Ponce de Leon Springs Pancakes

It really is a 2 hour wait, but it is right at the Springs. Check in as soon as you arrive and go off and play until they call your name. You can take a boat trip, rent kayaks/canoes/paddle boats, swim in the spring and hike.

Ponce de Leon Springs Pancakes

An original Florida roadside attraction that had its heyday in the mid-1950s. Today it is a state park. The best part is the Old Spanish Mill Restaurant. They serve all-you-can-eat pancakes that you cook on a griddle in the middle of your table. Reservations not accepted. Expect a 90 minute wait.
