When I was growing up my family and I would always travel down to Spring Hill, Florida where my grandparent’s lived. One of the places we would always visit on each trip was Weeki Wachee Springs. Not only do they have a water park that is right in the natural springs, they also have boat tours and animal shows. But the real reason that the place is on the map is because of their “live mermaids.”

Weeki Wachee uses the natural springs and created an underwater theatre, being able to use the mermaids to put on shows. The longest running show there would of course be “The Little Mermaid.”

Weeki Wachee is an insanely small city, but it has a great history with the mermaids.
