Five of the closest natural springs to Palm Beach County


Spring season equals time to hit the natural springs!

In Florida, we don’t just have more than 1,000 miles of coastline, but we also have some of the most spectacular natural springs. And lots of them are within driving distance of Palm Beach County.
