Wekiva Island is a great place to hang out on the weekend or even a weekday. Along the water you can relax and have a drink or rent a canoe and go down the river. There's a food truck on site if you're hungry.

We reached this place via canoe from the springs. Plenty of room to dock or pull out your boat, it has a small marina, great bar and a hut serving basic, but very good food. There were 15 of us and they coped without issue.
