In celebration of National Seashell Day & the First Day of Summer, Authentic Florida travels back in time to our sensational Southwest Florida shelling adventure with "shellebrity" Pam Rambo. Under her guidance, we discovered some of the world's best areas for shelling.
We also share a few shelling tips as well as some of our favorite spots to visit in this stunning part of the Sunshine State.
Florida is blessed with more than 700 springs, the largest collection on earth. From deep within the underground aquifer eight billion gallons of water flow from Florida’s springs each day at a constant, 72-degrees.
So when you're looking for ways to cool down this summer, we suggest visiting one of our 15 favorite freshwater Florida Springs ... especially if you can visit on a weekday when they typically aren't as crowded.
