Wakulla Springs Mentioned in New York Times Article
When talking about Wakulla Springs, the article is quoted as saying “When imagined from the eye of the north-eastern winter, an hour or two soaking in crystal-clear, freshwater spring sounds extra sweet. You can cannonball in the deepest spring in the world (Wakulla Springs, just 15 minutes south of Tallahassee).”
Not only is it the largest and deepest freshwater spring, but several iconic movies were also filmed in and around these waters, including MGM’s 1941 Tarzan, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Night Moves, and Airport ’77.
If you are looking for a place to wash off your winter and want to jump into a historic, scenic, and fresh Florida spring, head over to Wakulla Springs in Wakulla County.
