Floating Down a Dream at Ichetucknee Springs

Post image for Floating Down a Dream at Ichetucknee Springs

Were you aware that there is a magical spring near Gainesville, Florida where the water is crystal clear? Floating down the Ichetucknee River is like a dream – an absolutely magical experience ($5 per person to enter the park). The crystalline Ichetucknee River flows six miles through shaded hammocks and wetlands. You’ll want to stay nearby and arrive at 8am in order to do the full 4-hour float. We recommend The Grady House, a historic B&B with the most charming rooms and best breakfasts. If you arrive late, even the 2 hour float is great! Rent a tube for $20 for the day, and relax in beautiful nature ~ melt stress!

* Since this post was published, I’ve written a book, The Five Treasures of Florida, and dedicated a whole chapter to High Springs. Nearby are the most beautiful springs I’ve ever jumped into – Blue Springs. See for yourself.
