Some posters just don't care about facts.

I get what the original poster is saying .. have had a home for 3 1/2 years still trying to go full time. We pay for the amenities and “lifestyle”. Look around the place is so well kept. I think the point of frustration is people that have moved out fine. But stop complaining about what you paid for. One long van ride with a man and all he did was complain about everything I wanted to say move. But he would compare to other place (Top of the World). I know nothing about and then would say what they lack compared to The Villages. Just go already. Enjoy what you have or leave .... if that’s all the problems you have. Feel lucky...

You're silly! So, villagers should where a vest when outside the bubble so everyone knows that's where they're from? Really??

If I knew where the hell I was going, I would have been there by now!
That is like saying there would be no businesses anywhere if there weren't residents to support them.

That's actually somewhat true. Las Vegas wouldn't attract the millions of visitors every year, if there were no residents to work in the casinos.

New York City wouldn't prosper if no one actually lived in NYC.

The Villages entertainment would never even have existed in the first place, if the Villages, the community of residents, turned out to be a failure.

To funny sometimes reading the ridiculous comments made by some people here, this is by no means a private property nor a gated community! Stop whining and enjoy your retirement. I own and live here and I’m sure the influx of money helps support a lot of what most seem to enjoy.
