Ocala is nestled in a perfect location because it is approximately an hour’s drive to Orlando, the Gulf Coast, and the Eastern Atlantic coast of Florida. To be exact, the quaint little town is located in the county of Marion and is home to the enormously-sized national park, The Ocala National Forest. So, people who live in Ocala have the opportunity to live quietly and serenely while still being able to take short day trips to some extraordinary places.
