Rainbow Springs


What is perhaps Florida's most beautiful spring 
is located in a state park about 1 hour north of
Tampa. Framed by tall trees from hillside walk-
 ways the opal-like waters are breathtaking.


In the 1930's the springs were developed as a
tourist attraction with bath houses and access
roads. Later, waterfalls were constructed (one
remains) a small zoo and glass bottom boats
were introduced. In the 1960's more than
100,000 flowers were planted and several
remain today.
