I recently had a chance to make my first visit to Silver Springs, a long-time attraction near Ocala. Silver Springs is most famous for the glass-bottom boat rides above their natural springs. Silver Springs is about an hour and a half from Orlando.
I really didn’t know what to expect before I got there. But my whole family spent the day and had a great time. The park only has one amusement-type ride that takes you high into the air so you can get an overall look at the park. The main attractions are the boat rides and the animals. They had many animals to see, from albino alligators to giraffes, to brown bears. The grounds are beautiful and the nature boat rides are really cool.
But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so check out the Silver Springs pictures in our photo gallery.
