I agree with the other reviewer. I think that areavibes needs to update their findings, as the shops, grocery stores, restaurants have increased over the years. As this website is included on at least real estate company's website, I think that it's extremely important for the content to be correct, and they are anything but.
I lived in FFG from 2009-2014. It is a Wingate Retirement Resort. I'm not sure where areavibes is starting their 1 mile, as FFG encompasses over 21 miles of land.
There IS an excellent fitness center in FFG, and the equipment has been updated to the newer technology. They have an indoor heated swimming pool, classes for activities from Ballroom Dancing to Zumba, big screen TV's to watch while exercising, etc etc. There is also another chain Fitness Center located by the Food City grocery store.
Wyndham just finished building a new Visitors Center that has an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, free wifi, multiple meeting rooms, basketball and other sports. There are bikes for rent, and plenty of walking trails.
Food and Drink: There are multiple restaurants IN the Glade ranging from Red's Pub to Gourmet dining. Just outside the Glade entrance there are a minimum of 8 other restaurants, and bars with nightlife.
A small library is located inside of the Glade. 2 Banks are inside the Glade, and another two just outside the entrance. There is a Walk In clinic and an Optometrist and multiple veterinarian clinics.
Weigels opened a gas/convenience station at the Glade entrance, and the Kroger's inside the Village Mall inside FFG offers groceries. There are a minimum of TWO parks in the Glade.
There is an ABC store located just outside of the entrance as well as a Dollar General and a Family Dollar.
If I include everything that is INcorrect about the information found about FFG on areavibes, I would be doing their job. Please fix this. It's important to have accurate information.
I can't believe that you rated this area an "F" for amenities.........there is a Food City just minutes from the entrance to the Fairfield Glade community/resort. There are two restaurants, a post office, gift stores, and spa ON the property. Also, dining at the Golf Course clubs and marinas. There is a great custard stand five minutes down the road, and a sandwich shop and more restaurants. Ten minutes away - a major shopping area in Crossville with more restaurants & fast food, grocery, gas and a winery.
If you are looking beyond shopping & dining, Fairfield Glade itself has golf courses, pools, tennis, volleyball, basketball, horseback riding, etc open to residents & vacationers. Soon, it will have its own medical center.
This score really needs to be changed.
