Winter and early spring is the best time of all year to be in Florida, and visit Silver Springs, of course! The water is crystal clear, allowing great views of the sand bubbling up from the many springs that you will see on our amazing glass bottom boat rides. Journey into the past on these vintage 1970's boats and reminisce about visits to this amazing place during your childhood years while introducing these "future memories" to your own children.
Manatees have been regular visitors here during recent times and may be seen as well. Be sure to stop by our Friends of Silver Springs Welcome Center, and have a pancake breakfast presented by the Friends in February. Have lunch and ice cream anytime at our shops, camp or stay in our luxurious cabins, hike the trails and see many different native Florida habitats that appear as they did hundreds of years ago. Don't miss the Silver River Museum. Definitely don't miss the big event, Florida SpringsFest, the first weekend in March.
