December 26, 2017 — Many people have heard about The Villages, the giant active adult community in north-central Florida that spans 3 counties. They know it is big (over 110,000 residents), has massive numbers of golf courses and swimming pools, and has more clubs and activities than anyone could ever even sample. But maybe they aren’t sure about the location, or don’t know if a community that big would be right for them. If you happen to be one of the people who are curious to learn about alternatives to The Villages, there is good news – there are many to consider.
To help you find other communities that are very large we have just updated two of very popular “Villages Alternatives” articles. One is devoted to very large active communities in the East, and the other to those in the West. In all we have 17 communities in the Topretirements database that have more than 10,000 residents, and another 500+ that have more than 1,000. These communities are situated in many states, but most are in Florida, Arizona, and California.
