Hello Aviators! Todays destination is Crystal River and the Plantation Inn Golf Resort. This is a great place to drop in for brunch.   The restaurant, which is located to the back of the Inn, has wonderful views of the gazebo, gardens, pool and river. The inn is just a couple miles from the airport and can be walked, but if you call they will pick you up. The grounds of Plantation Inn are very well manicured and the buildings stately.  I apologize, but at this time we have no information to add regarding lodging or golf.  We hope to get back soon to spend a weekend and discover all this west coast oasis has to offer. The food was really good, the service was excellent and the facility was nicely decorated.  The atmosphere was likewise very pleasant and unhurried. And the price moderate, if I recall, around $20 per person.  This place is a keeper….  When you need a sure thing, this is the place to visit. Did I mention you can swim with and feed manatee’s!!
