Default How Crowded?

If in the heart of Snowbird Season The Villages population is approximately 110,000 people, I was wondering what percentage of that most populated season is here during the following times:
1) November/December
2) September/October
3) Summer

Just taking a guess:
1. About 75,000.
2. about 75,000.
3, About 70,000, (some people don't want to stay in the hotter summer months).

I respectfully disagree. You will see the traffic drop off a lot first of April.

Remember that during the high season, year rounders have a lot of company too.

We will get the ordinary crowd at Publix on 466 then too.

I think you have been here longer than us, Rubicon. We have been Villagers for eight years, now Frogs for three.

I have lived here for 3 years now. The overcrowding question is the same everywhere in florida where people want to be in the winter. I have spent time in Ft. Lauderdale, tampa, the keys, panhandle, and ft. Myers area. All are very crowded in the winter. The situation here is actully better than south florida. I have also noticed that after april, till about October I have no trouble going anywhere to dine out, swim or go off campus to shop.All in all this place is the best all times of the year, for my wife and i anyway.

I agree. The Villages is at capacity between January and March. April you see a change and traffic is slightly less. Definitely you will see a dramatic change in traffic and crowds after May.

I have to agree with you. Even in season we are lucky to be here in TV. And after April 1 it is just a dream here.

Overcrowding is prevalent here in Florida especially close to the coast. From Tampa south there are developments that extend as far 20 miles inland. One thing we like here is the distance between homes. The closest allowed is 20'. Also this is the only golf development we've seen with a 24 hour guard. Very quiet here. But lots to do! Today we are taking the historic boat ride around Sarasota Bay..

I believe that number was promulgated prior to the Fruitland Park expansion, and the recently announced northern expansion.

Crowded - late fall, winter, early spring.

Less than crowded - the remainder.

Overcrowded - ehh, only if that's your mindset.
