Ocala, Florida Offers Much to See and Do
When you step outside of the community you will enjoy many convenient activities in the neighborhood. Ocala, part of Marion County in Florida, is officially the Horse Capital of the World and home to over 400 thoroughbred farms and training centers. Ocala features the World Equestrian Center, the largest equestrian complex in the United States, HITS Horse Show, a world-class hunter/jumper horse show, and Gypsy Gold Horse Farm.
With a large residential Historic District, less than a mile away, Ocala boasts many excellent examples of Victorian architecture, including many that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Ocala’s Downtown Square offers a blend of boutiques, salons, restaurants, live music, casual and upscale dining, and art and cultural exhibits.
Ocala is also known for nearby Silver Springs, home of one of the largest artesian spring formations in the world, and Silver Springs State Park, one of the earliest tourist attractions in Florida and home of the world-famous glass bottom boat rides!
Biking and jogging enthusiasts will enjoy our easy access to the Cross Florida Greenway-Santos Bike Trail where they can do their thing while reconnecting with nature.
Since Ocala features more than 600 lakes and rivers it offers many opportunities for fishing, swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, and boating. Nearby Rainbow Springs State Park is a great place to go canoeing, kayaking, tubing, and camping. If you are more of a “beach bum,” you are just one hour to either the Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, since we are located right in Central Florida!
