The Sunshine State is sprawling with gorgeous coastal beaches and shimmering inland springs. With the hotter months fast approaching, planning where we take a dip to cool off is a must. A glassy and clear spring tucked away in Salt Springs Florida - Silver Glen Springs is absolutely amazing.\nThe Silver Glen Springs recreational area offers a wide array of nature infused activities to relax on a hot summers day or after a particularly stressful week - such as snorkeling, canoeing or kayaking, and areas for you to have a lovely little picnic. The water here is so gorgeously clear, you can even see the sand bubbling at the bottom!\nThe spring and surrounding rivers are nestled comfortably in the Ocala National Forest, surrounding the beautiful waterways with a thriving Florida Ecosystem. The water is always a clear and gorgeous shade of glistening turquoise, the perfect place to make a splash with perfect Instagram photos. There's even a tree that sweeps into the water that inspires the most gorgeous shots.\nThe photos truly speak for themselves; check out a few beautiful pics from the Silver Glen Springs below:\nView this post on Instagram #SilverGlenSprings #OcalaNationalForest #FloridaSprings A post shared by Charlene Zeigler Taylor (@pearls_pyxies) on Apr 4, 2019 at 7:34pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram This rainy day has me needing another trip to the springs #silverglensprings #floridasprings #rainraingoaway 📷: @sabrinakathleen.fl A post shared by Sarah Elizabeth Koval (@sarah.elizabeth_k) on Feb 26, 2019 at 2:09pm PST\nView this post on Instagram The only thing I can think to say is that I’m thankful that places like this exist, and thankful for the opportunity to see them.
