When you are a grown-up, with kids of your own, it's nice to recreate memories of your childhood. When Scott was a young lad, his family camped at The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park. So, we made a pit stop to explore the park with Colten and Kate.
Scott says the park has changed quite a bit over the years. A new cafe and music hall were added. However, the park still offers access to the Suwannee River.
During our stay, we wanted to tube down a river. We attempted to visit Ichetucknee Springs, but it was already at capacity. We're not early risers, so we missed the 7 AM line to get into the park. Then, we tried Gilchrist Blue Springs, Florida's newest state park, but it was also at capacity. We didn't even try Ginnie Springs, there were several cars parked outside the entrance waiting for their turn to enter. We ended up tubing down the Sante Fe River off of a boat ramp we passed driving down Highway 47. Needless to say, if you want to see a spring-- go early!
