Rainbow Springs State Park is one of the most popular Florida State Parks. Between the glistening turquoise waters, cascading man-made waterfalls, and colorful blooming azaleas, Rainbow Springs State Park seems to exude natural beauty. But beauty isn’t all that this state park has to offer. You can go tubing down a natural lazy river, do a little swimming, pump your arms while canoeing or kayaking, watch for Florida wildlife, or tackle a hike.

Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is quite an original day trip from Tampa. This natural spring has been turned into a one-of-a-kind mermaid-themed attraction. It’s really quite difficult to sum up everything that Weeki Wachee Springs State Park has to offer. While the iconic mermaid show is of course the most popular part, visitors can also explore freshwater caves, get the adrenaline pumping at the water park portion, learn about the wildlife of Florida, and even kayak or swim around the spring.
