40 glorious vintage pics from scenic Florida springs


Tourists think Florida is great because of our beaches, but Floridians know one of the coolest ways to get a tan is to visit one of our state's beautiful natural springs. We raided Florida Memory to see how long we've documented our penchant for lingering in the clear waters at places like Wekiwa Springs, Sanlando Springs, Wakulla Springs, Silver Springs and De Leon Springs, and discovered photos that date back to the 1800s. Enjoy dipping your toe in each of these springs over time.
