Mary and I came for a Lifestyle Visit. Then came back and rented for a month. Looked at all the areas around the Villages i.e. Mount Dora, Ocala, Clermont, Leesburg, Eustis, Tavares etc. All of which have good Restaurants and community theater. Check out all of the Villages amenities such as the Sharon and the Black Box. The rec centers and the squares have entertainment. Every Religion and Food choice are represented. Lets not FORGET GOLF. And last but not least THE PEOPLE. Len & Mary HAPPY VILLAGERS since 2007. I forgot about the Airport van nd the Cruise connection which we use often. Now I think I'm done

What's a TOTV Specialist? Are you part of the Admin. on this site? Or maybe you just like the catchy name.

If you are a TOTV Specialist ...... you should know the answer to your question. Am I missing something?

Never, ever, ever sign a contract and pay in advance...i.e. Service Smart.

Ignore about half of what you read on TOTV. Take the rest of it with a grain of salt. There is some good info here if you persist.
