These Heavenly Lazy Rivers Make For A Totally Relaxing Short Trip

Let your worries float away at one of these heavenly lazy rivers!

Is there something more relaxing than just floating downstream through crystalline blue waters underneath a lush canopy of trees? Florida’s nature is absolutely breathtaking and luckily for us, Mother Nature had our backs when she decided to bless the local landscape with plenty of beautiful lazy rivers on which we can just let our cares and worries float away for the day. So grab your swimsuit and grab your floaties and get on exploring these delightful lazy rivers around Miami for a totally relaxing outing!

1. Ginnie Springs

Hidden away in High Springs, FL, this stunning natural park of blue lagoons and wondrous underwater caves is waiting for you to explore its crystalline waters. Home to the Devil’s Eye a spooky underwater cave perfect for scuba divers, Ginnie Springs is also an ideal destination for just floating away and paddling. For an extra beautiful view, head on over to where the spring meets the Santa Fe River and the waters change from clear blue to deep amber.

Find it at  7300 Ginnie Springs Road, High Springs, FL 32643. 

2.  Rock Springs at Kelly Park

For an idyllic escape to an Amazon-like forest, check out the Rock Spring runs at Kelly Park. Here the rock springs bubble up from underground rivers feeding a string of swimming holes with warm, crystal clear water making it perfect for snorkelling, swimming, or just stopping to admire the breathtaking views.

Find it at  400 E Kelly Park Rd, Apopka, FL 32712.

3. Blue Springs State Park


This state park in Orange City, FL, is a popular snorkeling and diving destination, but you can also just rent out some floaties or a kayak to spend a relaxing day just floating downstream on its heavenly blue waters!

Find it at 2100 W French Ave, Orange City, FL 32763.

4. Tidal Cove

Ok, so this one technically isn’t a gift from Mother Nature, but it’s still a pretty great option if you don’t feel like leaving the city! Located in Aventura, Tidal Cove gives you the best of both worlds and you can just float away on the lazy river as it meanders through the park’s tropical landscape.

Find it at 19999 W Country Club Dr, Aventura, FL 33180.
