We stopped for a quick visit to the Ridge Manor Trailhead on Croom Rital Road I would have loved to walk down to the river but I had my elderly mother with me and she wasn't up to it. They have a paved path, too. I hope to stop again and explore more!

We have done two half-day rides on the Withlacoochee State Trail and it has opened a whole new area of recreation to us. We have walked the trail on its south end, ridden it south of Floral City and now have ridden north from Inverness...MoreWe are happy that you enjoyed your outing on the Trail. We hope you will visit us again.

We stopped here on a Thursday checking out the town, the museum was closed but this gallery was open, nice. What a charming gallery in a lovely southern style home setting. There were many nice, artistic, and talented art work from paintings to jewelry. I did find an elegant sterling earring set with a blue gem. Just the right style and size for me. There were other beautiful earring sets which I had an eye for made by the artist who was helping me, a bit large for me but gorgeous. If you're in the area or nearby, make it point to drive on over and take a look at this charming place. If you have time why not enjoy their cafe; we weren't able to do this since we had lunch plans with relatives.

Ferris Groves

Reviewed By Dawnzo - Trenton, NJ

My friend goes there often and sends me fresh oranges from Florida to New Jersey. I went to visit her and she brought me to Ferris Groves. The store smelled delicious!!! We bought strawberries in season, tangerines, and pecans. They have fresh produce and local gift specialties like Jams and jellies and fudge! I then ordered boxes to ship to my sons in New Jersey. I ordered the petite honey bells and an assortment of pecans. It's a very cool store, with a very long history. I bought post cards that look like the 1960s. Looking forward to visiting again this summer.
