People love The Villages because it offers just about everything you need a short golf cart ride away.
But that doesn’t mean you’ll never want to venture outside of the bubble.
Florida is an amazing state, and it would be a shame to limit yourself to only experiencing what goes on inside the comfy confines of The Villages.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how far The Villages is from various points of interest.
I used Lake Sumter Landing as the starting point. In 20 or 30 years it might not be considered a central location of The Villages like it is today, but for now, it’ll do.
