Weeki Wachee Springs Review

At Weeki Wachee Springs, the spring flows at the remarkable rate of 170 million gallons a day with a constant temperature of 74°F. The spring has long been famous for its live "mermaids," clearly not the work of Mother Nature, as they wear bright costumes and put on an Esther Williams–like underwater choreography show that's been virtually unchanged since the park opened in 1947. The park is considered a classic piece of Florida history and culure, also features snorkel tours and canoe trips on the river, and a wilderness boat ride gives an up-close look at racoons, otters, egrets, and other semitropical Florida wetlands wildlife. In summer, Buccaneer Bay water park opens for swimming, beaching, and riding its thrilling slides and flumes.
