Summer Fun Bucket List

Get outside and explore this summer!

Hit the Springs

Poe Springs is one of many springs along the Santa Fe River in High Springs, FL. 

Zip Line through the Canyons

Located in Ocala at the Canyons Zip Line and Adventure Park is the state's longest zip line that takes you soaring 1,150ft high above a spring-fed lake.

Host a Pool Party

If you are lucky enough to have your own pool, then this makes a great at-home activity. If you are not so blessed, you can host your pool party at Black Prong Equestrian Village where you can rent a cabana, relax in the beach entrance pool and grab a drink from the tiki bar on the weekends!

Plan an over-the-top picnic

Grab your friends and book a picnic with PiknicGNV at Depot Park for sunset! Packages can be set up at any local park.

Have a Beach Day

Fort Island Beach is a small beach on the gulf coast in Crystal River with lovely sunset views, picnic tables, restrooms and a long pier to walk out and spot wildlife.

On the opposite coast, Crescent Beach is a popular destination for beachgoers in the St. Augustine area. Located right off the historic A1A, there are plenty of shops and restaurants to explore.

Tube Down the River

Ichetuckneee is Florida's best river for tubing, with lots of options to rent tubes and shuttles to take you to the drop-off point and bring you back to your car.

Visit the UF Bat Houses

Visit the world's largest occupied bat houses and see the bats emerge at night! Watch as over 450,000 bats depart for an evening of hunting insects. 

Tailgate a Polo Match

The Ocala Polo Club has a Saturday summer series that is fun and educational to watch.
