With 42 public schools, 26 private schools, Webster College, Webster University, Central Florida College and other innovative programs, our area is keeping pace with rapid changes in today’s world. The plentiful parks, golf courses, libraries, art museum, civic theatre and world class Silver Springs offer opportunities to relax and enjoy life.
Designated as the “Horse Capital of The World” by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Ocala’s more than 900 farms and training centers are home to many different breeds of horses.
