My Trip to Florida
by Tonya Parker
What is there to do in Crystal River?
Another place to go is Tampa. The Florida Aquarium is located there. We went for the first time this summer, and we all had a blast.
My family loves to do one specific activity. The first, we rent a pontoon boat, go on the river, and swim in the springs. Crystal River is named after the crystal clear look of the river. It is filled with lots of freshwater springs. My favorite spring is Three Sisters. This spring actually consists of three springs all located in the same area. If we're lucky, we will also see different types of animals while on the river. We've seen manatees (that will actually swim up to you and play with you), alligators, dolphins, turtles, herons, and many more.
Who visits Crystal River?
Melissa, Tonya, and Trent
My sister, my nephew, and I love our trips to Crystal River.
This crazy guy is my father. He's usually behind the camera because he makes crazy faces like this.
My cousin, Aunt Cathy, and Uncle Neil like to visit, too!
