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.
The 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!
The 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.
