Wakulla Springs State Park

Florida getaways
You've heard of '50s creature feature Creature from the Black Lagoon? Well, this was where the underwater scenes were filmed. You'll learn that and more at the visitors center, down at the boat dock, where you can peruse historical exhibits about the area.

Or, jump aboard a 40-minute riverboat cruise of the Wakulla River to take in the park's sights, sounds and smells. If you're lucky, the spring's water will be clear and the glass-bottom boats will be running, too. For would-be hikers, there are several short trails from which to choose, all of which are level and easy to negotiate. The newest begins in back of the lodge and leads to several small sinkholes.
