There are several water parks in Florida, but none are as distinctive as this one, which is fed by a spring. It's the ideal day trip from Orlando for the fourth of july weekend getaways Within Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is where you'll find Buccaneer Bay. There is a swimming area, a white sand beach, and four water slides. You are dropped into the natural springs by three of the slides. If you don't want the excitement, you can hire a tube and relax along the free-flowing river. For a do-it-yourself excursion, you may also rent a kayak or canoe. If you see a mermaid swimming in the pristine waters, don't be shocked.
