Wildwood, Florida is just a jump from The Villages but what a contrast. Wildwood is still old-Florida small town. Main Street/Highway 301 cuts through the middle of town and the route is noisy with a constant stream of 18-wheelers. There are boarded up storefronts, uneven sidewalks and alleys overgrown with weeds. I noticed a soup kitchen a block off Main Street and there’s no short supply of thrift shops and second-hand stores. Still, a few businesses are doing well and their quaint charm made them photo-worthy.
