Silver Springs State Park
Located in the central and charming Ocala, Florida, Silver Springs State Park has been a natural landmark since the 1870s. Florida’s first tourist attraction features one of the largest artesian springs in the world. The park became renowned for the Glass Bottom Boat tours: guided boat rides where guests could travel around the spring on a vessel with a clear bottom in order to view life underwater. Today, visitors still enjoy the Glass Bottom Boat tours on top of the same crystal springs that have been inviting admirers for decades and sustaining a wealth of aquatic life.
