Most Orlando visitors trek east or west to the state's coastal beaches if they are craving a water adventure. They would be better off at Wekiwa Springs, just a half hour north of the theme park corridor, for cave diving, kayaking, and splashing around in a spring. All you need is a snorkel mask to bask in the beauty of crystal-clear waters bubbling up from a pristine source; canoes and kayaks are available for getting out on the narrow river to spot wading birds, turtles, and, yes, alligators. (Heads up: The water is 72 degrees year-round—downright chilly in the winter, rejuvenating in the summer.) On dry land, there's a fantastic spot for picnicking on the gently sloping knoll that descends to a large swimming area at the spring head. The landscape of oak trees draped in Spanish moss is a window into what Central Florida's landscape was like before the citrus industry and theme parks came to town.—Terry Ward
