Swimming in a natural spring is like nothing else. The water is so clear and perfect; you’ll never want to settle for a swimming pool again! Florida has an abundance of gorgeous springs, so pack your reusable water bottles and swimsuits and explore some of the best spots in the state.
The biggest mineral spring in the world is in North Port, Florida. More than an acre in circumference and almost 250 feet deep, it’s really more like a pond than a spring and it’s geothermally heated, making it one of only two hot springs in the state.
