Manatee Springs State Park

At Manatee Springs State Park in Chiefland, visitors can rent kayaks and canoes to explore Manatee Springs' run and the Suwannee River. In winter, the spring water warms manatees, which spread out into the river and Gulf of Mexico in warmer months. LISA ROBERTS, ORLANDO SENTINEL
