About The Villages, Florida’s Friendliest Hometown

The Villages, called “Florida’s Friendliest Retirement Hometown”. From homes on tree lined streets to an amazing healthcare program, organized sports to a myriad of shopping venues, recreation offerings of over 3000 social clubs to fine dining and restaurant options. The Villages offers its residents an active adult lifestyle all accessible by separate golf cart paths and trails. 


The concept of the Villages began in the 1960’s when a Michigan businessman, Harold Schwartz saw an opportunity during one of Florida’s land booms. The Florida grasslands were abundant and at the time presented quite a bargain. Schwartz, like many other developers of that time purchased huge parcels of land hoping to attract retirees from the northern states to the lush Florida paradise. In the early stages of development what is now The Villages began as a trailer park named “Orange Blossom Gardens”. Eventually this would grow and become The Villages after following the example of other successful retirement communities like Sun City and adding amenities to the development like banks, shops, golf courses and restaurants. 


Today, The Villages has a population of over 125,000 residents. It encompasses 3 Florida counties of Sumter, Lake and Marion. It boasts 50 golf courses, over 3000 social and activity clubs and 3 town squares where you will find live entertainment 365 days a year. There are now hundreds of retail stores, from arts and crafts to clothing, furniture and department stores. Dining options are just as plentiful featuring recognizable national restaurant chains to unique independent boutique style dining. In addition there are 14 Country Clubs, each with a featured restaurant that offers its own specialty dish, daily specials and happy hours.
