The Villages is a Disney World for adults. Everyone I know there is between 55 and 75 but you would think they were in their 30's...so much energy! I lived in Fl or a number of years before returning to Maryland and I can't wait to get my house sold so I can move into The Villages. The only thing you need to consider before moving is that it is really hot in July and August, but if you're like me and love the sun...it's perfect.

Default Resales much smaller

I've noticed that many of the resales are much smaller than the new models. I've seen many 1,200 sq. ft. and smaller. The few bigger ones were rather pricey. We saw the new models also, which seemed a better deal when we were there last year.

I do not want to live on a street where most of the other people are part-time snowbirds--and we'd be mostly alone all summer, as full-timers.

Smile The Villages

Yes I have so many friends living down there from Connecticut. They love it. My husband and I want to retire down there also. We go down every year and look for homes. Our friends range from 55 to 65 and they enjoy every moment there. It is a hoping place if you want activities all the time, or it can be a quiet place if you just want to enjoy your home. They tell us the neighbors are wonderful and everyone is so friendly and happy. Then again, why wouldn't you be, you are in sunshine and warmth most of the time and its a lovely resort with so many things to do everyday. Linda

This was old information printed in the Orland newspaper a few years ago. The Villages put on a number of info sessions to teach the oldsters the care needed if one is going to be sexually active. Most of these people only thought about pregnancy--not a problem!

My parents have lived in over 20 different places in the midwest and south. They moved to the Villages about ten years ago and have never been happier in all their lives! I'm sure some of that is due to not having to go to work every day but there is a lot(!!!) to do there and the residents are very friendly.

I've heard how happy people are there...

But most all but the most expensive homes are SO small. My dh and I would be bumping into each other all the time...

This makes no sense.....why would "oldsters" be worried about getting pregnant ?

They knew they were too old to get pregnant and so were not worried because that wasn't possible! They apparently weren't aware of STD's.
