hi! i've bookmarked your blog. i fell in love with florida springs this summer. i'm intrigued by Alexander Springs. l love to swim and snorkel in the springs. How does Alexander Springs compare to Blue Springs (the one between Poe Springs and Ginnie Springs)?

I need to choose my location for my Labor Day weekend Springs retreat. I am desperate to return to Blue Springs but need to spend 2 days kind of nearby. Blue Springs is not in the vicinity of Alexander springs, etc. What is your impression of Ginnie Springs? Will it be packed on Labor Day weekend?

I love your blog!

Ginnie Springs is really busy, but it's one of the most beautiful springs in FL. I rank it #2 on my list. I love the fact that you can Kayak between the springs there at the park. You can also camp there. Take a look at there website. Ginnie Springs

I'm not sure about the snorkeling but it is a very beautiful spring. They do rent canoes abd I believe kayaks there. If not, they rent them just down the street at KP Hole County park Link
