Where are The Villages?
You’ve heard of it. The Villages, Florida’s friendliest hometown. Did you know though, how well placed The Villages are as a destination vacation resort? On top of all the activities inside this active adult community, a short drive in any direction will take you to a plethora of other Florida vacation destinations.
Just an hour’s drive to the West is the town of Crystal River, Florida. If you like wildlife, and water, you are in for a treat. Visitors come from all over the world in the cooler months to see the manatees. Over 75% of the US population of them reside in Crystal River in the winter. The warm water of the springs brings them in each year. You can stand on the sidewalks of the bridges and watch their underwater parades. Or you can take one of many boat tours and snorkling tours to get up close and personal.
To the east just over an hour are the beaches of the Altantic. Daytona Beach, Ormond, New Smyrna. To the northeast you can even visit old town St Augustine. There’s so much to do and see, you might want to make this one an overnight trip.
To the south, Disney, Seaworld, Universal Studios, Legoland, and the list goes on for world class attractions. Over to the southeast, you can also take a great carribean cruise out of Port Canaveral. To the Southwest you can vistit the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa.
