Wekiwa Springs State Park
With all of Orlando's faux-inspired attractions, it's refreshing to get out into the wild nature of the real Florida during visits to this wonderful state park north of downtown and the theme park corridor. The park is spread across 7,000 acres of pristine central Florida forest and centers around the headwaters of the Wekiwa River, a beautiful blue and green-hued spring where a roped off area is safe for swimming (alligators do dwell out in the main river). You can rent kayaks and canoes at the park for paddling from the spring out into the river, where you may spot turtles and alligators sitting on the banks. The park also has a wonderful campground with spacious campsites offering both a primitive experience and hookups for electricity and water.
