Dubbed the home of pure water, Zephyrhills in Florida was founded in 1910, with the intention of making it a home for Civil War veterans. It gets its label from the Zephyrhills Spring Water Company, who is widely known for its bottled water sourced from Crystal Springs.
Aside from its cattle ranches and citrus farms, this semi-rural community has, in recent years, become a focal point for art exhibitions and community heritage programs, like the Celtic Festival. Two major festivals take place each year: the Founders Day celebration and Christmas Skydive Boogie events. Yes, you read that right. Here, they celebrate Christmas by skydiving.
