Seriously Tallrick, consider Lake County / Marion around Ocala National.
Closer to the sea, I still have some suggestions.
Hi Friend:

Do you have any additional suggestions?

The frontier is in Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas... Florida's open spaces are all within 30-40 minutes (east and west) of large cities.. for example on the west coast is Tampa, in the middle going east is Orlando, continuing east is Cocoa Beach.. in between there are small towns, back roads, cows, rusty cars, you name it, you can find it. The same is happening between Gainesville and I-95 (between Flagler & St. Augustine) connecting all those "little" towns with highway traffic. It makes it convenient, but bad for those who are looking for peace and quiet in their paradise. Florida has been and always will be growing with an influx of north easterners who want cheap accommodations for retirement and things to be the way they were back home. So, my recommendation is have a 5- year plan and be prepared for change where ever you go in Florida. Take your time and travel the state and find a town that doesn't have a hotel/motel or a Walmart! Then spend time there, talk to the locals, it is the only way you will find out about "behind the scenes" rules, regulations and business if you really want to be "out there". My family moved here in 1958... talk about change! Paradise is in the eye of the beholder... some people want to live in a paradise like Disney's Celebration, others see a small town like Mora, NM as paradise. I prefer viewing the hustle and bustle of Florida from a boat ;-) Only problem is.. it is hard to affort the dockage these days.
