I've been to The Villages. I suspect it will eventually become the 51st state.

Every front yard has a statue of a guy screaming "GET OFF MY LAWN"!

Watch out for those electric golf carts, thay can sneak up on you.

My wife and I were there last month on vacation scoping it out as a possible retirement location. Very nice and my wife loved it, so that's where we'll likely end up in several years.

I intend on retiring to Florida in 8-10 years( winter only). I want to be near the ocean but I do realize time has a way of changing what you want

I'm retiring IN Florida in about 10 years. :D We are trying to figure out an "arrangement" where we can spend a month each summer and fall in northern Georgia or North Carolina.

I've seen too much winter, last year sealed it. When thankgiving comes I'm headed south. Don't know why you would want NC or Georgia, they are part of the south but there are areas that they do count feet not inches

Sorry I see the fall now. I like gatlinburg area but a week is about all I can stand. Winter has only one reframing feature..... College basketball

I live in suburban Tampa.

But I like the beaches in Sarasota and Manatee Counties and spend my time there.

Manatee is more roughnecks and rednecks. Sarasota is upscale.

About six weeks ago I met a widow. Husband died in January. She ranted about how miserable last few years were and now she wants to have some fun. A companion. She's much older than me but very attractive. She was so flirtatious she gave me her number by dialing her number on my chest using her index finger while telling me the numbers. People saw this. Unreal.

I'm afraid of her sons so that is one reason I won't really pursue this.

So yeah, lots of widows and older women in open marriages. "Active adults". Some are very attractive. Probably sleep with a man by second date.

The Villages is up by Ocala. It's very middle-class to lower-middle class. It's people from Deer Park Long Island, not Syosset if that helps the few NY people here.

"it" being Florida or The Village in particular?

Be very careful. Parts of Florida are crime-ridden and you can make a big mistake moving to the wrong area. I'd stay away from the following counties: Broward, Dade, Lee, Pinellas, and Manatee.

And I can go on a long long rant about the lifestyle down here. Like back in January I went to a local Panera and it was sunny and 75 degrees while it was snowing up north. Perfect weather for outdoor eating but everyone was eating in the A/C indoors and a single person outdoors.

Blowhard northern types spend decades ranting about "moving to Florida" and when they get here they spend maybe one hour a day outdoors, and 23 hours a day in A/C home, A/C car, A/C restaurants, and that's it. And put taunting posts on FB in January but you don't here from them in the summer when we have brutal heat and humidity for weeks at a time.

Thank you for reading my rant.

I laughed when I saw this. It's where I grew up, lived there 20 years. I worked in there for 17 years doing vinyl siding. I did the 3rd house built in there but actually set mobile homes before it turned to houses only. Nice place without a doubt, has everything you need. I will be there again for Christmas to visit my parents. Don't know if they built a gym or not but there is one off hwy 441 in Belleview, north of the villages.

Ye sir it's beautiful in the Sarasota area. I worked on the Wal Mart in Venice from start to finish. I loved the intercoastal waterway......beautifull colored water.

No 813 in that list of counties? What about Pasco? There is crime all over and I'd agree the south side of St. Pete is a rough area but there are some beautiful parts of Pinellas County too. (Many parts of Clearwater, Palm Harbor, downtown St.Pete, Safety Harbor, Feather Sound ect)

And I'm from NY and practically lived outside when I lived there. Funny I found most locals wouldn't come out of their ACs.

You don't need to be rich to live in Florida. Unless you go to places like South Beach or Boca.

I don't like Pasco at all, none of that hwy 19 area honestly. Even Clearwater beach is lame/small...... except during spring break. It's like anywhere though, the closer to the city, the more crime.

There was a gang shootout at Clearwater that made national headlines. I think it was during Memorial Day weekend. I was in Sarasota during the drama.

FAU alumni here. :)
Apartments close to school seemed all be at normal prices. But that was back in the 90's.
Could imagine mizner park and some other places being expensive though.

Think you can always find reasonable prices if shop around there - I was lucky and found a small apartment
right on the beach in Pompano for 650 a month (10 yrs ago).

I lived in FL for 17 years, Tampa suburbs and Wesley Chapel. I'd never go back. The place has turned into a ****-hole. Florida is a place that criminals run to start over after they have committed crimes in other states, especially sexual predators. Congestion and people everywhere and the relentless heat and humidity 11 months out of the year gets old. The place has become very run down and in need of a good facelift. The only thing I miss about Florida is the ocean.

And I don't know about now, but the Villages used to have the highest rate of sexually transmitted diseases in the U.S.

I live next to The Villages. Most of the residents are inside by 9:30. Restaurants are all dead after 9:30. There are one or two bars that have huge mixture of different type of people from young to old that have decent Friday and Saturday night crowds.

There's several now. Mostly of the 24 hour variety. In fact, the one you're talking about Bodyshop is/ or is going 24 hour too.

My FIL lived in Plantation Oaks, between Daytona and St. Augustine. No shortage of female sexual predators there! He was/is sort of a dandy the way he dresses and acts, but he attracts women like a magnet even when my MIL was alive. If he was at the pool, there would be 3 or 4 hanging on him. After my MIL died in late 2011, they were all over him since he was perceived to be well off, which he wasn't. One lady who was not doing well financially (not a horrible looker..) begged him to take her in.

That's a nice part of Florida. Not many people from Ohio, Michigan, or NY yet.

These women hit on guys my age. Then when they realize they got you hooked, they back off in disbelief. Even wonder what is wrong with the guy if he'd show interest in someone so much older. They yearn for something physical but question it too much when it's at their fingertips. Women!

I like the area too, they have 3 seasons of sorts. I see some NYers in the area, but not as many as other places. I could see a younger guy going for a sugar momma. Some of these women have lots of money and if they live in a nice retirement community, the costs to be there are surprisingly low. They were throwing themselves at my FIL when my MIL died, but I guess none of them ever stepped up to set the hook.

"MailOnline went undercover in The Villages"........

.......and so many post-coital cigarettes were smoked that the entire office is now on a 20-a-day habit.
