Weeki Wachee Mermaids

We took the kids to see some real live mermaids at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, in Spring Hill, Florida. We got to have our photo taken with one, and watch them put on the play "The Little Mermaid" in there underwater theater. The sad news was the show had to end early because of technical difficulties....my guess is a shark swam up into the spring!
We also got to take a little river cruise and watch an animal show, where we learned about alligators, toads, and snakes that are native to Florida. Then the kids got to pet one of the baby alligators! We just spent a couple hours at the park, which was plenty of time. It was fun, but also a little run down. They do, however, have a mini water park where you can go swimming, but it was over twice as much for admission, so we just opted for the mermaid shows. If I was going to do it again, we'd do the water park and everything.
