Located two hours outside Panama City, this gorgeous park is well worth the drive. Experience Florida's flora and fauna, such as the Wakulla Springs' turtles, deer, alligators, and birds. Glide down the parks waterways on daily guided riverboat tours, or maybe a glass bottom boat tour on days when the water is clear. In the summertime, get a break from the scorching Florida heat with nice cool swim. Special to this park is the Wakulla Springs Lodge, built in 1937, that invites you to eat it its year-round dining room, stay the night in one if its guest rooms, or perhaps use one of its large facilities for a retreat. Park admission fees are $4 per vehicle, and $1 for each additional passenger or pedestrian. Check out the website for lodging and tour rates. It is open daily from 8 am.
