We visited the Weeki Wachee State Park in Florida yesterday. What a great day. This is a wonderful trip for all age groups. We saw the mermaid show which was very entertaining and we also went on the boat trip. The guide for the boat trip was most informative. We had lunch at the park and we were pleasantly surprised...

We visited Weeki Wachee last week when the weather was supposed to be sunny but chilly, so we didn't bring anything to swim in and were very sad when it turned out to be 80 degrees and the beautiful water was just calling our name! The mermaid show was very cool, and the animal show was informative. The boat ride... More

The place needs an update, but overall it's quite amazing. The mermaid show was fun for the kids, my daughter couldn't stop talking about being a mermaid when she grew up. The kids had a blast on the water park side, and it's pretty neat how they incorporate the river in the park. It was a lot of fun and... More

It was a dreary day and my husband and I were staying in the Orlando area. I remembered going to Weeki Wachi as a child and my husband had never been there. It is about a 2 hour drive, so I wouldn't make this trip unless you had nothing else to do. The children that I saw there seemed to... More

This is definitely a bucket list destination for Baby Boomers and it did not disappoint, as long as your expectations are realistic. It is hokey, kitschy, a bit tacky and absolutely terrific. Very laid back and nostalgic. We loved every minute of it. It may not be Cirque de Soleil, but it doesn't pretend to be either. The boat ride... More

The girls 9and guy) that are in the show have to be in great shape; performing in a constant 5 mile an hour current can't be easy. We had a lot of fun and after the show you can take pictures with one of the mermaids.

Growing up in Florida, it is easy to take parks that offer shows and entertainment for granted. I did just that with this place for too long. It is not extravagant and it is very affordable. The price of a state park and you can enjoy a peaceful day meandering through tall trees with a crystal blue Weeki Wachee river.... More

We call ahead to make reservations for single kayaks, and the gentleman said no need to do that on a weekday. Well, everyone decided to go kayaking that day and there were no more singles left. We use double kayaks and they gave us the price for singles. That was very considerate. The kayak was very comfortable. The trip was... More
