Since TV is not an over 55 community, how does that impact seniors?

It appears there is a large senior community there so how do the seniors mesh with families with children? Are there activities for seniors only?

We are looking at mainly over 55 places, but are considering checking out TV based on the good press.

Anyone in the community pays POA dues and has a right to use the facilities, although there are rules. No one under 16 can use the pool without an adult. Children aren't allowed in the workout areas of the gym. There are activities for mainly adults, of any age. The children's activities that exist are the swim team, and in summer and spring break there are kids' camps. We have a "mini-beach" with a playground, suitable for kids under 10. I've never seen any conflict between adults and kids. It's not like there are a lot of kids. A couple dozen kids and 7000 adults, around 70% of the residents are 55 or over. I've heard of a few seniors who were rude to the parents of children, suggesting they didn't belong. Someone should have told them to mind their own business.

Shadow ....Thank you for the info and the quick response! With 70% seniors it sounds like it definitely caters to the older crowd.

We do have the annual influx of grandkids from June to August too. It's a nice break to see their cute shiny faces having so much fun with G-ma and G-pa.

I know I'm sorta breathing a little life into an old thread (or digging one up from the past), but I want to share my appreciation with TheShadow and everyone else that has been so forthcoming with the details of TV and how everything there works.

I was just there last week. I feel better about it as a retirement option, and can't wait to learn more.

I am nominating TheShadow as the Mayor, or the Ambassador at the very least, of Tellico Village :-)

So does this mean you are moving there?
