FOR THE FAMILY
For families and large groups looking to embark on an exhilarating experience, look no further than Central Florida Airboats or Bill’s Airboat Adventures. Fly like the wind at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour down the St. Johns River or through the area’s lakes and swamps, and experience the thrill of seeing alligators and other species in their native environments. For close access to hundreds of mammals, reptiles and birds, check out Central Florida Zoo, which also hosts ZOOm Air Adventures, a unique aerial adventure course where you can explore perfect natural habitats from an animal’s perspective — in the air. Traveling from tree to tree by zip lines, rope bridges and suspended disks is thrilling for all ages.
FOR THE ADVENTURER
For those looking to embark on an adventure flowing with excitement, explore the 2,000 freshwater lakes and rivers, which allow for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, boating, hiking and other outdoor activities on wilderness trails and serene waterways. The Wekiva River — which is fed by crystal clear underground springs, is one of the area’s most popular attractions and is federally protected for its scenery, recreation, geology and wildlife. Enjoy Wekiwa Springs State Park’s 6,397-acre compound that hasn’t changed since the Timicuan Indians speared fish in the spring-fed creeks and stalked deer in the uplands. And there’s Lake Jesup, which is famed for having the highest alligator lake population in all of North America
