BEAUTIFUL NATURAL SURROUNDINGS
Located in Florida’s famous "Nature Coast", the Rainbow Springs area has numerous crystal clear springs, one of which is the headwaters for the Rainbow River. Considered one of the most pristine and beautiful rivers in Florida, the Rainbow River and the area around it, known as Rainbow Springs, is a popular destination for nature lovers.
Native wildlife and vegetation thrives all around this popular waterway often populated with people floating by on inner tubes. Fishing is great and there are multiple nature trails and hiking trails as well as aquatic trails accessible by kayak or canoe. The Rainbow River runs into the Withlacoochee River, one of only a handful of rivers in North America that flows north.
The Rainbow Spring itself is surrounded by the Rainbow Springs Park, a botanical wonderland with picnic, recreation, and designated swimming area. From the 1930's to the 1970's the area was actually a theme park with a zoo, glass bottom boat rides, gondola / monorail system and even a submarine ride. The relics of the old zoo are still visible today.
Throughout the park, wonderful birding opportunities are available on all of the Nature Trails and along the river. A guided bird walk is offered during certain times of the year.For more information about the homes for sale in Rainbow Springs or to build a new home in Rainbow Springs, contact us today!
