7. Bring your checkbook.[/QUOTE]

WHY??? Does anyone actually write Checks anymore? Actually, it is amazing how cheap the food and activities are in the Villages - furniture and nicknacks at locals stores are another matter though.

HAVE FUN!

The phrase "bring your checkbook" refers to buying a house, not going to restaurants or shopping.

By all means buy a $5 Villages map at a sales office. Use it for getting around on your visit, and later to review where you've been

Thank you, everyone, for the great ideas. I have a nice list to take with me.

I already took a couple people's advice about the shuttle vs. renting a car. I decided to rent a car even though it's costing me $80 more than the shuttle (then gas on top of that), but since we aren't able to stay very long I decided that we would be able to visit more of the area with a car. Plus, the trip to and from Orlando should be quicker with a car.
