Ocala, a small agricultural and manufacturing center, is about halfway between Gainesville to the north and Orlando to the southeast. With its attractive tree-lined streets and Old South-style homes, it more resembles a typical southern city than a Florida city or beach town. Ocala is the capital of Florida's thoroughbred industry. Ranching and horse-breeding are popular. Just east of town, is the Ocala National Forest, a preserve of Florida pines, cypress and hardwood trees with water and plenty of recreation. The area has above average historic and natural interest. manufacturing is mostly light with household goods, auto party and some electronics manufacturing, and recent employment trends are favorable. Cost of living and housing, following Florida trends, has increased. The location is a bit isolated from Orlando's services and amenities. The level area is characterized by a mix of open land and areas of medium sized trees, some tropical in nature.
Located in central Florida, about one hour north of Orlando.
