This was a very nice course to play. The club house reminded me of Myrtle Beach. The only thing that I did not like, the course had no spark. No imagination, just a plain vanilla course. They are also in the process of clearing a lot of land to put in housing. It does not interfere with play at all.

This is a small family operated alpaca farm offering periodic tours to the community. They also sell items made by others. The owners are quite friendly and very knowledgeable. Alpacas are quite timid and will normally avoid contact with strangers. It was an interesting and an enjoyable time.

Rehabilation center for injured animals, with a broad selection of birds and reptiles, including the manatee.
We could have spent all day here, wandering around but we had a limited amount of time. We had gone to a different location to spot some manatees, but they hadn't sighted any in a while, so we were directed here, which is a place we had originally thought of going to.
A path takes you around the different parts of the park. It is similar to a zoo, but on a smaller scale, with fewer of each animal. All the animals have been injured or had something happen to them where they cannot survive in the wild.
You can view their hippo, alligators, panther, bobcats, manatees, flamingos, eagles, owls, otters, etc. There is a reptile room with various snakes- the handler even brought one out for us to touch. There is also a bird room, where for a quarter you can you get food from to feed them.
They have a pavilion where you can attend talks about animals, as well.
It was easy walking, with wide paved paths, so stroller & wheelchairs could navigate fairly easy. It's a very pretty setting with lots of tree cover & shade too. There are a few snack carts throughout, but they are cash only.
There is a boat tour that is included with admission too, but we missed the last one, which left at 3:30. There is an underwater viewing area however, it was the only thing we found disappointing. We were not able to see anything. I'm not sure if it was due to the water being cloudy or if the windows are cloudy. This is also the one area inaccessible to wheelchairs or strollers- due to going downstairs.
If you spend a large amount of time, there is a dining area up at the front of the building. There are restrooms at the front, as well as some in the back near the reptile house.
There is a trolly that will take you from the main parking lot to the park.
They stamp your hand upon entry, which will allow you to leave & reenter.

Meadows course OK, Oakes Course very nice. Have been to Grill and Tiki Bar several time after golf, always busy, but most times staff is attentive (except when crowded) Specialty nights are fun, but as a rule not very larger portions. Will try and make up for any mistakes by bring something else...of course this will come after everyone has already eaten!

Located at the intersection of SR 41 & SR 200, Directly across from Lake Hernando. New To You is full of all your favorite things you remember from your childhood. Vintage, retro, & some antiques but, lots of very unique items. Something for everyone. Decorate your mancave or divacave. Find great gifts. Whatever it is you collect, there is a good chance you will be able to add to your collection.
This store is amazing. I walked around looking at all memories of my childhood. It's not quite antique. I'm not sure how to describe it, but, defiantly not a thrift store! Very well organized. You can see everything, no digging through stuff. The more you look around the more you see. The owners little dog greets you at the door with a happy bark as if to say come on in & check it out. I would say this is Hernando's best kept secret. I have driven by this place every day for years & have not stopped in but today I had a few extra minutes. I wish I would have stopped in long ago. The treasures are awesome. If you are in the area be sure to stop in & check this place out. The views of Lake Hernando across the street are pretty nice also.

Come have an opportunity to see the great West Indian Manatee in the crystal clear springs at the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge!
Nice set up. Took boat into the area from the main entrance. Enjoyable view, animals. The park has numerous areas, the manatees are always available, a rhino, and the traditional Florida creatures, snakes, pink flamingos, to name a few. Enjoyable afternoon. Like most Florida attractions, very expensive. This one at least was a reasonable presentation.

I have been following Three Sister Springs on Instagram/Twitter for weeks to make sure the Manatees were still in the Springs (something that really helped out!). We went the end of March (March 26) and got pretty lucky as far as the Manatees still being in the Springs, with about 50 visible. There was plenty of room to look without being too overcrowded or feeling overwhelmed by so many people. There was plenty of space to see everything.
The address for the Springs (601 Three Sisters Springs Trail) will take you to the entrance of the Springs, BUT, there is NO PUBLIC PARKING THERE! There is a gate and you will not be able to get through to park. We were advised by the employee that parking around this area is park at your own risk & we didn't want to risk being towed.
We ended up parking at the Three Sister Springs Visitor center (123 NW US Highway 19) and taking the trolley tour over. To get here, it's easier to turn onto 1st Ave and park in the Parking lot. We followed Google directions and turned down 2nd, which was a Police department (the visitor center is on the other side of the building). The trolley stops at the Visitor center stops approximately every 20 minutes and will take you on a small tour through Crystal River and will drop you off right at the entrance to the Boardwalk. Once at the Boardwalk, the trolley will come every 30 minutes. 30 minutes was not long enough to walk the whole boardwalk, the trails and marvel at the animals, so we ended up staying for about an hour.
This was a must on our trip. Unfortunately, we were not prepared to snorkel or do any other water activity, so we just stuck with the boardwalk. Next time we will be snorkeling!
