• Silver River State Park - Ocala, Florida

      With miles of excellent hiking trails and a wide variety of wildlife, the park is a nature lover's delight. Rent a canoe and paddle up the river to its source, a deep spring pool located next to the visitors center and a 'cracker village' museum. The crystal clear warm water of the river was used for filming scenes from the old Tarzan movies with Johnny Weissmuller, as well as many other film and TV series.

      If you go:
      It's quite possible that you'll spot some monkeys skittering through the trees, but these are not, as legend has it, descended from monkeys used in Tarzan.
