Silver Springs State Park

Silver Springs State Park, located in central and charming Ocala, Florida, has been a natural landmark since the 1870s. Florida’s first tourist attraction is home to one of the largest artesian springs in the world. The park became famous for the glass bottom boat tours: guided boat rides where guests could travel around the spring on a clear-bottomed boat to see underwater life. Today, visitors still enjoy the glass bottom boat tours on the same crystal springs that have been inviting admirers for decades and receiving a wealth of aquatic life.
