20,000-acre Central Florida complex called The Villages, the largest gated retirement community in America – and one of the most popular destinations for New Yorkers in their golden years – where the female-to-male ratio runs 10 to 1.
It’s a widower’s paradise, and the word on the street is that there’s a big black market for Viagra.
Though The Villages – which spans three counties with 55,000+ homes and more than 110,000 residents – boasts 34 golf courses, nine country clubs, two downtown squares and a slew of restaurants and bars, getting lucky is one of the residents’ primary pastimes.

Really? Where do you get your data? Some appears fine. Some is in serious error.

It's nice that many of you have nothing better to do but the original poster has a computer and could have gotten all this info and more with just a little bit of typing to google...why don't they do the work themselves?????
