation Area is part of the Ocala National Forest. The natural spring bubbles up from fissures, or cracks, in the ground, flowing for 5 miles and emptying into Lake George. Visitors can enjoy swimming, canoeing, and motor boating in the crystal-clear waters of Salt Springs.

 

Also part of the Ocala National Forest, Silver Glen Springs is a gorgeous spot just north of Astor that is both a recreation area and an important archaeological siteThis beautiful spot shows how we can enjoy the outdoors as well as preserve one of Florida’s most valuable natural resources. The spring basin flows gently down into the spring, making it ideal for swimming. Visitors can swim and snorkel in the clear waters that maintain a cool, constant 73*F. Canoe and kayak rentals are also available.

 

With such a short drive from Flagler County to Ocala, why not take a day trip to one of these recreational areas? For more locations and additional information about Florida’s natural springs, visit Florida’s Springs at http://www.floridasprings.org/
