Weeki Wachee "The City of Mermaids"

Today I am in Weeki Wachee, Florida, "The City of Mermaids" at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park. This park has been a Florida Roadside Attraction for many years, but was only recently added to the Florida State Park System. They offer "live mermaid shows" several times a day and also host a water park called "Buccaneer Bay". You can rent a canoe or kayak and paddle the Weeki Wachee River. The water is crystal clear and 72 degrees year-round. There are many pretty homes on the banks of the river and it flows into the Gulf of Mexico. You will see many birds, maybe even an Eagle or two and lots of fish. You will also most likely encounter a Manatee or maybe even a Manatee Family along the way. Weeki Wachee Springs State Park is a must see if you are visiting the Central Florida Area.
