The Villages®

The Villages is the largest, single-site, residential real estate development in the United States, spanning over 35,000 acres in three adjoining counties in Central Florida. An hour north of Orlando and 70 minutes from Tampa, The Villages currently has more than 7 million square feet of commercial buildings and retail tenants—and we’re still growing!

Family-owned and operated for more than 30 years, The Villages community is home to 125,000 residents, adding an additional 4,000 new residents each year. Aside from residents, The Villages draws people from the surrounding communities to enjoy local businesses—both as customers and staff members. Also, our hometown has one of the most successful public charter schools in Florida, The Villages Charter School, which helps local businesses recruit and maintain great employees.

Our hometown is proud to offer everything residents need, including a newspaper, radio station and television station, which allow The Villages community to stay locally informed. From restaurants and hotel accommodations to retail and professional space, residents are dedicated to supporting business and community growth.
