    As a Hispanic, I feel like in an small plaza in a village or town in Hispanic heritage location. Just need a couple of big trees to protect visitor from the central Florida sun in the summer.

    Beautiful town square with lots of shops to check out , lots of restaurants to dine out in and outdoor. The boardwalk along is quite nice , they even have short boat rides around the lake , after 4pm for only $2 . In the Center of it all , there is live entertainment playing every night, with lots of chairs but you can bring your own as well. Entertainment starts at 5pm to9pm with dancing if you like and there is happy hour ( 5pm-6pm). Also to be noted , the area is very pet friendly.

    The recreational center shows more like a museum than anything else. It's clean and attractively decorated.

    The structures and facilities may be the same, but every visit, particularly in the evenings with the live music, people dancing or just gathering around the plaza makes it different. Let add those days when they have special events; cars displays, gold carts displays, and many other activities.

    Going to a Polo Match was on my Bucket list so we attended a match at the Villages. The $20 fee per person might seem like a lot but when you compare it to other ticket prices for sporting events it's not that extreme. It was a beautiful day and we opted for the tail gate section which put us close to the field. The game is easy to understand and fun to watch. At half time they do the divot stomp where everyone who want to participate can go on the field and replace the loose turf.

    Loved this short walk and boardwalk over the water. Great to birdwatch. We even saw the stork on her nest and returned to see the baby!

    While visiting THE VILLAGES in Central Florida recently we were looking for a church to attend on Sunday. We found HOPE LUTHERAN CHURCH and were warmly welcomed when we entered. Everyone was very friendly and we loved the pastor’s sermon. If we lived there, we would certainly become members!

    This is not the best country club to have lunch. I was with a group of about 20 and we were seated up near the front door. Those that took care of our table weren’t that efficient. For example one person ordered hot tea and was never brought a spoon. She asked for some sugar and never got that. Someone asked for mayo and it never arrived. They were not really good about checking back to see of food was prepared properly or if we needed anything. Those with the lobster rolls did say that they were very good. Most people enjoyed their food, but not the service.

    Love going into Fresh Market - reminds me of Dorothy Lane Market in Dayton, Ohio (only on a "SMALL" scale. Produce and meats are good there.

    We went for dinner and didn't except entertainment. Mike and the band was playing inside because it was raining.
    Mike was great with a variety of songs and created a great atmosphere. It was fun.
    I hope he comes again. Service was great, thanks Lydia. Bar service was top notch also.

    First time visitor. The facility is partially an old church that they renovated. It appears when you enter through the front doors you are in the old sanctuary, which is beautiful with what appears to be all the original the stain glass windows. The space is roughly3 stories and has some musical performers playing piano and other instruments, background music. They also have a concession stands with alcohol. The actual performance area is built onto the old church and consists of three different levels, and they have an elevator that serves all the floors. The balcony, level 3 does not have concessions or bathrooms.
    The actual performance center is also beautiful and has excellent acoustics. It is small enough to feel intimate but large enough to attract bigger national talent. We sat in the center section of the balcony which has comfortable seats and good leg room, I am 6’4”.
    We saw Rain which is a national touring Beatles tribute show. They were excellent as well as their multi media show that they have with their show which would of been unheard of during the time of the actual Beatles. Rain also does some costume so they try to look the part of the Beatles. We have seen them before, I think in Hershey, PA, and were not impressed. However this show was fantastic.

    The Rustic Rose is a place that you can easily see a number of things that you like and want. As well, it is a great place to buy gifts. When in The Villages, it is a must stop.
