A wave of cool options

Published June 5, 2009 - The Gainesville Sun
Poe Springs rents canoes and kayaks and also has various ball courts to entertain visitors.

About 40 miles northwest of Gainesville is Ichetucknee Springs State Park - a summertime tradition for Gainesville residents. The park gives visitors the option of floating down the Ichetucknee River or swimming in either the head spring or Blue Hole spring.

The tubing season runs until Labor Day, and guests can choose from three-hour, 1 1/2-hour and 45-minute river routes.

Only 750 people are allowed to float down the three-hour route each day, so plan to arrive early if you prefer this option.
