I think yesterday’s article “3,700 More New Homes to be Built in The Villages, Florida” set a record for comments, shares and likes. I post my articles not only on my Facebook page but 10 other platforms with national exposure which lead to questions and comments throughout North America. Many didn’t realize the area The Villages cover when I wrote top to bottom about 31 miles it was a real eye opener.
Most of us Villagers have our own turf or area. Many times, our golf carts help us decide our area. Some of you know I live just north of 466 near Spanish Springs, my turf is Glenview to 441 corridors to the Target shopping center back to Lake Sumter Landing. The golf cart is my main transportation in that area and if I need to go to Sawgrass that is why we have a car. Many times, when working with clients that don’t know the area I draw circles on a map around 441, Southern Trace, Trailwinds, Colony and other areas with retail and dining. Next add what you need for recreation, entertainment and social life and you found maybe where you will have your turf.
Let’s put things in their proper perspective, remember 31 miles in the future for The Villages: From Washington D.C. to Baltimore, MD 33 miles, From Philadelphia PA to Wilmington, DE 32 miles, From Stamford, CT to New York City 33 miles. Guessing your turf won’t be all of The Villages.
