    If you could choose just the one, would you prefer to vist Winter Garden Village or The Loop?

    We've been to The Loop a few times but never Winter Garden Village.

    I don`t think there is really a lot to choose between the two of them.
    We did enjoy having dinner at WGV a while back [at Bonefish I think :unsure:] with our property managers, but we tend to go to the Loop more often as it is closer to where our villa is located.

    Not much :lol: the layout is very strange, the car parks are in the middle with all the shops around the outside. We didn't like it, here is a layout so you can see how spread out it is.

    It's definitely not as nice as Winter Garden Village, we've been to The Loop once and wouldn't bother again unless there was something that we couldn't get anywhere else.

    I like The Loop because it is quiet and we don't shop a lot so I like that you can pretty much park outside the shop you want. Not sure I would like it much for an extensive shopping trip though :unsure:

    We went to the loop for the first time yesterday and it's pretty similar IMHO to WGV. It doesn't feel as "nice" perhaps but it's not scummy either.

    One thing I find weird with most of these places is the distance between shops! We really had to drive to the shops we wanted and park outside, walking would've taken ages :lol: but then I think that's similar for WGV

    I would add that for those around the Davenport area, posner park is much closer than both loop/wgv, just one junction down the I4 and has a lot of the same shops. A super target, books a million, bestbuy etc. It's not yet as developed perhaps but the major stuff is there. No good for restaurants at the moment though

    :taunt: :taunt: :taunt: :taunt: to you both :wink:

    It really has changed everything. We were getting a little bored of just the parks with very expensive taxi journeys to the mall :/ so it was a very timely change. Very glad you all convinced us to give it a try!

    I think it'll be a while before I'm giving you experts advice on where to go though :lol:
