DeLeon Springs is an all-day trip for all ages. There are many things to do, regardless of the temperature. When it is hot you can take a refreshing soak in the 72 degree springs, rent a paddle boat or canoe, and enjoy the nature walk. In the winter time, you may just see a manatee.
I suggest arriving here on a Saturday or Sunday, enjoying the pancake breakfast, packing a picnic lunch, and renting a canoe. The park is open from 8am to sundown. DeLeon Springs is a must see and a great getaway from the hustle and bustle of Orlando. See the true Florida.
