There's something about a crisp and deep blue body of water that makes us all just want to jump in - and with summer in the Sunshine State fast approaching, compiling your list of weekend adventures while keeping cool has probably been on your mind. You'll want to add this deep blue spring near Jacksonville to your summer bucket list - we already want to jump in it.\nThe spring is located at Fanning Springs State Park and shares its name with the park. This shimmering cool blue spring produces well over 65 million gallons of water daily, keeping it super clean and clear for us to enjoy. The entire freshwater oasis is shaded under a canopy of ancient oak trees and connects to the historic Suwanee River, which is perfect for paddling in your kayak or canoe.\nWe're ready for a summer dip after seeing some of the photos of this place. It's the perfect summer splash pad for keeping cool and creating blessing backdrops for your Insta-photos to share your love for all things water and nature. Check out some stunning shots of the springs below:\nView this post on Instagram It’s incredible how beautiful these springs are... #springs #floridasprings #fanningsprings #floridastateparks #florida #water #caves #outside A post shared by joe (@jjbosq) on Apr 12, 2019 at 4:55pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram Looking towards the Suwannee River at Fanning Springs today. #springs #florida #stateparks #swimming #summer #fanningsprings A post shared by Mike (@traaaaack99) on Aug 12, 2016 at 1:01am PDT\nThe deep turquoise hue creates some really cool moody and artistic effects when taking underwater photos too.

It's shady and beautiful if you're wanting to get a little exercise before hopping in the springs to cool off or zen out with an exploration around the springs and surrounding swampland. There's an overlook that oversees the entirety of the spring, and the trails take you to oversee the Suwanee River.\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Transient World Photography (@transient.world.photography) on May 12, 2018 at 10:58am PDT\nView this post on Instagram #fanningsprings #suwanneeriver #florida #sunset #dusk #cypresstrees #nature #naturelovers #boardwalk #oldflorida #flooded #rivers #pretty #ig_travels #tourist A post shared by @ barkmarket42 on Jan 11, 2015 at 6:59am PST\nThey also offer the use of public picnic pavilions for a fee and have spaces for you to have a weekend camp retreat at the springs - and with really affordable camping options!
