We have heard about the Villages and have seen them advertised on TV. We passed signs along I-75 as we headed south and decided to take a day trip to visit.
We saw a Produce Market outside of a town square and walked around. This was on Saturday morning.
But first we stopped at a golf course to check things out. They have over 20 executive (par 3) courses and over 10 18-hole championship courses. We could enjoy this...
From the Recreation Center, we took a look at an entry level home in the $155K range. We are not planning on settling down or leaving the RV lifestyle, but I was curious at what the 'modest' homes looked like.
So we viewed on that was about 1500 square feet and a two bedroom. It had a good size kitchen, two car garage, small yard and a fairly large living room/great room. I really liked the layout.
We told Gail we could take about an hour and we saw a lot in that time. At the conclusion, she said we had to see the cows near the Brownsville Square entrance. Each square has a theme and this one recognizes the influence of the cattle industry in Florida.
So while we enjoyed the tour, had our curiosity satisfied, got answers to all our questions -- we both felt as if this lifestyle is not for us. We continue to love what we are doing and can't think of anything else we'd rather be doing. If if weren't for this lifestyle, we'd never see the Villages!
Thanks for joining us today on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
