What is Unique about the Villages?

This simple answer might be everything is unique! - There is not another active adult community in the country quite like the Villages and it must truly be seen to appreciate it. Upon first visiting the Villages you might get the impression you are visiting a large movie set. It has an almost Disney-isque quality about it as everything seems perfectly planned and perfectly in place. 

Life at The Villages, Ocala Florida

Situated in Sumter County in Florida, The Villages is one of the largest age-restricted retirement communities around. It is a master-planned community and includes parts of Marion and Lake counties. It is managed by a number of CDDs or Community Development Districts, with the majority being handled by the creator and owner of the Villages, H. Gary Morse. Nestled in central Florida, The Villages is about 45 miles northwest of Orlando and about 20 miles south of Ocala.

Since December of 1978 until today, there are more than 92,000 residents at The Villages, and the population continues to increase in number, with more than 200 homes sold every month. The community constantly ranks as an extremely high growth area. In the year 2008, Census Bureau ranked the community as the number 1 micropolitan area in the country that increases its number of residents. Additionally, Forbes magazine ranked it in 2012 also as the number one fastest-growing small town.

The regional recreation concept of The Villages places all the pursuits and hobbies of every resident. The community has first-class Regional Centers, Neighborhood Centers and Village Centers, and these three present nothing, but enjoyable activities that everyone can always take advantage of.

The recreation department has more than a thousand activities. Given the number, you can expect that The Villages residents will have lots of things to do at all times to keep them active and occupied and lead a fun and vigorous life.

There is also the executive golf trail with 30 9-hole courses that are mainly par 3 holes with irregular par 4 or 5. The golf trail at The Villages, unlike the others outside of the community, is preserved at such a very high standard. All courses have something to offer for beginner, intermediate and advanced golfers.  

There are 3 conventional town squares at the community hub, and this is where residents can find lots of laughter and excitement. The Villages founder strongly believed that hometowns must have an extraordinary place to meet with friends. At present, the town squares have nightly entertainment for free, a vivid assortment of dining and shopping establishments and modern movie theaters. No matter what you opt for, you will know for sure why they are a popular place to meet and hang out with your friends and have a wonderful time.

There are tons of venues and entertainers all year round, and from 5pm to 9 pm every night, a live entertainment is held in gazebos without spending a penny. Lots of restaurants and country clubs present unique entertainers to keep you amused during happy hour or dinner.

Last, but not the least, there are several health care facilities and neighborhood fitness centers around the corner for individuals who wish to stay fit and healthy.
