I read the NYT hit piece. We are not Villages residents but we have visited family here for the past 22 years and multiple times per year. We have danced the squares, hit the bars and restaurants and golfed. We have met and enjoyed our time with literally thousands of folks that live here. Politics, racism or anything controversial has never come up. The people we met were all busy enjoying their lives in a positive way. I believe we have 22 years more experiences that someone here for a few days sitting in a bar trying to incite controversy. We are here in the neighborhood now in an RV resort for a couple of months but still enjoying all the entertainment and restaurants. Highly recommend The Villages for fun, friendly folks!

  1. I read a while back that under age 19 exemptions are allowed at Bison Valley, Oak Meadows and Spring Arbor (perhaps they are designated ‘family units’–although I haven’t located this information online).

  2. Ryan, that was the most interesting episode of Inside the Bubble I’ve seen! Every story, especially the 2-part post from ESI Money, was so informative! We will be moving there in about a year and you, continually, help us more than just about anybody else. Thank you!
