Smile Anyone in TV from Akron Ohio

Just wondering..we are planning a move to TV, and thought we might get some feedback from someone who has already made the move from our area. Thanks in advance. Condo Lady

Boomer and I live in Cincinnati. I grew up in Columbus. F16 lived in Dayton. I THINK Hawkwind is from the Northeast part of the state.

There are MANY many Ohioans in The Villages.

Default relocating from Ohio

I have what I thought was a cute story from a greeter (from Columbus, OH) we met at the new residents' breakfast. She was single (either divorced or widowed, don't know, doesn't matter), mother of 2, grandmother of 4, retired from her 2nd career in Columbus. Spent her time mostly ferrying school-age grandchildren to/from soccer, etc. and babysitting while their parents went on various vacations.

visited friend or relative in the Villages for like 1 week (ok, maybe 2), no intention of doing anything but taking a vacation - bought a house, flew back home, stopped at Kinko's on her way and bought a FSBO sign, stuck it in her yard, got her house in contract in like 2 days (this was 4 years ago, remember), and when her kids called to ask about her vacation, said it was great, and she was moving in 6 weeks!

Kids were shocked, but dealt with it (no other choice) and 6 mos or so later she was living in the Villages and working part-time for the rec dept, having a blast. Said her kids now went on family vacations together, with all the kids, have reconnected, come to visit, as do the grandkids, and everyone is happier, including her. Said she's in a wonderful, friendly neighborhood, included in all kinds of things, and extremely happy.

Just another fairly typical story of how someone ended up in TV. Just thought I'd throw this in to say don't be afraid to try. you will most likely love it, and if you don't, what's the worst thing that could happen? You could move back. But, if you're like the vast majority, you won't - you'll wish you'd done it sooner.

We do not own in TV at this point. We just want to be snowbirds and so we would not be selling the Ohio house. But I do have a pretty good feel for TV.

And I think there might even be two Ohio clubs in TV because there are so many Buckeyes I guess.

It used to be said that the Ohio people tended to migrate to the gulf coast, along with others from the Midwest. But now I think there are lots of Buckeyes in TV. All those Buckeyes can wave to all those Michiganders headed in the same direction, down I-75. Good luck on your journey.

Condo Lady, my husband is originally from Canton, but has lived and worked in Akron. We also lived in N. Canton for several years.

We LOVE living in TV.

Born in Akron, went to school in Greensburg and the pool/lake in Uniontown for many years. Now in S. Florida and hope to be in TV in the next 2-3 years. Never went to any high school reunions, wonder how many I will meet up with in TV?
