The activities were perfect for us, as our group age ranged from age 5 to age 36. With small kids and teenagers it is often hard to find a happy medium. This resort was a perfect fit. For us everything was in walking distance. The pools and clubhouse were awesome. The activities that were offered were FREE of charge and great fun. Our whole family participated in a scavenger hunt and won a huge watermelon that we were able to share with our neighbors. The family enjoyed games, mini golf, hula-hooping contest, archery, volleyball, basketball, hole-in-one contest, Connect Four tournament, etc. The staff was incredibly friendly and went out of their way to make our stay one to remember. They even had an adults-only night at the clubhouse. Oh, and there was a small theater room, in which we could watch movies in comfort. The grocery store was not far away either.
All in all, of the four resorts that we have visited, this one is top notch and we cannot recommend it any more highly then this. If you want a GREAT vacation, without blowing huge amounts of cash, while enjoying quality time with the kids, this is THE place to go. Our 5-year-old son pitched a hissy fit when it was time to go and we had to drag him into the car. In school he told his teacher that he lived in Texas and that it was his favorite home. If anyone from Silverleaf reads this... THANK YOU for the most awesome vacation my family has ever enjoyed. It was our last family trip with ALL the kids, as our oldest daughter is now in college.

We went fishing with a tour guide recommended from the Marina at The Villages, a sister resort close to ours. A grocery store is close as well as restaurants, but you must have a car to get to any of these things. We enjoyed going into Tyler for the Rose Museum and the Azalea Trail - fantastic houses!
The best thing was that our dog loved it. We went for many walks on the quiet roads and the weather was wonderful.
