Congratulations...happy settling in to your new home; may you make many great memories there. That indeed is a very large fish. What did you do with your snow shovel?

Thumbs up another welcome!

We arrived in March 2019 after yrs of research & visiting other retirement communities. TV is the BEST place. We love the lightening, majestic cloud formations, sunrises & sunsets (our lanai faces north & we get the best of each), and the glorious birds too. I actually have embraced the humidity after yrs of northern living!

After spending more than 18 months scouring web sites, looking at literally THOUSANDS of homes and learning about different locations inside and outside Florida, we feel confident that our selection will bring us joy.

Last night we sat out watching the distant lightning and this morning the rising sun and chorus of waking birds has us transfixed.

I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone for being so helpful, sharing their knowledge here. That info and friendliness is what drew us here and we look forward to doing the same for others and maybe finally meeting some of you here.

I still will have to change the location information on my avatar ....
Welcome Tom! I have followed your journey of exploration of The Villages for the last several months on TOTV. You obviously did your homework and that research apparently led you to the correct decision - moving to The Villages Florida. We have a part-time home here in TV and love it. We would consider being full timers if not for the fact that our home in Missouri is within 1500 feet of all three of our children and our young grandchildren. We have come regularly since 2010 and the shine has not faded. Good luck and hope our paths cross sometime in the near future. Ed
