Silver Springs offers
something other theme parks cannot, and that is Florida in all its natural
beauty. This is due in part to the location of the nature theme park itself.
The 350 acres that make up Silver Springs surrounds the biggest Artesian
Spring formation in the entire world, the headwaters of Silver River. It is
in and around these waters that Florida's endangered panthers and bears, and
the largest alligators make their home. This is home to the world famous
glass bottom boats. This is home to Florida's greatest beauty. Won't you
come for a visit? Billy Boy's makes the visit easy on the wallet.
