The Villages

In the heart of Florida is a one-of-a-kind retirement community called The Villages. The idea for the community was first conceived more than five decades ago. Today, it has become a top choice for people who want to retire in style. There, you will find all kinds of activities for residents and visitors alike, including golf, tennis, kayaking, fishing, swimming, rollerblading, softball, and more. The community offers the perfect lifestyle.


In addition to a magnificent climate and lush vegetation, Gainesville ranks as the largest city in Alachua County. With a population of more than 127,000, this growing city has many exciting things to see and do. Gainesville is home to the University of Florida, so there is a nice blend of age groups, making this a wonderful place to call visit or call home.


Also located in Central Florida is the city of Leesburg, where roughly 16,000 people reside. Golf is a huge pastime there; to accommodate demand, there are more than 24 high-ranking public and semi-private courses within a 30-minute drive. Other activities popular in Leesburg include watersports, fishing, and boating. This part of Central Florida boasts the world’s largest springs and rivers, making it ideal for boating, kayaking, tubing, or just sitting on the bank to relax.  For something a little more vibrant, Leesburg has several theme parks, including Silver Springs, Bok Tower Gardens, and Busch Gardens.


In spite of recent events, Orlando remains a great destination. The biggest attractions are Universal Orlando, Disney World, Islands of Adventure, and Sea World Orlando. However, beyond the theme parks are other worlds waiting to be discovered. Orlando has unbelievably amazing restaurants, as well as art galleries, museums, marketplaces, and more. Outdoor destinations are also in abundance, such as Rock Springs, Lake Eola Park, Kelly Park, and the University of Central Florida Arboretum.

Port Canaveral

Whether you are traveling alone, with friends or family, or as a couple, there are incredible attractions for you in Port Canaveral. For example, you can take an airboat ride on the St. Johns River and stop at the Lone Cabbage Fish Camp for a meal of fried alligator. The Cocoa Beach Pier is remarkable. This 800-foot wooden pier features four bars, five restaurants, and a handful of souvenir shops. For time on the beach, you can rent towels, chairs, and umbrellas, and then take advantage of the free showers. Of course, the famous Brevard Zoo is an incredible experience. In addition to a broad range of animals, the zoo has an exhilarating zipline adventure.
