We are from New England and hoping to move to the Villages in the fall. On two previous visits we stayed with a friend living there for going on 3 years. Love the place, people,atmosphere and weather.

Are there people living in the Villages that are still working and not quite ready to retire. I will be able to continue to work via the internet and my husband will continue in his position for another 2-3 years. Will we be out of place or should I say pace with the rest of the community?

My wife and I live in The Villages and we both still work full time and we don't plan to retire anytime soon. Based on our experience, many who call The Villages home still work as well. You and your hubby should feel right at home.

There are brand-new neighbors on my street. He's quit working, but she hasn't, and she's excited about her new hometown and new employment. I don't think it is a case of "must" work, either, she's just younger than the rest of the street and felt she really wanted to continue working!

Lots of people on my block work...some for fun, some for medical benefits, some because they're still young enough that they haven't finished their career years yet, some for pocket money. You won't feel like the odd person out.

My wife and I still work full time but still find time to enjoy the "fun" @ TV on the weekends. If I do not have a consulting assignment for the week than "It's Fun for the entire Week" and I have to return to work to rest!!! You know the saying in TV "No one dies from old age in TV, they die from sheer exhaustion."

We are retired but many friends are employed. You would not believe how many people actually work for the Villages. They employ a lot of residents in their recreation programs and food service. Also, sales and administrative offices. Citizens Bank and the Daily Sun are other examples of local employment for Villagers. Best of luck. You will LOVE it here.

Hey Jerry, this wouldn't be a free commercial in disquise would it? We do have lots of space for sale for Real Estate Brokers to post their ads. Send me an email and I'll tell you more.
