Retirement Community Like the Villages in FL

April 23, 2012 at 10:15PM

We live in Kings Gate Club, an over 55 community, which is located in Nokomis, FL. on the outskirts of Venice, FL. a beautiful little town. About twio miles down the road is Knights Trail Shooting Range. I’m not positive about the exact name, but that’s pretty close. Everybody loves Kings Gate Club – many, many activities. Some of the homes have Gulf access, there is a boat launch, RV storage, beautiful pool and clubhouse. Check it out at KGC.cc

My husband and I found a wonderful, wonderful place to live. We moved to Sun City in Hilton Head, South Carolina. There are over 100 activities, so your wife would love that. My husband plays golf and I play a lot of mahjong. We have tons of things we can do together.We have our own restaurants, theatre, 3 golf courses,12 tennis courts, etc. It is not as big as the villages, but we do have about 12,000 residents.
The houses are nice and are in several price ranges. The very best thing is the folks you meet. There is a saying here that it doesn’t matter who you were or what you did before, here everyone is in the same boat. It’s true. We all love life and want to enjoy our remaining years in an active, mentally stimulating atmosphere, with fun loving people.
The place is absolutely beautiful and extremely well cared for. South Carolina has about 12 weeks of winter, rest of time it is nice. August gets a little hot, but not unbearable. Hurricanes have not been a problem although we are close to the ocean.
My best suggestion would be to check out their website and take a look. I am so happy we are here. It was the very best decision we could have made. Good luck to you, and let us know what you decide to do.

There’s a retirement community in Elliott Lake, Ontario, that was formerly a substantial mining town and there was a lot of housing available at reasonable prices when the mine(s?) closed.

They advertise a lot. and I think that the people who live there find a variety of things to do and enjoy the relationships.

It’s a couple of hundred miles north of Toronto, north-east of Lake Huron.

That’d be about 250 mi. north of Cleveland. as the crow flies.

We visited The Villages last December had an absolute blast. As impressive as it looked in all of the literature, their website, in the YouTube videos, etc. you really HAVE to see it in person to get a true grasp of what it’s really like. Wow, is all I need to say.

The wife had found On Top of the World’s website online wanted to go see it, too. so on the way home thru Ocala we decided to check it out. Not Impressed at all. First of all, it’s kind of isolated down a long road from the highway. There’s a small shopping area outside of the gate, but at 10:30am on a wednesday morning it was virtually deserted, and I believe that way more than half of the storefronts were vacant. The only way to get inside the front gate is to schedule a tour with a sales rep. which we decided not to do after seeing the ghost town retail area. What we were able to see of the golf course homes looked very nice well maintained. but after just coming from the vibrant alive atmosphere of The Villages, it just didn’t appeal to us.

I know this is an old thread, but wanted to add my two cents. Hubby and I visited the Villages last year for a full week. Tons and tons to do, but too much traffic, accidents every day between cars and carts. We just got back from On Top of the World in Ocala, and it was like The Villages, except not as crowded, more off the major highway, which is what we want. hundred of clubs, continuing education, on site restuarants, pools, golf courses, and the floor plans are fabulous. Also very affordable. We are thinking of building next year, cause we’re not quite ready to retire right now.

I was reminded of this thread when I saw this post in Ann Landers this morning, 12/28/2016.

I used the word horn aye in another post that’s being held up by mods. There’s a senior community just over an hour from Orlando called The Villages. Known for their horn aye seniors and high std rate. Drop hubs off there and get on with your life! I feel so bad for LW and hope there are family members to confide in as she says they have no friends. Others have mentioned the possibility of dementia which may be true. But lw may be over it at this point and two full of resent to see him through this. I wouldn’t blame her one bit.
