I think the key would be where you want to go for medical service. A taxie could probably solve this problem at no more than a car would cost.

I do not think you need a car in The Villages. I am not the average Villager. I shop mostly online and am a person of modest means. You can get almost all grocery items delivered or do curb side pick up at Wal-Mart. Aldi and Publix and Winn Dixie are all within golf cart driving distance from my home. I do own a car, however because I enjoy the beach and the ocean.

You can do without a car if you can stand driving in a Cart during the Bitter Freezing Cold We Experience.

I love all beaches, but my favorites are Cocoa, Playa Linda and Clearwater. You can go ocean or gulf side in about 1.5 hours if you drive like me (fast)...we are almost equal distance to each...

Thanks for all the input, I do realize in certain situations I can park and walk across the street.

I was just under the impression that everything was golf cart accessible and was surprised it's a mixed bag of nuts.

I did take a taxi they other day and I find it's not cheap.

I just find it baffling they just didn't make everything golf cart accessible.

I did take a taxi the other day and one hour waiting each way. Maybe I'll try Uber next time. Thanks again.

There are beach clubs in the villages that schedule monthly trips to beach by bus also.
