I'll second that...

Yes, there are idiots to avoid while driving in a golf cart.
But far more in a car some drivers think their either a Formula 1 driver in roundabouts or a NHRA driver when the gate arm rises

Just got back from Disney. Just over 2.5 hours.



A lot of honking and waving...........just a lot of friendly people in Florida.

I don't measure it by miles, but I know that more than thirty minutes straight in a golf cart is too much for me. From our home near Spanish Springs, the trip to Belle Glade is approximately 35 minutes by golf cart, and that is as far as I ever go in the cart.

Agree, a gas cart with good aftermarket seats has no limits within the Villages (Brownwood to Orange Blossem or Mulbury).

The only nitro I use is in my beer...

We take our GC every place we go in T.V. from one end to the other. The only time we don't use it is if we have to leave the bubble. Moved down here 2 years ago and put maybe 4000 miles on our CAR and close to 12000 on our GC. It is air conditioned, heated (rarely need to use those features) wipers, power windows and Sirius XM (as well as street legal so we can get to some areas we can't without SL but rarely need that) there is pretty much no where we cannot go EXCEPT FOR LOWE'S MALL on 466A. No way to get there yet. From one end of T.V, to the other (not yet including Fenney) doesn't take us that much longer than driving and we enjoy the ride. Looking forward to taking the ride to Fenney soon. We can ALMOST but not quite get there now. We get 70-75 miles on a charge (factory lithium batteries) so we have plenty of range.

HAHA! But soon, if T.V. keeps expanding south it may be possible!

Thanks for all the replies. Trying to determine where we want to buy and thinking I would HAVE to be close to a town square. I guess that isn't so.

My longest trip at the moment is from Hadley to the Savannah rec center for Classical Music club. Nearly 7.5 miles and a very enjoyable ride.
BUY EXCELLENT SEATS. Pricy, but well worth it. I put on roughly 100 miles a month.
