Welcome to Springs Traveler!

After months and months of traveling to the springs close to Orlando, falling in love with them again and again, and planning this site in my head over and over, I've gone and broken ground on it.
Springs Traveler is a site that aims to cleanly and easily aggregate information from the many scattered sources out there into one simple source. On each page, fellow travelers will be able to see a wealth of photos, up-to-date park information (including fees and times), maps and directions to the spring, links to nearby springs and other resources, and tagged lists of available facilities and activities.
What makes this site so exciting to me, both as an avid web designer and a springs traveler, is the flexibility of the back-end system. Click on any of the activities and you'll get a list of all springs sporting that activity! Want to search the site? Use the search bar located clearly at the top of the page. Find an error on any page? Leave live feedback!
As this site is built, I plan on including a forum, spring ratings, the ability for visitors to review springs and leave general comments, and even allow visitors to share their own photo collections. This may take some time (this is only a hobby after all!) but rest assured I'll try my best to make this site work for everyone.
Again, welcome, and enjoy the site! Safe travels!
