  • This film follows a Florida family on a boat trip excursion up the scenic Suwannee River. The vacationers start their journey at Cedar Key and stop along the way at several scenic spots, including Manatee Springs State Park, Fanning Springs and Rock Bluff Springs. They also view several sunken riverboats, including the Senator Robert L. Ulee and the City of Hawkinsville, as well as the Richmond, a sunken Confederate gunboat. Their trip ends at the Stephen Foster Memorial in White Springs, where they visit the museum and enjoy a ride on the Belle of the Suwannee, a small-scale riverboat for park visitors. Produced by the Florida Development Commission.
