There is a free Villages app that gives directions by car or cart. It includes the new areas.

Google maps gives multi-modal directions in The Villages if you chose walking directions rather than car directions.

When we first arrived in The Villages we used Villages GPS but since it didn't work that well at that time we essentially were with the trial and error method. We learned our side of the operation first and it took a while to get it down but without a GPS I would take a quick look at The Villages Map which can be bought at any Mercantile Store for $5.00. This is your key to getting the lay of the land.

There are also 3 Pools on our side. South Side Adult Pool has a Hot Tub and is the furthest away from the area you described and was tough to find for many people we know. The next is the Paradise Family Pool which is fantastic, music played all day and little kids with pool toys, most people enjoy being around such lively action and then Hilltop Pool Adult Pool.

Many people learn their way around by trial and error and when you first get here you think you'll never get to know your way around. One of the most relaxing things to do is take a trip around with destination unknown and see the sites. It's the greatest you are gonna love it.

Remember to check out and do the necessary paperwork to obtain your Homestead Tax reduction if you will be a Florida resident. There is a time limit and I don't remember exactly when it is. If I had to Guess I would think it is the end of March. A really nice savings.

After you are here for 6 months all this chatter about turn here, go there, will be all unnecessary. That is unless you cannot recall what you did yesterday.
Getting lost is not a sin and besides if lost, you will meet some great people.
Don't worry…..be happy.

But that doesn't include golf cart tunnels, which (again, as far as I know) are not for pedestrians.

Pedestrians are not banned from cart tunnels. Now you know...…………….

Google maps does include the tunnels if you put in bike mode.

Ah, that won't help us then. Our closing is March 1 and we won't be living there for a few months after that. Such is life. Regardless, the property tax down in Florida is much more affordable than up here in CT. We have a very small home (1008 living space plus basement and detached garage), in the burbs on 1/2 acre of land, and I believe our current tax bill will be just over $4000. So even without the exemption we'll be living easier.
