We only wish we had moved here sooner. Ten years and every day wake up happy. The Villages is a wonderful place to live.

Shawn,

I have been "lurking here" for the past year. What others say is correct: 1 ) Lots of helpful advice here 2) Lots of friendly people willing to share their thoughts and insights 3) If you run across someone telling you something that doesn't seem quite right - check with others before believing it yourself

Like you, we are also planning to move at some point, just not sure when....

I joined TOTV in December 2009 after looking at the Villages website and the homes for sale. (wish I had bought a couple dozen then!) I had first heard of it through ads on Golf Channel, and it intrigued me, as I had retired a year before and was looking for a winter getaway. We booked our LSP for April 2010, and by reading and posting on TOTV I was very prepared by the time we came. I say prepared, though nothing can quite adequately prepare one for the beauty, scope, infrastructure, and activity available here. We had been to South Padre Island for a couple winter getaways, but once we experienced TV we were hooked for life. As many have said accurately, TOTV is THE best place to learn about this slice of paradise.

My wife and I bought the same day we took a tour with a real estate agent. We had been looking for 18 months and finally found the right place for us. and bought soon after the tour.. never regretted our decision. Great place nice (and helpful) people some of which we call good friends. Full-timer or snow bird doesn't matter to us.

I was on this forum more than a year before we actually retired and moved here. I got a lot of great information from friendly and helpful folks here. And I literally did dream of being here before we moved. I had dreams of riding my bicycle on the multi-purpose path near the Buena Vista / Hendry roundabout and of driving my golf cart on the multi-purpose path along 466A between Morse and Buena Vista. When we finally moved here and I did both, I could truly say I was "living the dream." The Villages isn't for everybody (we know of a few folks that moved "back home" or on to other, smaller communities) but it sure is right for my wife and I!
