Resident/Visitor Comments:
"This City speaks-Well planned, friendly-from the heart.  Managed/planned Restoration, cleanliness, small comfy town.  That is what it speaks.  Walk the parks-woh; bike paths-kudos.

"Lake Henderson and the connected lakes and tributaries of the Tsala Apopka waterwary are quite simply the most beautiful (rowing) training venues, and I have never experienced such a naturally perfect training environment as you have at your doorstep.  The weather is ideal, the water is flat calm and clean, the wildlife is spectacular and boat traffic is minimal....Off the water, the venue is equally perfect.  After our morning sessions, we walked into your beautiful town to enjoy great breakfasts & lunches.  The pedestrian and cycling proximity to downtown is unparalleled.  I could not have imagined a more convenient situation, not to mention the adjoining Withlacoochee trail for safe running or cycling to cross-train or to commute to accommodations.  A defining element of our visit-the team at ROCCS... welcomed us with great enthusiasm and generosity.  Thank you Inverness, for sharing with us your lovely town and lake.  We miss you already and we will be back again next winter."
