Thanks to the Floridian Aquifer, the state of Florida has literally hundreds of freshwater springs, 33 of which are first-magnitude. First-magnitude means these springs discharge massive amounts of water which, for us, means they're large enough to swim in. These springs are crystal clear with a nice refreshing temperature of 72-74 year-round. 

Most of Florida's larger springs are north of I4 which runs diagonally from Tampa to Daytona Beach. This is because the Floridan Aquifer is closer to the surface in that area, and runs deeper the more south you go. South Florida residents can easily take a day trip to any of the state's best springs, which are most central. 

Here are some of the coolest and closest springs for residents of South Florida

The Jupiter Outdoor Center is a great place to rent kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes. The center has two locations in Jupiter, one on Love Street directly across from the Lighthouse, and the other in Riverbend Park. Jupiter has evolved into the community it is today based largely on our amazing waterways.

South Florida, particularly Palm Beach County, is known for its Scuba diving. Here are a few of our favorite spots.

Juno Ledge

65-95 feet; drop-off plummets up to 20 feet as you drift with turtles, sharks, tropicals and schooling fish including Atlantic spadefish, grouper and snapper.

King Neptune

55-60 feet; this nine-foot statue of King Neptune and his turtles stands just south of a dramatic ledge with a big overhang large enough for several divers to through.

Loggerhead Reef

55-70 feet; boulders broken off the main reef identify this dive site, with the bulk of the rubble on the west side. Compared to Bahamas diving because of the topography, this area begs to be explored.

Reformation Reef

55-80 feet; cathedral-like blowouts

Resources came from the County's Roadway Production Division in order to counterbalance environmental destruction from the construction of the Donald Ross Road Bridge. 11 acres of red mangroves were planted during the 2016 renovation which have now
