Wiersdale is just outside of Ocala, in Central East Florida. Horse breeding is a serious business here, and more than one winner of the Kentucky Derby and Breeders' Cups have been raised and trained in Marion County - one of only four major thoroughbred centers in the world. The 600 thoroughbred farms in the Ocala area are responsible for 45 national champions. Lodge in Wiersdale Florida Bed and Breakfasts when in the region searching for the next champion.
Opportunities for outdoor recreation are practically endless here. The Ocala National Forest was one of the first national forests east of the Mississippi, and was established in 1908 not only to protect the forests, but to protect the "significant archeological, historic, geological, and botanical wonders" found there. Swim in deep, clear Salt Springs, or canoe down Juniper Run, a winding waterway shaded by old-growth trees. Fish on Lake Dorr and drive the Florida Black Bear Scenic Byway, which traverses the Ocala National Forest.
The Greenway Trail System is a corridor of green that runs from Inglis, on the Gulf Coast, to Palatka, on the Atlantic Ocean. The trail travels 110 miles through forests, swamp, and grassland. Some sections of the trail are open only to mountain bikes, some to hikers and horseback riders. All are worth traveling.
In addition to unparalleled recreational opportunities, Wiersdale Florida Bed and Breakfasts are close to the several interesting landmarks, historic sites, and museums. The Florida Carriage Museum showcases authentic 19th century carriages. The Marjorie Rawlings Homestead reveals much about the Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Yearling. The Dade Battlefield Historic Site marks the battle that started the Second Seminole war in 1835.
