For you guys nearing retirement especially. I've lived in one for over 10 years so I guess I know a little on the subject. The pro's I have to say this is a nice somewhat upscale community with just about everything from a golf course to a beautiful clubhouse with just about every type of recreation and activitie going. Gated and people do try to look out for and help their friends and neighbors. We've met so many nice people here from all backgrounds and have found people from my hometown and a gentleman I served with in the navy. You can be as active and involved as you want to be or just be left alone .For singles or people who become widdows or widdowers theres a large active singles group . The cons To protect the integrity of the community theres a lot of regulations as far as what you plant or build.There are always going to be those people who want to know everybodys business and even though we have a wealth of talent here in all types of vocations theres always goiing to be those who think they know everything ,the people who dont care how much money we spend and those who want to do everything on the cheap.My wifes biggest problem lately is that we've lost a lot of very nice people in the last few years and it's depressing going to all these funerals.I could go on and on,but hpoefully this will provide a little insight .I'm not leaving anyway,overall I like it here.
