How shall I put this?
I had to cancel a business meeting at 11 am because there’s a Tropical Storm in the Gulf of Mexico. It is better to not have to cross any bridges today. And my hub and I went on our first road trip to Wekiwa Springs in Orlando yesterday. It was our first trip in months without the dog.
Not that it matters to you all. But…
to sit here at this place…
was awesome. Finally, I was here. My hub had surgery on his foot a few months ago and well, it was over.
Sorry I don’t have pictures or any way I can email you or Tweet the emotion of sitting in one of these ….
in the water. But I was lucky to get these three pictures at the park.
Then, add to the fact that we had to sit there for a half hour before we got in. This place is a popular place in the Orlando metro area.

WARNING IF YOU WANT TO GO TO THIS PARK: GET UP EARLY AND GET IN LINE BY 7:30 AM OR FORGET IT. IT IS VERY POPULAR FOR SWIMMING AND IF YOU ARE NOT IN LINE BY THAT THAT THAT EARLY… YOU CAN FORGET IT. I HAVE WARNED YOU. IT IS MORE POPULAR THAN DISNEY WORLD WITH THE LOCALS BECAUSE OF HOW COLD THE WATER IS. It is a serious cool off place because of the 90 degree heat in the Florida Summertime.
I HAVE SHOUTED HERE. AND I HAVE WARNED YOU. ALSO Learn how to speak Spanish because the Hispanic community knows that this is a cheap attraction. Why? It is only $6 bucks a carload. Yes, I wrote this. It is only SIX BUCKS A CARLOAD AND NOT PER PERSON.
Parking can also be a problem, which is why you get in line very very very earrrrrly. We live in Pinellas County on the West Coast of Florida and I had to get up at 5 am to be on the road early for the hour and 45 minute drive over there to Orlando.
The Water is 65 degrees F. This is the cheapest place to cool off in the Central Florida area.
Enjoy! But I warned you about the car line after 7 am. The park opens at 8 am. So bring something to do while waiting in the traffic and know that it will be worth while to wait.
Florida Springs are our best kept secret . The water in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico are just as hot as the air. This is a better way to cool off in the summer. Trust me, it is better.
Enjoy, but I warned you.
One more thing, I started seeing more and more people from S0uth Florida visiting this time and camping for the weekend.
Enjoy, but I warned you about the line and the waiting before it is open. Get there early and pack light. Hot dogs were only $5.50, which included a drink and chips and they gave me a tray to eat on the grassy area. I had to bring the tray back.
Enjoy, but I warned you about the line to get in. Also bring a tube and a snorkel and mask to see the fish underneath the water.
Enjoy, but I warned you bout the line in the morning.
