Family Fun
The frenetic pace of a vacation can wear anyone down. Relax while floating down the river tubing in Alexander Springs. Or go on an exhilarating drive through a gator swamp in a monster truck as tall as a house. Follow sand cranes and osprey while cruising the most beautiful waterway in the world. There are plenty of great values and fun activities in Lake County.
