Default Shopping

Hi, I am looking for shopping malls near The Villages that a 16 year old girl would LOVE . I don't want to drive the interstate and wonder if anyone can help me. We are in TV for March and April and can't wait. My niece and her Mom (my sister) are visiting in March and I need ideas for shopping of course. Thanks.

You can shop till you drop in TV. If you are looking specifically for malls, I guess Ocala's Paddock Mall would be closest. It is accessible by county roads or the interstate.
Have fun while staying in TV.

Lakeside Mall on 441 in Leesburgh, about 35 - 40 minutes on secondary roads. No highway driving required. Actually, you can go anywhere without highway driving if you have a good map and the time. Try visiting Mount Dora it's on the map via 441.

The Seminole Town Center Mall near Sanford would impress the fussiest teen.
About 45-60 min via 441 south to 46 east.
Right where I-4 crosses 46

Thank you...am not sure there is "stuff" for a teemage girl in TV itself. We were there for a few days last year and I loved it but...I don't think it's for a teenager.
I looked into Seminole, Altamonte and Florida malls. All great for her.
Questions re the driving...Looks like I need to drive 27, 441 a lot, and 46,423 and 436... are they busy roads, divided full of trucks etc ? I ask b/c I am used to ordinary roads in Ontario and am nervous about freeways. Thank you to anyone who can give me advice.

If you stay off the interstates, it's not too bad. I've seen very few big rigs on 441/27 and I'm on it a lot.

Just go at off hours -- late morning to early afternoon. While there isn't a tremendous amount of commute traffic, there is some.

Hwy 46 to Seminole mall is a 2 lane road for the most part. Becomes divided near the mall. No big rigs to speak of.

It's not that close, but it's not far either. And every 16 year (and me!) will go nuts over this mall. It has all the designer names. (I'm sure she saw The Devil Wears Prada) It's absolutely beautiful and incredible restaurants. Have fun! :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:
