Local springs are cooler than being cool Aug 13, 2017 - Forget slimy June grass and sandy feet. Forget your eyes stinging from the saltwater or searching desperately for a parking spot. Instead of heading to the beach, head north and take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear springs.

Babymoon Trip to Falling Waters and Ponce de Leon Springs May 7, 2015 - Travis had Monday and Tuesday off this week so we decided to take a day to go do something fun as a mini-babymoon. A babymoon is a newish trend where couples go take 'one last hurrah' vacation before the newborn comes.
Ponce De Leon Spring State Park Dec 6, 2014 - We heard about Ponce de Leon Spring State Park, just a bit over an hour's drive away from us, and decided it was worth the trek. The weather looked good for the weekend, with the lingering days of Indian summer, 70s & mostly sunny.
