We took a group of Isle Brand Ambassadors to the springs for the first time and it was such a great time. This area is full of wildlife and great photo locations and you just might see a small alligat... more »
It's only $2.00 per person to visit and it's a nice day trip. Take a picnic lunch or use the snack bar. You cannot put tubes in the water in the park. There are a few nice trails but the signage is pi... more »
Rainbow Springs offers such an incredible experience that my family of ~25 has chosen it as our annual reunion destination. Hundreds of springs fill the river and swimming area with the most beautiful, crystal clear waters Mother Earth has to offer. Paddle boarding down the river was a surreal, spiritual experience (don’t forget sunscreen!) that you won’t want to miss. I’ve never felt so far from the worries and stresses of the rest of the world. Enjoy!
My favorite river/spring in all of Florida. This entry is great, but as a reminder: No alcohol and no disposable containers. They are VERY strict on this. The river is anywhere from 2-4 hours and the shuttles are around pretty often. This is a great experience and I'd highly recommend it if you're looking for a little Florida getaway - I enjoy this more than our beaches. Just get there EARLY Or you won't get a parking spot.
