Nestled along the Florida panhandle is the tiny town of Springfield Florida. Springfield is conveniently located close to some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches but its small size means that the town has maintained that intimate small-town feel. Here visitors can enjoy a relaxing vacation, far from the hustle and bustle of Florida’s main tourist spots. Here are some of the best things to see while in Springfield Florida.
Shipwreck Island Waterpark
This family-friendly waterpark is perfect for a fun day out with the family. Here both kids and adults will be entertained and the park features plenty of fun rides and slides, a wave pool and a lazy river. The park is safe with plenty of trained lifeguards standing by to watch over the younger visitors.
Ripley’s believe it or not
Just a short drive outside of Springfield you can see the Ripleys Believe It Or Not museum at Panama city beach.
The museum is filled with eerie and mysterious items from all over the world that make this attraction completely unique. Get lost in the mystery as you tour some of the spookier exhibits. This may not be great for those of you who are squeamish or easily scared but those into the macabre will love it.
It’s no secret that the waters off the Florida coast were at one point home to pirates, buccaneers, and scallywags. Get a taste of the pirate life by taking a pirate cruise on the Sea Dragon, an 85-foot long pirate ship that boasts fun activities for kids and adults. Here you can see dolphins and turtles and take part in water cannon battles on deck.
