To add on to my recent announcement of Weeki Wachee Springs State Park reopening after nearly an entire year of closures, it seems like people have really missed it.
I journeyed to the park over the weekend on a mission to see all the updates for myself, however, by the time I had arrived around 1p.m. (I'm a late sleeper) it was packed full and the parking lot attendant informed me that they had "sold out of tickets for the day."
While I was sort of bummed that the park is limiting capacity to a specific amount of tickets per day (even after people left) all hope was not lost. Thankfully, I had my Mavic Mini with me which meant I could at least get a bird's eye view of the spring.
It's better than nothing, right?
So, here's what a "full to capacity" Weeki Wachee headsprings looks like!
I'm not at all surprised that the spring was full. This weekend was absolutely perfect for swimming with sun-filled skies and temperatures reaching up to 90 degrees.
Pro Tip: As for anyone looking to make a trip here yourself do note that for the time being that the waterpark is only open on the weekends. The parking lot attendant told me that if I wanted to make sure I "got in," that I should arrive only shortly after opening around 9a.m. on the weekends.
"From March 22-May 29, the waterslides, kiddie pool, and lazy river will only be available on weekends. The waterpark will open full-time for the summer on May 29," according to a post on Weeki Wachee's official Instagram account.
If you want to reserve a spot on the springs for a day, you can do so by booking a kayak rental or even by staying overnight at this gorgeous waterfront Airbnb.
