Marion County, in which Ocala is located is considered to be the Horse Capital of the World with numerous horse ranches, farms, as well as breeding and training facilities. We will be happy to help you find acreage if you wish to develop your own “ranch”.
Ocala is the county seat for Marion County, and is conveniently located in North Central Florida. Marion County is one of the fastest growing locales in Florida and as a result there are many jobs created for all ages. And if you are relocating for relaxation and for active lifestyle, don't worry because there is plenty to do for all ages.
There are several lakes and spring-fed rivers for boating, fishing, diving, water skiing, and other water sports. Within 1 1/2 hours you can be at the Gulf of Mexico for a day of fun, Daytona Beach, Disney World in Orlando, Clearwater Beach, and numerous other resort areas.
There are many retirement communities for adults 55+. Many of these communities have golf courses, swimming pools, tennis courts, restaurants, clubhouses, fitness centers, and other amenities.
In this part of Florida we experience only three season-Spring, Summer, and Fall. So there is no need for heavy coats. (Sorry, no ice and snow or at least very rarely.)
