Weeki Wachee is old Florida roadside kitsch at its best. The mermaid show is just as cheesy as you think it will be, and yet deceptively simple—tryouts for new mermaids include a 120-foot dive into the spring, a 300-yard timed swim, and a 10-minute water-treading exercise. Weeki Wachee may be past its heyday, but admission includes the mermaid shows, a wildlife show (featuring a three-legged tortoise named Tripod), and a riverboat cruise. If you’re lucky, the park’s two Mold-a-Matic machines will be in working order, but if they aren’t, ask at the gift shop if they have any extra figurines for sale.

This place is pretty cool. 13 buck to get in, and you get a mermaid show that's pretty awesome. A boat ride, which, well, was glad it was free. Lol. And a Ranger talk with multiple animals. And, it was funny and educational. There are peacocks everywhere and even saw an albino one. You can swim in a small section that is roped off for swimmers. During the summer months, the waterpark is open. (Also included in the 13 bucks). Can't wait to go back for that! There is a beach with sun chairs. A gift shop. And a restaurant. I LOVE this place!
