    Visited the town square of Spanish Springs, enjoyed the decor ,some of the buildings reminded me of what I saw in Spain..well done. There are many shops to look around , many restaurants and bars , many great events and fantastic evening entertainment, live bands (5-9pm) Happy Hour (5-6pm). It’s one of the oldest town square but it’s well maintained and clean. Lot’s of car parking and cart parking available. Also it’s pet friendly .

    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.

    Great to visit for wartime items, which were all donated. Includes pictures, uniforms, letters, etc.

    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.

    It was our first time to visit this Center, we went to see a Micheal Bublé tribute. the grounds are well manicured, flowers , mature trees, lot’s of ample parking and some outdoor seating is available. Inside , the decor is chic , beautiful sofas + chairs .it’s well done, very appealing to the eye. There is a nice bar as well . Inside the theatre, the chairs were comfortable , the acoustics sounds were great. We sat in the upper level and we saw very well the show. I didn’t want to sit on the floor level , in case someone in front of me was tall, it would have obstructed my view. It is free to enter and visit but you have to pay for your show , of course.

    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.

    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.

    Delicious quesadilla and a couple adult beverages. Matthew served us at the bar and was extremely busy but still managed to take care of us.

    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.
