More Tacky Fabulous than Orlando Can Handle

This place is about an hour from Orlando, but legendary, nonetheless. Before Disney, there was "Weeki Wachee Springs: The City of Live mermaids." It was THE Florida tourist attraction in the 50's. Even Elvis went to see the live mermaid show. Whether for nostalgia's sake or a lack of cash, not much has changed since then. If you are interested in seeing how mermaids hold-up over the years, this is the weekend to check it out. "Mermaids of Past Decades" will be reuniting for several performances and showing off their tricks - like ballet, eating and drinking underwater. If you are a single senior citizen, this could be a great place to find some tail.
