WEEKI WACHEE, FL — There’s something almost unreal about the beauty of the Weeki Wachee River. The cool, crystal-clear water flows over rivers of grass and sugary sand, past sandhills and shady hardwood forests as it meandering its way for more than seven miles to the Gulf of Mexico.
It’s one of Florida’s top kayaking trails, and with good reason: It’s beautiful. It’s refreshingly cool even on the hottest of summer days. And it’s suitable for kayakers of all ages and skill levels.
But it’s so popular you’ll want to plan your visit carefully to avoid the crowds.
