« Leaving Jacksonville & Off To The Villages - (The Villages, Florida) | Main | Early Thanksgiving - (The Villages, Florida) »

Monday, November 25, 2013


Thanks for the info. I've always wondered about living there. It might be something for down the road.

When we took a tour about three years ago, they told us that residents typically move two or three times during their life there...moving to a bigger or smaller home depending on their life changes, visitors, etc. or to a different "village" as they become involved in particular
activities or with particular friends.

I remember when .. The Villages was first being developed. having spent much of the 1980's in Ocala the first homes were selling for $30K and up. The last time we went south The Villages had spread to both sides of the highway with a golf cart bridge over 441. Yes, Florida is a popular destination for many retirees. Glad your in-laws have found a place they enjoy and can play outside most of the year.
