In addition to a manatee sanctuary, Blue Spring State Park is home to many other wildlife. You can go bird watching to see eagles, wading birds and ospreys as well as endangered Florida scrub jays.
Guests can also swim in the cool water of the spring that remains 72 degrees year-round. But be aware that the river and spring are close to swimming between November 15 and April 30 due to manatees congregating.
Florida Caverns State Park
Located just west of Tallahassee, Florida Caverns State Park offers one of the most exciting ways to discover the natural beauty of the state.

The park also protects Native American cultural sites and a unique natural land bridge that was use by Andrew Jackson’s forces during the First Seminole War. It’s a great place for outdoor fun, such as fishing at the Blue Hole Spring and hiking along the Upper Chipola Recreational Trail system.

Big Lagoon State Park
Big Lagoon State Park is more than just a campground, it is a gateway into the natural beauty of Florida. Located along the Intracoastal Waterway, this 655-acre coastal park beckons visitors with swimming, kayaking, fishing, camping and a close up view of nature.
This park is home to a lagoon that attracts flocks of skimmers, ducks and anglers alike. It’s also a popular place for bird watchers due to its diverse natural communities including saltwater marshes, pine flatwoods and more.
The park’s boardwalks and footpaths connect waterfront pavilions, plus a three-story observation tower offers spectacular views of the lagoon and surrounding area. Hike through coastal forests, explore shallow bays and tidal wetlands, or launch your canoe or kayak into the interior lagoons.
