Dating to 1878, the world famous Silver Springs glass-bottomed boats are now operated as a concession within Silver Springs State Park at Ocala. Perhaps, there is a lesson there for Warm Mineral Springs next to North Port.
The 30-minute boat rides showcase the 74-degree springs which feed into the Silver River. Mammoth Springs, the largest of the springs in the park, pumps more than 350 million gallons of water daily. There is a viewing deck at the headspring and paved trails along the river, plus ornamental gardens.
