|Twilight at a Suwanee River spring|
In my head it looks like a trip hopping into 24 springs in 48 hours. If it is to be done, I think it is to be done in this area. I predominantly spring in the Central Florida area with springs that connect to the St. Johns River. Not all of the springs in Florida are in state parks, some are in National Forest Recreation areas, some county parks, and some on private property. Each is so unique in its natural beauty. My 48 hour plan includes jumping in Lafayette Blue Springs, Fanning Springs, Peacock Springs, Troy Springs, and Manatee Blue Springs. For a decent list to begin to plan your spring trip, start here: Major Springs in Florida. I like the table format. You can also learn more about this special places at Florida Springs. They are Florida's true blue natural gems.
