The springs were a fun outing to get out of the heat

Every once in a while I dip into the water, but I prefer to lay out in the sun

During the summer months in Florida, it is extremely hot and humid. There isn’t a single place in the state where the temperatures aren’t affected by the sunshine and humidity. I often stay home during the week, because it is impossible to find comfort anywhere without AC. When I go to the grocery store, bank, and laundromat, I do my best to stay cool by choosing places that have a good air conditioning system. The kids don’t like to stay home all day, everyday, so I have to take them on outings at least once a week. The springs near Lakeland, Florida, are a fun outing to get away from the heat. There are lots of places near Lakeland that have water, but I really prefer to go to the springs. Florida has the largest concentration of freshwater Springs in the whole world. There are at least 50 places to swim in fresh cool water that are close to Lakeland. When the kids don’t want to spend the day in the air conditioning, we go to the springs and spend all day there. I pack a lunch, a blanket, and an umbrella. While the kids have fun playing in the water, I relax and enjoy the sun. Every once in a while I dip into the water, but I prefer to lay out in the sun. Temperatures in the springs are around 68° and it can feel like an ice bath even on a hot and humid day. The kids still have a ton of fun and tire out quickly.
