Making a bucket list, checking it twice, just add water and ice

Wakulla Springs State Park: Speaking of monster movies, the classic pic “The Creature From the Black Lagoon” (1954) was filmed underwater in the deep Wakulla Spring and along the Wakulla River (which easily doubled for the Amazon). The park is home to Wakulla Spring Lodge, which was built in the mid-’30 by wealthy magnate Edward Ball, whose ghost probably still haunts the time-locked place.

Chipola River/ Bear Paw: This is the tubing destination of Northwest Florida. Even though it is technically located in Marianna, most college students from Tallahassee only know it by the name Bear Paw, which is the company that runs the tubing and canoeing business on Spring Creek and the spring-fed Chipola River.
