This morning we headed about an hour north of downtown to DeLeon Springs State Park for some r&r in nature. The springs were first settled by Native Americans almost 6,000 years ago. Since then it has been a plantation, winter resort and now it’s a great place to spend the day with family. From homemade pancakes made right on your table, to kayaking, to Eco boat tours (and of course the continually 72 degree fresh water) DeLeon Springs is great place to unwind, cool down and just enjoy a day outdoors. This may not be the Orlando you get in a guidebook, but that’s the beauty of it: it’s a hidden gem.
