Homosassa Springs

One of several old Florida tourist attractions that were built around first-magnitude springs, this is now a state park. It showcases native Florida wildlife, including red wolves, Florida panthers, black bears, bobcats, Key and white-tailed deer, alligators, river otters, and many others—all seen by visitors from an elevated boardwalk that winds through their enclosures in a natural setting. The main attraction is the endangered West Indian manatee.
