VIDEO: Meet the Mermaids of Weeki Wachee Springs

Published:

My girls are in love with anything to do with mermaids. So I knew it would be a special day when we arrived at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, home to the world famous mermaids. Known as one of Florida’s original roadside attractions, it is located an hour north of Tampa.

Mermaids have called Weeki Wachee Springs their home since 1947 and perform multiple shows throughout the day, including their version of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid.

I loved watching my girls’ eyes light up when that curtain rose in the theater and the mermaids swam out. It was a magical moment.
