Taking the Plunge in Florida’s Springs

Published April 10, 2015
The Lodge at Wakulla Springs has a beach, glass-bottom boat tours and horseback riding (from about $95 a night, wakullaspringslodge.com). In High Springs, the 250-acre Ginnie Springs Outdoors has campsites, cottages and a full range of activities (three-bedroom cottages from about $175 a night, ginniespringsoutdoors.com). For a quieter stay, there’s the comfortable Grady House Bed and Breakfast (from about $140 a night, gradyhouse.com). Great Outdoors, in an 1895 Romanesque Revival opera house, serves up good food and live music. High Springs outfitter Adventure Outpost can customize paddling adventures throughout northern Florida (adventureoutpost.net). You can snorkel with manatees on the Homosassa River from November to March or year-round in the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. American Pro Diving (americanprodiving.com) and River Safaris (riversafaris.com) offer tours.
