I want to see if anyone could give me some info re: the Ocala area. For the past 3 years my cousins and I have taken our kids to visit Dunnellon and gone to Rainbow Springs for the 4th of July weekend. After this past visit I just canít get enough of the area. I really love the area and I am ready to make a move. I was wondering if you could help me out with some information as I am interested in purchasing a home in the area but I want to know where the BEST areas are. I do not know anyone who lives in Ocala so I am fishing for info. from people who live there. Could you tell me the better areas in Ocala that are nice areas to live in and have good schools. I am a single mom with an 11 year old son so I am looking for a safe area with good schools. I am looking for something with at least 1 acre, no more than 2. I am looking for a 1 story, 3 br, 2+ bath, 2 car garage, screened patio with or w/o pool. If you have the time, I would so appreciate it if you could give me information and your opinion of the surrounding areas. Any info would be appreciated.
Thank you,

Where are you coming from?

What kind of work do you do?

Ocala is a smaller city and if you need fancy brew pubs, varied nightlife options and high end shopping, Ocala would not be a good move.

When you live in a smaller city employment opportunities are not as varied as a larger metro like Orlando, Jacksonville or Tampa.

Some people like the slower pace of life, they dont call it Slow-cala for nothing
