We were at the rest stop north of Macon and asked the information lady where we could get some fresh pecans. She gave us a brochure on Lane Orchards and told us it was about a half hour down the road. We hesitated, but I wanted those pecans, so off we went.
Exit 142 off I75. Fort Valley, GA.
What a neat place, huge, and very clean. Handicap parking. A pirch full of white rocking chairs, so you can sit and eat their delicious homemade ice creams. I'll vouch for the oeach ice cream, simply delicious. They have candies, sauces, jellies, pecans, a gift shop, fudge, ice cream, pasteries, a restaurant. I was surprised at how nice this place was. I would recommend it even if just for a tourist stop.

We were here for the FMCA RV Rally and convention. Rv rallys has been here often because the fair grounds are so accommodating. There were over 2,400 motorhomes in attendance and everything seemed to run smoothly given there was such a large number of units trying to get parked at the same time.

We have frequented this park since moving to the area. There is ample parking, two playgrounds, tennis courts, ball fields, and a splash pad. One of the playgrounds is clearly older and shows it's years of use and abuse. The other is much newer, and that's the one we spend a lot of time on. There are swinging benches surrounding it for parents to sit on, although they leave you rather exposed to the brutal Georgia sun. The splash pad, when operational is great fun. We normally wear flip flops, but I would recommend caution in the newer playground as it's filled with chipped wood. I've never had a problem at a playground before this one, but several sharp pieces of wood have pierced through my tough skin. I imagine with the speed and roughness with which kids play, it wouldn't be hard to get one seriously embedded in a foot. The best part of this park, at least recently, is the Pokemon that have started spawning there. We found just shy of ten Seel there and have been told that prior to the update people were finding Jigglypuff. Seems like it will continue to be a nest of one sort or another.

We were fortunate to see the gardens in peak season. The various camellias were so beautiful. Such planning went into the gardens and the paths made for easy walking. Loved the huge Koi in the oriental garden. A nice way to spent an hour just strolling thru nature.

We stopped here in search of local Georgia pecans, and I'm so glad we did! The staff was so friendly and very knowledgeable about their products. Everything is made on location and they have a very nice selection of pecans, jams, jellies, cakes, pies, cookies, and more. Oh, and everything we got was delicious! We are definitely going back during peach season to sample some homemade peach ice cream.

Historic Downtown Perry

Enjoy shopping, dining and history in the quaint downtown area of Perry, Georgia. Home of Sam Nunn and The New Perry Hotel, this wonderful small town is just glowing with pride and beauty. Enjoy an afternoon stroll in the unique shops on Carroll Street and later enjoy a fabulous meal at any of our downtown restaurants.

Downtown Perry is a nice area. Only about 6 blocks total, there are plenty of shops, restaurants, resting places (benches), and shade. This would be a very nice lunch or dinnertime walk through the area and then stop at one of the restaurants for some excellent food.
