The Best Swimming Holes to Visit on Your Summer Road Trip
The summer is the perfect time to travel north to escape the Florida heat and cool off in some of America’s most refreshing southern swimming holes. Whether you pack up the car, the camper, or the RV, it’s worth a summer escape!
Devil’s Den, Florida
On the way from Fort Myers to Devil’s Den, road trippers have plenty of opportunities to cool off at a variety of natural springs and even swim with Manatees in Crystal River! Make sure you bring along any gear you might have, as Devil’s Den allows scuba diving and snorkeling. In fact, its peaceful, open area makes it the perfect location for a dive training facility. Diving in the ancient springs, there is a clear view of fish while scaling Florida’s aquifer foundation. (Florida is essentially a large piece of limestone!) The Devil’s Den has lodging and restaurants nearby, which is great after working up an appetite exploring the waters all day.
