Thanks for an informative look at On Top Of The World....It seems like a nice community with alot of amenities. I think though that The Villages is larger now than OTW. Just curious now which community is larger? They both have great amenities. If you golf then The villages might be a better choice because of the free golf. Here is some information about The Villages and I suppose it's just up to the individual which community they prefer. The following ink has information about The villages - 101 interesting facts about The Villages -
