We live where it is considered sub-tropical. We are nature lovers searching for a house with backyard that might have a stream or chain of lakes to kayak, in an area that is easy to hike and bike, etc. Is there any such area around Ocala?

Lake Weir or Silver Springs Shores come to mind.

Yes, we are in zone 10B. I believe there are areas even in Florida that are less soupy.

Uh, not sure about you finding less humidity here. Ocala doesn't get the ocean breezes or any breezes for that matter, unless a storm is coming.. and it's as hot & humid as S. FL, but the winters are way better. It'll be in the 20's here tonight.

Ocala is surrouned by hiking, and all sorts of springs and lakes for water sports.

It doesn't matter if you are in zone 10B or 100B, Florida is in the HUMID zone. No way around it.

Try Google maps. Good way to see what the area looks like.

Also, good luck on that back yard thing - make sure you don't try and go barefoot, or actually attempt to SIT on your lawn. The fire ants will eat you alive.

As for kayaking, it's all great, just don't fall in the water unless you enjoy playing with snakes and gators.

Good luck finding mountains to climb in Florida...

As for humidity, I suggest you move to Arizona or New Mexico. Or western Georgia for that matter. St. Pete might work. Ocala, not so much.

Hernando, FL......there are some nice waterfront homes on Parson's Point Rd. just east of US 41 on Lake Tsala Apopka that is a chain of lakes and right across the street there is a bike trail that parallels US 41 that goes from Inverness to Dunellon and probably further.
