The hotel is also just a one minute walk to the Spanish Springs Town Square with its fountains, restaurants, cafes, shops, movie theatre, bowling alley, Fine Arts Theatre, Happy Hour, and live music and dancing each night!  Perfect spot for us to gather!

The Spanish Springs Square is adjacent to a shopping plaza with two grocery stores and many other shops (and restaurants) so you can easily walk (less than 5 minutes) to pick up any supplies that you want.

Please Note:  When you book the shuttle bus from Orlando Airport to come to The Villages, you have to specifically request that the bus stops at Spanish Springs when you make your reservation for the bus, otherwise it will only go to the other two squares in The Villages.  Check the website as to how and when to make your shuttle bus reservation: https://workmantransportation.com/schedule-information/
