Rainbow Springs State Park
This video shows a brief look around the "day-use" area of Rainbow Springs State Park. This park was originally opened in the 1930s as a privately owned theme park. A zoo, rodeo, several gift shops and a monorail with leaf-shaped gondolas were once a part of this attraction. The doors were closed in 1974 but the place was reopened as a state park in the 1990s and you can still see remnants of an earlier time. It now offers a beautiful spring area to which visitors can enjoy the 72 degree water year round! Take a look if you enjoy these type of parks!
Welcome to Florida and Beyond. Our goal is to show all of the amazing sights and scenery this place has to offer. While much of our focus is within Florida, we will expand “beyond” as we plan to travel wherever possible, sharing every exploration.
