Itinerary

Overview

Ocala & Silver Springs

This is a true weekend getaway!  Away from your day, away from the hustle and bustle.  We chose Silver Springs for a weekend getaway because it is one of the first tourist attractions in Florida. Several movies and TV shows were filmed here including Tarzan.  The glass bottom boat tour is fantastic. Silver Spring is America’s largest spring. Live oaks dripping with Spanish moss provide a beautiful backdrop for this area.

Ocala is considered by many as the Horse Capital of the World – home to over 600 thoroughbred farms and home to triple crown winner American Pharoah. The rolling hills, wooden fences, spectacular barns, and lush pastures – feels like we are in Kentucky!  You don’t have to be a “horse person” to enjoy this trip but you’ll likely come away one!
