There is a rodeo east on 466a. You can have a “chuck wagon” type dinner and watch a rodeo. It was fun and educational.

You'll also think of him later when you are using that area and are apart.
What a fantastic idea ! How about playing cards and cooking with his mom and dad!

Maybe get the son to read up about all the activities available so he can make an educated plan for himself and his dad. One activity that I think hasn't been mentioned is a pontoon boat tour of the Dora Canal in Leesburg. LOVED that. Also saw people fish there, if they're into that.

Last time our youngest son came down for a visit we experienced a small miracle. We went for a Golf Cart Ride with destination unknown and ended up parking across from The Savannah at that pond on the roundabout. He is a young guy and has been in the Army for 11 or 12 years. He prefers to not speak of his experiences overseas which I respect.

Something about being so relaxed in THE VILLAGES and the beauty of the spot we parked at made him spill his guts. Wow. I just sat and listened in awe about what he had been through since Boot Camp. It was a priceless time that I'll never forget and he said he never felt so good as he did the next day because I listened to him instead of butting in like I do. I even took that statement in stride. So for me, a simple Golf Cart ride and the beauty we were surrounded by and the cleansing talk we had would be the top experience I've had since we found our neighborhood on the Hysterical Side. Thank God Almighty for our home and our family and friends. I feel like I recaptured my relationship with that son that very day.
