Now that temperatures are dropping in Florida, you don't have to give up a relaxing swim session, you just have to know where to do it, and we can help. There's a warm salt spring in North Port with a cozy temperature of 85 degrees all year round. So if you want a little vacay to reset your mind and body while waiting for the new year, this is the place.

Warm Mineral Springs Park is not just a warm spring for you to dip in, but also considered a place for healing. Its waters are known to possess 51 minerals, one of the highest mineral content of any natural spring in the United States. That's why many called this place the 'Original Fountain of Youth'.

Don't let the chilly weather discourage you, get ready to put that name to the test.

With its pleasant warm waters and green lush surroundings, this spring is a tiny paradise hidden in Florida. Very deserving of being at the top of your bucket list. Entry fees are only $20 per adult unless you are a North Port resident, in which case you only pay $15. 

You can fully relax swimming or floating in the mineralized waters, or go for a full day of renewal with the spa services available. You can enjoy a 1-hour massage, facial or reflexology. Any of those for $75.

The spring is divided by ropes to designate deep and shallow areas. Children should remain in their designated spots. Only 17-year-olds and up are allowed in the middle of the spring (good swimmers, of course). You can bring your own floating devices if you like.

The park facilities offer chairs and chaise loungers (available at no cost on a first-come, first-served basis), but you can bring blankets and umbrellas if you like, along with food and drinks ( alcohol is not permitted) for the day. Just make sure not to bring any coolers. 

The Warm Mineral Springs Park is only 43 minutes south of Sarasota. They are open every day of the year, Monday through Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. They will be closed on December 25.
