Plan Your Visit
When planning your trip to the Weeki Wachee River, choose your season first, followed by the accommodation, the place you want to stay.
After making your hotel/motel or camping reservations, you can create your To-Do list and fill it with a multiple of recreational activities the area has to offer.
Floria has mainly two seasons: an oppressively hot & humid summer and a winter with great daytime weather, but with cooler nights. The best times to visit are April/May and September/November, when both day-and nighttime temperatures are delightful.
In a 5-mile radius, Hernando County offers 8 hotels/motels
and 4 campgrounds
. Furthermore, many local casual dining establishments will keep you and your family well-fed.
Weeki Wachee is probably best known for its spring and her mermaids, that have been performing here since the 1940’s. At least as good is the river that flows from it on a 7-mile journey to the Gulf. Within a short distance, there are many opportunities for easy dayhikes, moderate kayak trips or a lazy day at the beach. More activities »
