The Weeki Wachee River of Florida is one of the truly wonderful getaway destinations for anyone who enjoys being out in nature. Located north of Tampa in Hernando County, this river is filled with crystal clear water and provides twelve miles of beautiful scenery and fun activities.
Perhaps the most famous spot on this beautiful natural resource is Weeki Wachee Springs. Here you’ll find live underwater variety shows that star real live mermaids. The submerged Mermaid Theater is a fun place to catch these ladies in a spectacular show, or you can board a river boat to take a group cruise along the river. You can even make arrangements to scuba dive in the Weeki Wachee Springs if you’re part of a dive shop group. Snorkeling—always a fun activity—is encouraged there as well.
