Rolling hills and horse farms greet guests of Ocala Florida Bed and Breakfasts. In town, one finds a sizable historic district with many Victorian buildings, antique shops and eateries. This is old Florida - peaceful, beautiful, charming, and ideal for a vacation.
There is an excellent museum in Ocala; the Appleton Museum of Art has an impressive collection of art ranging from Colombian to Islamic. It also brings in a wide variety of traveling shows. The Fine Arts for Ocala Annual Autumn Arts show draws tens of thousands of people to town.
Silver Springs natural theme park is known for encompassing more artisan springs than any other place in the States. These springs pump out 550 million gallons of water each day. The waters of the Silver River are incredibly clear, and glass-bottomed tour boats afford amazing views of the underwater spring formations at the head of the river. Silver Springs Park is also a National Historic Landmark with botanical gardens, wildlife viewing, and a working archeological dig site.
Ocala National Forest features hundreds of lakes, more than 20 spring-fed springs, and two major rivers. It is, simply put, paradise for outdoor recreation enthusiasts. Part of the Florida National Scenic Trail runs through the forest and past the remains of early homesteads made famous in The Yearling - the book by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings.
Biking is another popular activity in and around Ocala. Guests of Ocala Florida Bed and Breakfasts bring or rent mountain bikes and head to Barge Canal Rock Pits, part of the Santos Trail, or the Marshall Swamp Trail. These trail systems are part of the Cross Florida Greenway, which connects the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean.
