Wow ... a lot of good responses!

Yep, I'd love to see a reasonable health facility. Heaven knows I need it! When we come down, I do want to check out all the exercise programs they have going on at Sumter Landing Square... so need to get involved in being healthier *sigh*.

Would like to see the practice golf areas-- need as much help there as possible, too! *chuckle*

I love to buy in bulk, so a Sam's Club or Costco would be great. I am currently a member of Sam's Club, only because the Costco is in a Chicago burb too far away.

** I LOVE PEAPOD so, I would love to see a PeaPod (ordering groceries via the internet) delivery service in the area!! I can get better fresh veggies from there than I can from our local markets, that is if it isn't during the 'in season' farm stand time. **

My 2cents!
Rebekah

Another vote for WHITE CASTLE! A Skyline Chili would be nice too.

A Sam's Club is being built near Home Depot. Won't be long and we will have one.

We would love to see pools with hot tubs, lights on the free tennis courts and a indoor pool and fitness center (besides the rehab center). A water slide at a pool would be nice also.

A movie theater (preferably an AMC so I could continue getting points for free movie showings, popcorn and soda, etc.) with 16 to 24 screens and stadium seating would be nice. The Villages also needs a hobby store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

I thought White Castle was not even in Florida???

A Blockbuster or Hollywood Video store near 466 and maybe one even at the south end of the Villages.

A theater troupe??

Somewhere in TV or near where I could get Dutch Crunch bread.

Ok, my wish list:

1. A Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (Ummmmmmm)

2. A closer (to Duval) Target

3. A hot tub at the pools

4. A "thick" pan Pizza from Pizza Hut that delivers to Duval!!!!!

5. A library around the corner in (you guessed it) Duval.

6. The news that starts at 10:00 rather than 11:00 est.

7. The Broncos on the TV without paying (an arm and a leg) to purchase "the dish" to see them.

8. My best friend coming to visit once a month......... Ok, now I'm getting carried away!!!

but I think that is my wish list. :joke: :joke:

Oh, and my grandchildren paying their own way to come and see us!!!! ( I know, I'm getting greedy!!!)

Those groups do seem to leave fairly early. Maybe in the winter they will be leaving later when it is not so hot?

A Trader Joe's any where near TV selling "3 Buck Chuck". The closest is in Georgia or North Carolina. We have to stop and load up before hitting the the Florida border.

IMO we Village People need:
1. Joanne's fabric, or Calico Corners Outlet, or Hanc(r)ock Fabric store, any or all!
2. Hobby Lobby and/or Michael's
3. Trader Joe's

How about some recreation trails (non cart) through swamps and other interesting wildlife areas? It'd be a nice walk for bird and other animal watching.

If you need a White Castle burger fix, try the Krystal in Ocala on 200. Their krystal burger is the same thing. Ate them since I was a kid in Jacksonville. Still do.
