First time at Silver Springs.

Another iconic Florida attraction that I was finally able to visit. I may have missed the park’s heyday, but the infamous glass bottom boat rides were still available. The springs were amazing, the history was interesting and the park itself was quaint. Stepping into the park felt like I had stepped back in time. The small strip of shops still open for business included a park history center and a nature museum. The nature museum had the usual things I enjoy…Indian artifacts, bones, skulls and taxidermy. The history center was an unexpected surprise, filled with old signage, merchandise and movie posters. Silver Springs had provided beautiful scenery for quite a number of old movies, including The Creature from the Black Lagoon. This was a nice added treat, as I had no idea the park had that kind of history.
