Ocala, Silver Springs Florida

Posted in Amusement Parks, Haunted America, Historical City, The Old South at 10:18 pm by Kendal

PICT0102 There is few places left that are naturally nice but central florida is one one of them.  It is a hidden treasure away from the beach seen.  The city of Ocala has many historic features, musems, hotels and night life to keep anyone entertained.  It still hosts the charm of a small town but hides many great theaters and dining.  Ocala  is one truly, tradional, beautiful florida city to visit.

On the outskirts is a park called silver springs that is much fun with its glass bottom boats and water so pure you can see the bottom of the river.  There is also Ocala national forest that is too good to pass up.  You can see many cracker old florida homesteads, alligators, monkeys, tropical plants; and etc to make you loose track of time.

After falling in love with central florida… I now consider this my part time residence and where my writers cottage is.
