As summer comes to an end, now is the perfect time to sneak in one last trip before the leaves start to turn, and we say goodbye to longer days and warmer nights.
Rock Springs in Kelly Park is a beautiful oasis outside Orlando where you can wade in crystal clear swimming holes without having to make the trek to the Florida coast.
This park has plenty of lush, rugged trails and secret grottos you can explore. If you prefer to spend the majority of your time in the pristine waters, you can paddleboard, kayak, or even go tubing in the gentle springs.
The turquoise pools are a welcomed respite from the infamous Florida heat. The refreshing water stays at 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit all year long.
The limestone grottos nestled in the water are ideal for diving, and snorkeling and the sparkling waters allow for high visibility.
