Weeki Wachee

Weeki Wachee is actually the name of a town in Hernando County, Florida, but of course everybody uses the term as verbal shorthand to mean the Weeki Wachee Springs State Park, and even more specifically, the singing mermaid attraction that is the park's centerpiece.

Since 1947, this sexy-yet-downright creepy show, in which suburban families from Ottawa queue up in a hallway overlooking a glass aquarium - has enthralled hundreds of thousands. (Mostly the dads.)
