Silver Springs Nature Park is the known as "Natures Theme Park" and is most assuredly one of the most beautiful natural places in Florida and quite possibly the world. The huge springs and lush natural landscape are the perfect place to sit and unwind as you cruise the springs in a glass bottom boat or sit in a chair under the towering trees sipping a cold glass of iced tea while the birds sing a sweet song for you.
If sitting down is not enough for you then there are plenty of things to see and do on the expansive property and one could spend the entire day just strolling the grounds and enjoying the wondrous beauty of Florida outdoors or you can take in any number of nature theme shows. From the Ross Allen Island which features a collection of native snakes, turtles, arachnids (spiders), otters and other animals found in Florida to the World of Bears which is the largest bear exhibit of its kind in the world or the variety of Live Shows featuring indigenous Florida wildlife such as alligators, birds and turtles this is a nature lovers paradise.
Everyone who visits falls in love with Silver Springs but locals are blessed to have such a beautiful attraction available to them year round where you can find the regularly scheduled shows and activities along with a great concert series and many other shows and benefit events. Park access is available via reasonably priced day passes or you can grab one of the best deals in town with the year round pass which offers all access to the parks amenities including the best water park in Central Florida with Wild Waters Theme Park.
Silver Springs Nature Park is by far the largest and best attraction in Ocala Florida and a great value for residents and visitors alike. If you ever have the chance to visit Silver Springs then we highly recommend you do so.
