In Spring Hill Florida there is an awesome spring called Weeki Wachee Springs
and it is beautiful!
My family and I went there 3 or 4 times, every time we went we saw at least one manatee – and one almost tipped us.
All the alligators were relocated, so you can swim just about everywhere but you do need to watch out for water moccasins. (which are poisonous water snakes)
We saw a raccoon and it jumped on someone’s boat! When we got back on land, one of the people that worked there told us they relocated it three times and it kept coming back!
It is so much fun to swim in because the water is as clear as glass. There are currents in a lot of places so you can jump off a log or a sand bar and drift down the spring. You can swim right up to the fish. There are also turtles, cormorants, anhingas and a lot of fish and manatees!
