We took a couple of little trips, one to The Villages, the retirement community just south of Ocala. We had lunch at the Lighthouse Point at Ft. Sumpter Landing, one of three town squares in The Villages. Ft. Sumpter Landing has an old Key West feeling, with pastel colored buildings and a beachy vibe.
Did I mention that the Villagers love their golf carts? They really do. They even have their own golf cart gas station and repair garage. I love the vibe!
Brownwood has a western theme that they carry through to the smallest detail. We went to the movie theater on New Year's Eve, and not only did the inside of the theater look like a town out of the Old West. Their bathrooms has wooden stall doors and a crescent moon carved out to look just like an outhouse door! I really love their attention to detail.
