Default Villages Trivia

This is such a unique community it begs to have its own trivia analysis.

I know we set a Guinness record with the golf cart parade. It was set in 2005 with 3,391 golf carts participating. Maybe we should go for breaking our record now that we have grown. Any posters participate?

Does someone out there know:


How many miles of golf cart paths are in the Villages?

How many golf cart tunnels are there?

How many golf cart bridges?

How many private swimming pools in the Villages?

What is the life span of a Villages lovebug? or, How many days out of the year are they really annoying?

Did Universal Studio planners design the town centers?

I don't know the answers but I would like to find out. Anybody have bits of trivia or answers to add to the brew?

Anybody but my wife think I have way too much time on my hands this afternoon?

Tal, I have faith ... you'll find the answers within the next week.

Until then, we'll just patiently wait for the two of you to prove you have nothing else to do.

Lovebug trivia from internet:

"Two flights of lovebugs occur each year. The spring flight occurs during late April and May. A second flight occurs during late August and September. Flights extend over periods of 4 to 5 weeks. Mating takes place almost immediately after emergence of the females. Adult females live only 2-3 days. "

Now if we could just nail down how many miles of cart path in The Villages, it just might be another record.

There is one golf cart bridge and my neighbor said he counted 25 tunnels one time, not much help. These might be some good questions to write into the Daily Sun about

there may be only one golf cart bridge over a major road(441) but there are many over waterways in tv.
i'll leave it to someone else to get out their map and start counting. bridges and tunnels.
i imagine the highest bridge will always be the original one crossing 441 and the longest tunnel the one under 466 from southern trace to belvedere.

The Villages put a cap on the number of golf carts that could be in the parade. Safety concerns with having more.

84 miles? That's going to be a lot of driving, if I want to make driving all of them my next big project. :joke:

Thank you for nailing that down Steve....the Village trivia list is building. That cart path miles thing should be a good barroom bet....not that I hang out in barrooms.

Is that 84 miles one way or two ways? That's very important if I'm going to measure it in my golf cart tomorrow with just one tank of gas. ;D
