Not all aviation museums are alike, but this one in Warner Robins is among the best I have visited (including the Air Force Museum in Ohio). Take the time to see what has been done to a great many of the Air Force flyers. Great history, great displays, and obviously run by very proud professionals who care about aviation. There is a great deal to see and learn here, and you will not be disappointed. Really well done from beginning to end.

Ted Wright Park

Ted Wright has been the place to meet up and shoot some hoops or even hit a few baseballs back in the day and still today is a great place to meet friends. It has been known that in the fall season you just might catch some pee wee football games in the outfields on the weekends.

We were here for the FMCA RV Rally and convention. Rv rallys has been here often because the fair grounds are so accommodating. There were over 2,400 motorhomes in attendance and everything seemed to run smoothly given there was such a large number of units trying to get parked at the same time.

We were at the rest stop north of Macon and asked the information lady where we could get some fresh pecans. She gave us a brochure on Lane Orchards and told us it was about a half hour down the road. We hesitated, but I wanted those pecans, so off we went.
Exit 142 off I75. Fort Valley, GA.
What a neat place, huge, and very clean. Handicap parking. A pirch full of white rocking chairs, so you can sit and eat their delicious homemade ice creams. I'll vouch for the oeach ice cream, simply delicious. They have candies, sauces, jellies, pecans, a gift shop, fudge, ice cream, pasteries, a restaurant. I was surprised at how nice this place was. I would recommend it even if just for a tourist stop.

We have frequented this park since moving to the area. There is ample parking, two playgrounds, tennis courts, ball fields, and a splash pad. One of the playgrounds is clearly older and shows it's years of use and abuse. The other is much newer, and that's the one we spend a lot of time on. There are swinging benches surrounding it for parents to sit on, although they leave you rather exposed to the brutal Georgia sun. The splash pad, when operational is great fun. We normally wear flip flops, but I would recommend caution in the newer playground as it's filled with chipped wood. I've never had a problem at a playground before this one, but several sharp pieces of wood have pierced through my tough skin. I imagine with the speed and roughness with which kids play, it wouldn't be hard to get one seriously embedded in a foot. The best part of this park, at least recently, is the Pokemon that have started spawning there. We found just shy of ten Seel there and have been told that prior to the update people were finding Jigglypuff. Seems like it will continue to be a nest of one sort or another.

Waterford Golf Club is an 18-hole golf course open to the public. Our course is a pleasure for any golfer at any skill level to play and enjoy. The course intertwines with a local housing development, and is very scenic. Close to Warner Robins, Georgia, it provides some wonderful and enjoyable rounds of golf to all ages.

Stopped in on a Sunday morning in early March. Because it was so early in the season, the fairways were still brown, but that did not hinder our day on the course. It is well laid out, and the staff at the club house are all very friendly. The only surprise we found was working our way through the course that includes playing a hole in a housing development. Lots of barking dogs to cheer you on!

Took my 8 year old here today for a walk. We made it from one side to the other. One end has a little playground and an open restroom. The restroom on the other side wasn't open. A lot of it was shaded and allowed for a cool breeze while you walk out of the Sun. Several spots to sit and rest if you need it.

People were great planning and setting up party arrangements for a bunch of 3-4 year old kids. It is a good place to have children's parties without the potential damage to your home. No muss, no fuss, no clean-up. All had a good time and fed well to boot.

Historic Downtown Perry

Enjoy shopping, dining and history in the quaint downtown area of Perry, Georgia. Home of Sam Nunn and The New Perry Hotel, this wonderful small town is just glowing with pride and beauty. Enjoy an afternoon stroll in the unique shops on Carroll Street and later enjoy a fabulous meal at any of our downtown restaurants.

Downtown Perry is a nice area. Only about 6 blocks total, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, resting places (benches), and shade. This would be a very nice lunch or dinnertime walk through the area and then stop at one of the restaurants for some excellent food.
