    Forget everything you thought you knew about Florida. Over 700 natural springs pepper the north coasts and panhandle, offering up crystalline turquoise waters so pristine that its not uncommon to spot schools of fish or manatees swimming around your feet. Underground caves are perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving, or grab a tube and float the day away (lazy river style) on the calm, cool rivers that connect spring to spring.
