Every year, the Cruise-in Car Show is a fun event
Moving to The Villages was one of the best decisions my husband and I have every made. We retired to a world-famous, adult community in Central Florida. The weather is sunny and warm all year round. The community is safe, clean and provides an endless array of ammenities an conveniences. There’s recreational activities, shopping, dinning, organized events, clubs and so much more. My favorite aspect of The Villages is the three unique community gathering places. Each of the town squares are designed around a different theme and host free, live entertainment 365 days a year. Lake Sumter Landing, Spanish Springs and Brownwood Paddock Square are the names of the community hubs. Lake Sumter Landing is located on the waterfront, offering a relaxing setting and gorgeous scenery. Along with free nightly entertainment, shopping and dining, there’s the chance to take a boat tour. Every year, Lake Sumter hosts a chili cook-off, an Arts and Crafts Show, The St. Patrick’s Day Festival and a Cinco de Mayo celebration. The Old Mill Playhouse puts on live theater and there’s an abundance of shops, including Danatyler an Van Heusen. My husband like to visit Amelia’s at the Waterfront Inn or Lighthouse Point Bar & Grille for dinner. Spanish Springs Town Square offers a Southwestern Feel. The tree-lined streets showcase pretty fountains and lead to the Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center and The Rialto Movie Theater. Market Night is held every Monday and Wednesday evening and offers homemade crafts. Every year, the Cruise-in Car Show is a fun event. Brownwood Paddock Square is constructed to recreate a 19th century Cattle Town. The yearly events include the Strawberry Festival and the Antique Tractor Show.
