Welcome!

Are You Ready......

Golf, Friends, Fun! . Want to feel 10 years younger and more alive than ever? Then consider retirement in The Villages®, Florida; a golf cart community. Golf is just one of the many activities available daily. Many people use their carts as their cars for their daily errands, etc. It's legal here!

Some do not even like golf! They spend their time playing pickleball, painting, bike riding, book writing, or one of the hundreds of activities available every day. I am not exaggerating, hundreds of activities everyday. It is conveniently located about One hour North of Orlando, Florida.

Welcome to an informative, insider website that gives someone new to  The Villages® community a candid look at what goes on inside this amazing community. It also gives myself and others a chance to relate useful information to new and seasoned Villagers by asking others to tell about their experiences.

Like many Baby Boomers who have reached their retirement goals early, my husband and I were searching the country for another residence or a place to relocate, one that would provide us with lots of sunshine and plenty to keep us busy.

With no state income tax, great weather, and beaches nearby, The Villages®, Florida community was our ticket to a fun filled rewarding early retirement.

According to one of the Real Estate Associates, The Community is forty square miles of golf cart paths leading to everything from golf, to tennis,bocce ball, pickleball, shuffleboard, pottery club, to Zumba exercise classes, there is something here for everyone’s taste.

I cannot think of any wholesome activity that is not represented here in The Villages®, Florida community. You could do at least one hundred different activites everyday if you had time!


The beaches are a short drive (most are 1 ½ -2 hours away,) and you can choose from either coast. Just far enough inland that hurricanes are not an issue. And don’t discount the nearby lakes for great fishing! Whether you plan on buying, renting, or staying in one of the hotels, I can assure you that you have never experienced a place quite like this!


You will find yourself saying,“What’s Not To Love,” and “How Soon Can We Move!”The tabs to the left are gateways to useful information concerning the many different aspects of Villages life, and links to websites that can give you even more insight. Many are interactive in order for all of us to learn from each other concerning everything from lawn care to favorite restaurants. There are also many tips on activities, day trips, and classes included.

I hope you enjoy this website,  as much as I am enjoying providing it for you.
