I enjoy living here! It is a nice place! I am a high school student senior attending The Villages Charter School right next door! I highly suggest living here because of the many job and schooling opportunities available to the public. I also volunteer at the local Humane Society located in Sumterville, also next door, and it is amazing! I have never had an experience so refreshing and eye opening, even assisting in what I eventually want to have as a later career in life once finished with high school and college.

The shops are very cute, the dog park is beautiful, and the Mexican restaurant is excellent. The roads are not usually too busy unless there are large community events. Overall, Wildwood is a nice place to live in.
Very tight-knit community no alcohol sales after 1100 pm which is fantastic in my opinion very little crime are all pros. Cons are golf community very congested a lot of retirees in a hurry to go nowhere The Villages people are self-centered rude and can not drive well
