The Manatee Spring is a balmy attraction in Florida. Its waters are clean, blue, and as warm as 72 degrees. It is a favorite vacation spot for manatees to wait out for the winter but a lot of tourists now visit this place from time to time. Some lucky tourists can even spot manatees in the area and would allow kayakers to pet them. Just bring a lot of bug repellent when visiting the place.
Ed Leedskalnin’s Coral Castle
Ed Leedskalnin’s Coral Castle is a mysterious castle in Florida built as a symbol of lost loves. It was previously known as Rock Gate Park and was self-built by Ed himself after he was jilted by his sweetheart a day before his wedding. Now the place is a mystery to everyone who visits the place. Some of the stones used to build the Coral Castle are heavier than the heaviest stone in the great pyramid of Gyza. If it was built by Ed Leedskalnin alone, how was he able to do it? In the castle, you can see a rocking chair made of stone, a sundial, and a 500-pound stone table that resembles the shape of a heart.
