Whether you are in the mood for Cajun or Chinese Inverness has your favorites. Casual seafood lunches can be found at Stumpknockers on the Square. Do not let the odd name make you pause; the best fried catfish sandwich in the city is waiting here with a side of crispy fries. Lakeside Bar & Grill is a hidden gem for French and traditional American food. Sit on the patio and enjoy the breeze while you sample the roast duck breast and goat cheese salad. For breakfast, amble to Joe’s Family Restaurant for generous helpings served with a smile.
Make Friends While Ha
Inverness is home to some hand-clapping, laughing good times at its community festivals. The last weekend of every October is the Great American Cooter Festival. The festival gets its name from the cooter, or freshwater, turtle, the most common species in the region. This two-day, family-friendly event packs in plenty of games, crafts, and music. If that is not enough, November marks the annual Festival of the Arts. More than 100 artists exhibit in the fine art show, culminating in a contest judged by a fine arts committee. There is art of every medium to admire and purchase at this event.
Bike, Boat, or Canine
Those people up for a walk or hike through the woods will love the Withlacoochee State Trail. Running between two crystal blue lakes, the winding trail gives visitors access to 46 miles of biking, hiking, and walking enjoyment. You do not have to leave your beloved pet out of the outdoor fun either, when you take it to Bark Central Dog Park. Let your pet run wild in this clean dog park, which features off-leash areas with secure fences. If you want to explore the quiet depth of the nearby swampland, go on an airboat tour.
