There are few places on Earth as well known for their mermaids than Weeki Wachee Springs on the Gulf Coast of Florida. I was fortunate enough to go there the other day see their World Famous Underwater Theatre Show. The show changes every once in awhile. Right now their main show is Hans Christian Anderson's The Little Mermaid.
Besides seeing the shows and taking the remarkably peaceful Riverboat Cruise, I was able to hand a couple of the mermaids their own copies of Third Grade Mermaid. Just being able to thank them for inspiring generations of future mermaids personally was worth the trip.
