If you mean the Villages, about 25 miles south of Ocala, it is an over 55 community. No children.

there are a variety of other subdivisions/communities adjacent to THE VILLAGES where kids are allowed....I've only visited the area but it looks like a wealthy place - probably good schools. NOT EVERYONE THERE IS OVER 55. It takes doctors, nurses, teachers, retail workers, etc to support that area - and those professionals need a place to live - with nice amenities. From what I saw, the area surround the Villages looked very nice - a few miles out there's horse country and nearby there's Ocala National Forest - a favorite place to camp/RV.
