Absolutely one of the finest airports and associations one could ever want. Visit it sometime.

If you are visiting Groveland and traveling with children and teens, Rainbow Pools is fun stop as well as the Public Library that has wifi, a skateboard park and historical museum. After a meal at the Country club I let my kids hit a bucket of balls. Buys me a few minutes of quiet and everyone is happy.
