Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park#5 in Best Things To Do in Tallahassee
The freshwater at Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park is so clear in some parts that you can see some 100 feet below you (hence, the site's glass-bottom boat tours). On dry land, you'll find that plenty of wild turkeys, white-tailed deer and American alligators call the park home. In a nutshell, there's plenty to see, do and experience at this 6,000-acre wildlife sanctuary, as seen from three nature trails or while exploring the jungle-like waterways.
Past travelers recommended the boat tour but warn that it only runs periodically since the proper weather and water conditions are required. Additionally, visitors said bathing suits and bug spray are a must when going to the park, since ticks are common along the nature trails and the water is perfect for swimming despite its chilly temperature.
Just 16 miles south of Tallahassee, the park is open every day from 8 a.m. to sundown. Admission costs $2 per person, $4 for a single occupant vehicle and $6 for a car with at least two passengers. Boat tours cost $8 for adults and $5 for children 12 and younger. They run when whenever the spring's water is clear. For more information on activities and lodging, visit the park's website.
