Discover Pristine Nature and Spirited Horses!
Tucked in north central Florida, Ocala in Marion County is a retiree’s dream come true. Ocala’s natural oasis of freshwater streams, rolling hills and clean air remain untainted—it’s no wonder the area has been used for many Hollywood movies!
Surround yourself in the hush of mighty oak trees and graceful trellises of Spanish moss. Leisurely canoe along the largest sand pine forest, or visit nearby Silver Springs, a national landmark and nature theme park on 350 gorgeous acres. Ocala is the proud capital of Florida’s thoroughbred industry. Riding, ranching, and horse-breeding are among the most popular activities in this charming region of the state.
