There are many retirement communities in Florida, but only one is so exceptional that it has been named “Florida’s Friendliest Hometown”. When the founder of The Villages, Harold S. Schwartz, came up with the idea for The Villages over 50 years ago, he didn’t want to create just another average retirement center. By committing to the happiness and comfort of each resident, Schwartz created something truly special.
While The Villages offers many fabulous residential areas and homes, you do not have to be a resident to enjoy all of the activities and attractions the retirement community has to offer. With two town squares filled with a variety of shops and restaurants, there is plenty to take in. Both town squares, as well as other centers in The Villages community, host nightly entertainment, so there is never a shortage of activities to choose from: plays, musicals, musicians, vintage car shows, arts and crafts and more.
The Villages also hosts many special events including golf tournaments, book signings, polo games, fashion shows, health fairs and parades and festivals. There is literally never a dull moment in this retirement community. One of the appealing activities offered at the retirement community is golfing. With almost 40 executive level and country club style courses, everyone from beginners to professionals can have their turn on the green.
With so much to offer, it is no wonder that The Villages is Florida’s premiere retirement community and attracts guests from all over the world. For a one-stop day full of entertainment and dining, there is nowhere that we, at the Sleep Inn and Suites Ocala-Belleview, recommend more.
