I have only been to silver springs once in my life, and that was in 1975 when i was 12. It has remained one of my fondest childhoodmemories. I now have grandchildren of my own and plan to bring them to the park. I can only hope that it will be as great a treat for them as it was for me.

Well me and my friend jessica used to go there all the time and when she passed away i go there to just get a way from the day and that when i feel like i am with her because it is so beautiful there you'll never want to leave. And when you need to get away or just go for fun this is the place to go.

We went to silver springs while we were in florida two years ago, and absolutely loved every minute we spent there. It was december, and the colorful lights were really beautiful. I especially loved the glass-bottomed boats. It was amazing to be able to see so deep down in the crystal clear water. We will be back in florida this december, and we are planning to go back to silver springs. It's a 'must see' for everyone!
