Crispus (researched this town Within the last 5 years and is considering moving here):

"Great place to retire"

We are planning our first visit to the Villages in early May 2011. We have been researching retiring there for a couple of years. Our good friends have a home there and they have been kind enough to let us stay for a week for free. I will write a review after our visit.
