Butterfly Rainforest & Florida Museum of Natural History & Art Museum at Univ of FL in Gainesville. Took our 16 & 18 YO Grandkids and they loved it. I thought it would be booooring but the B'flys were great and the museum not too bad. Lots of restaurants in the area as well and since it is a major college campus they'll have lots of guys to look at.

Please tell them to respect the golf cart for their own safety. Rides are great to enjoy. Pool hopping can be fun. So many to choose from! Polo, pickleball, tennis, practice putting greens, so much to do.

Rest assured we will do everything possible to keep her safe on the golf cart and elsewhere - her Mother would hunt me down if anything happened to her . She has been raised to know right from wrong, she goes to school, she works, she has paid off her car, she has flown a plane in Alaska, she has fished for Halibut in Alaska. She already has TV GPS for the golf cart on her phone. She is buying her own tickets for the trip to TV. We will watch her like a hawk!!!!

Sounds like a young lady of whom to be very proud. You might want to suggest mystic ice cream -- check the website -- some nights are trivia, some are Karaoke. An inexpensive way to pass a couple of fun hours and enjoy delicious ice cream including some "adult flavors".

Our grandkids always like to go to Trivia.

Send snacks with them. I forgot first time and their tablemates shared, but....you know.

Appreciate any help please.
Check this: There is a beginners chess club, only for beginners at Pimlico Recreation, on Belvedere, on Thursdays 11:30, 1st and third, so 3/7/2019 is available. No experience required, learn to play chess. This opens a new door to thinking and great concentration, fun. Every one welcome.

Cat boats on Mt. Dora, about 2 hours. Lots of fun driving the small boats. Kayaking on Rainbow River near Swampy's in Dunnellon. About 2 hours on the river, easy current - my 13 year grandson had no problem with his own kayak.

I bet she already has found fun things to do in TVs! My grandkids will be here in a couple of weeks. They, I am sure, have their plans for me! Enjoy

Mad


Lots of good ideas here.


I'm always surprised how Teen's and Twenties like to watch the old people at the Squares. They love to know their Grands can have fun at their ripe old ages.


It's fun to know the Young'ns like our music.
