The lifestyle in The Villages is pretty good. Nothing is perfect. What would make your life here even better?

Just got back from Costco - retired folks can't afford spending $200 every time they need a box of Tide or a roll of TP.


A Washington Mutual Bank Branch would be nice.

home delivery service from grocery stores is a northern city service i miss her in tv. but with no snow and cold the need is certainly less of a priority.

Lif in TV would be much better if..............we could sell our house and move down there!! Sorry, I know it was a more serious question but I couldn't resist it. It just shows how desperate I am to get there. It'll happen I know but I want it NOW!

More and better golf practice facilities for chipping, pitching and putting with traps. For a golf community there is very few practice areas.

A large fabric/craft store - e.g. JoAnnes, Michaels, etc.- I'm tired of going to Ocala. Also a Pollo Tropical Restaurant. It's the best "fast-food" type I've had. The closest one is in Altamonte Springs.

agree with cleanwater.... a good golf practice area (or all types of shots) would put a ribbon on a fine place!

My wife & I would like a fitness center that you do not have to pay an arm & a leg for. Should be included with amenity fee. I on the other hand also agree that more golf practice facilities ie: Ranges would be nice with free
range balls for all also included in amenity fee that is at a lifetime rate not to exceed $130.

Shopping at Costco is like shopping anywhere else. You have to know your prices, shop wisely, and don't overspend. Costco has excellent meat products, and for the most part, you can save money shopping there.
