Life Style

Located in Apopka, just 45 minutes northwest of Orlando, Rock Springs is a crystal clear lazy river that cuts through the dense Florida jungle. The spring water remains 73 degrees year-round. It is the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day!

Visitors can go tubing along the spring run at Kelly Park or launch a kayak from King’s Landing to experience the Emerald Cut (pictured above). If you are really up for an adventure, you could paddle the 8 miles along Rock Springs Run to Wekiva Island for some local food and drinks at the Tooting Otter.

This beautiful freshwater spring is a hidden gem of Florida. It definitely deserves a visit during your next trip to the Sunshine State.
