Has anyone ever lived there or spent the winter there? We went through the town but didn't have the time to really check things out before leaving for home. We plant to stay at a Resort there, not too far outside the town, next winter. How is the shopping and restaurants?

I live in the area. Are you referring to the City of Silver Springs (Northeast of Ocala) or Silver Springs Shores (Southeast of Ocala) ?

Either way you'll probably end up going into ocala to shopping and restaurants anyway. Silver Springs doesn't have much, although I think the Walmart is technically in Silver Springs. Restaurants in Silver Springs is limited to a couple mom & pop diners and, if you count the Walmart area, Bob Evans, BK and Steak n Shake. The Shores is getting a Walmart of their own, and there's a few fast food places, but I don't think there's any sit down restaurants. They're both basically Ocala anyway

The CG is a few miles out past the city of Silver Springs, going east, just off that main road. I think the road was 40. Silver Springs would be the closest shopping and stores.

Thanks for this info. If there's one pizza place and a Chinese restaurant, we'll be happy. If we get a hunger for something more "uptown" we can always drive into Ocala. We haven't been to Silver Spring Shores but there is a WalMart on the main road only about 5 miles from the Resort we'll be staying at.
