Information Trolley


Because so many people visit the three "hometowns" of The Villages, this trolley makes its rounds to provide up-to-date information on The Villages. This particular one was set up early evening in the square in Lake Sumter Landing.

RJ Gators Restaurant - Lake Sumter Landing



The interior was mostly bereft of patrons


Even the bar, usually a busy place, was silent


The people were outside on the veranda overlooking the water.

A guitarist/singer was providing the entertainment.

He was so loud that it hurt one's ears just to walk nearby.

We had our meal inside where it was quiet.  That's where I took the first two shots!

Hanging Around


Sometimes if you hang around too long you get caught. Or maybe it's the other way around?

Crashed Sailboat


Those who live in The Villages or surrounding areas, know this iconic crashed sailboat well. But, like the other sinking ship in Lake Sumter, it is rotting away and it would behoove the powers-that-be to replace them with newer tourist teasers.

Buildings in the three home towns of The Villages


Brownwood Post Office - Brownwood


Cattlemen's Association - Spanish Springs


Citizens First Bank - Spanish Springs


Bank - Lake Sumter Landing


Sneaky Jake's Tavern - Brownwood


Please note that with the exception of the two banks, none of these buildings are what they claim to be.  They are creations by the powers-that-be in The Villages to give the area a "vintage" effect.  As we've said before, The Villages is a "Disneyland for Adults."
