I wonder how many times the airport shuttle will have to stop before it gets to Lake Sumter? When we bought, LSL was the first stop.

Hey, maybe they'll eventually put in a light rail that runs all the way from Spanish Springs to the airport(s)! I can dream...

Already it's WAY too far to go by golf car from the southern to northern end or vice versa, even if all the bridges and tunnels were in place. A lot of Villagers would rather not have to drive their cars, so a good little light rail system would actually make a LOT of sense here.

Bought in Bonita 2009 one of the last areas to be built so we were told. A few months later land was being cleared S/O 466 A. Then the story continues. Key West is a long ways away well maybe not. Where you live is where you feel happy. Don't want to be to close to a major road and huge shopping area look inland away from it. More stores and shopping will be coming be patient. As for Golf Courses etc they to will come in time. Your here to relax and enjoy life. Sit back and enjoy the ride,

Thank You for your reply! I am using the Villages app every day but the map is not very good at identifying the names of the Villages. I actually have made my own make and make notes on it. I will check the website to see if it’ any better.

Thanks Again!

I’ve been here 5 years now and I love The Villages, but this is still something I just don’t understand. Why, oh why, unless you’re going to and from a golf course, would anyone prefer to drive around The Villages in a golf cart rather than in their comfortable, climate controllable car?

Really?

A couple miles to a square. A short ride to a sunset watching spot. A quick drive to a rec center to play billiards. Those times...among many other reasons...scream for a fun golf cart ride.
