Day trip to the Blue Spring State Park

Hi Fashionistas,

We just got back from Florida and since we did so much I am going to separate my blog post into segments each featuring a different topic.

Traveling during a pandemic is definitely different. I thought wearing a mask on a five-hour flight would have been tough but it wasn’t so bad after all. My bag was filled with hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes which came in handy when we jumped on the plane and in the rental car.


Typically November is a great month to travel to Florida because the Hurricane season is over and sunshine waits for you at the airport. But this is 2020 everything is different. Hurricane ETA decided to hit the coast of Florida bringing rainstorms and strong winds. Our trip to the Bahamas was canceled so instead we drove to the Blue Spring State Park. 

The morning started rainy and windy but we drove about 2 ½ hours towards Orlando to visit the State Park. The sky cleared up and the sun came out. The entrance fee to the park was $6 per vehicle, and you can spend all day there.

We decided to go hiking through the park all the way to the spring. The short hike takes you through a canopy walk with beautiful views and many picture opportunities. We also spotted a gator laying on a branch soaking in the sun.  

Later that day, we decided to jump into the crystal clear water of the river to go snorkeling. At a constant 73 degrees, the water was warm enough to jump right into it. 

Besides snorkeling, you can also go diving and kayaking at the Blue Spring State Park. During the month of November through April, you will find manatees here. These mammals return back to the springs to stay in the warmer waters. 

If you are in the Miami or Orlando area be sure to stop by the Blue Spring State Park - it's a must!

Thanks for stopping by!
