Best Lazy River Where the Tourists Can't Get You

Rock Springs Run at Kelly Park

Staff Pick

Rock Springs Run at Kelly Park

400 E. Kelly Park Road, Apopka

So, you've been denied entry to Wekiwa Springs again because it filled to capacity, and the charcuterie in your picnic basket is getting a little too warm. You could go sulk at home – or you could take the chance to explore an area (mostly) devoid of tourists in Orange County at Rock Springs Run. This bubbly spring 35 minutes from downtown Orlando is a secret locals share only reluctantly. Rent a tube on the road before you get there and enjoy the rest of your sun-kissed day floating with friends down this lazy river.
