No better place to live during retirement. The Villages has everything a person could want to do plus more. The only thing lacking is the beach but who needs a beach when there are pools everywhere. It is definitely a place to look at when you are considering a retirement community.

Church on the square
entertainment on the squares

It is an enjoyable, friendly place to live. The winters are somewhat "crowded", but still enjoyable. We do feel there should be dedicated golf cart paths everywhere in The Villages. No road sharing paths with the traffic that includes large trucks, trailers, etc.
