Video: Chill out with a trip to crystal-clear Three Sisters Springs

Looking for a day trip that will allow you to be outdoors AND cool? Consider a trip to Kings Bay and neighboring Three Sisters Springs. The spring is one of Florida's last remaining urban spring areas, with crystal-clear water that supports a winter population of manatees in excess of 150. In the summer, the water temperature in the springs is a chilly 72. Watch as outdoors guru Terry Tomalin takes you on a paddleboarding excursion in the refreshing springs.
