Florida's springs a great way to beat the summer heat

Published 8/1/08 - The Florida Times-Union
Clear fresh water bubbles up from the limestone aquifer below. Clear and cold, at least to us warm-blooded Floridians. The water stays right about 72 degrees, even in the heat of summer, and it feels like a terrible mistake when you first jump in. But don't worry, you adjust quickly, and you come out feeling refreshed deep into your bones.

This is a very nice article that profiles the following springs:
Alexander Springs - (352)669-3522
Blue Springs Park (Gilchrist Blue Spring)- (386)454-1369
Ginnie Springs Outdoors (Ginnie Springs)- (386)454-7188
Ichetucknee Springs State Park (Ichetucknee Springs)- (386) 497-4690
Juniper Springs -(352) 625-2808
Silver Glen Springs - (352) 685-2799
