Explore Ocala, a great town to call home!
Ocala is a rapidly growing metropolitan area in North Central Florida. Many choose to settle here because of our reputation as the “Horse Capital of the World”. This title is reflective of a bucolic countryside of rolling hills and pastures dotted with innovative horse farms. Of course, these enterprises are famous for breeding and training almost every equine species known to man. We also excitingly note that Ocala’s thoroughbreds represent us with distinction in the Triple Crown races every year. As an outstanding example, Triple Crown champion Affirmed, was foaled and trained here. Additionally, the opening of Ocala’s Word Equestrian Center is a game changer. It will make Ocala a global attraction. As a result, the local economy will flourish and grow exponentially over the next decade. With this growth will come an ever expanding array of dining, recreational and entertainment options.
The area is also becoming a center for the arts. Of course, the College of Central Florida Theater, the Central Florida Symphony and the Ocala Civic Theater lead the way. Additionally, the Brick City Center for the Arts Improv Troupe and the Marion Ballet Theater offer stimulating performances year around. However, we saved the best for last. The Appleton Museum of Art truly put Ocala’s art scene on the map. Its galleries boast outstanding collections of masterworks and ancient artifacts.
