The Villages

WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE GRANDMA AND JACK AIDAN

WHILE GRANDPA DECORATES FOR CHRISTMAS IN VIRGINIA?

(WATCH OUT, GRANDPA! DON'T FALL OFF THE LADDER!)


LOOKIE HERE! WELCOME TO THE VILLAGES.

THE FASTEST GROWING RETIREMENT COMMUNITY IN FLORIDA.

IT IS BETWEEN BIG O AND LITTLE O.

IT IS NORTH OF ORLANDA AND SOUTH OF OCALA.

IF YOU HAVE THE TIME, SCROLL DOWN WITH ME.

LET'S DO THE SCROLL!

This place is growing like a mushroom on steroids.

70,000 happy grey haired seniors enjoying over 1300 leisure activities including pickle ball, bocce, golf and travel. With US in a downturn this place still sold over 300 homes last month!

Now look below. Every resident seems to own two golf carts (His and Hers) for every one car.

There are a ton of golf trails with over 40 connecting tunnels. Buzz around to church, the store, the restaurant, the rec center, the doctor's office in your little golf cart. Get a license and take her on the highways going under 30 miles per hour.


The carts come in all shapes, models and designs.

Some are open to the wind and some are enclosed like tents.

And some are pretty fancy dancy!

If they have a license that can be from any state, they can travel along the right side of the roads in this vast complex but must stay under 30 miles per hour.
