With more horses per square mile than people, Ocala is unofficially known as Florida's "horse country"! True to its name, Ocala is home to the World Equestrian Center, with over 4,000 acres of land, including multiple indoor riding arenas, a five-star luxury hotel, and a fine dining restaurant with seating for 500 guests! In addition to the equestrian lifestyle, Ocala also offers activities for the outdoor enthusiast. Silver Springs State Park and Ocala National Forest are just a short drive away to enjoy wildlife, glass bottomed boat tours, and plenty of hiking!
