What to do in Ocala
It’s no wonder that Ocala is known as the “Horse Capital of the World.” Hundreds of beautiful horse farms dot the landscape filled with miles of fencing and thousands of
horses. So, if you need more of a horse fix, be sure to check out Horse Farm Tours of Ocala.
If you feel like zip lining from the treetops, here’s your chance. Canyons Zip Line & Canopy Tours offers Florida’s only true canopy tour. With two spectacular canyons and
four lakes, this is an amazing zip lining adventure!
Did you know that the Tarzan movies were filmed in Ocala? They were – at Silver Springs, one of Ocala’s best-known gems. Silver Springs is what natives call “old Florida” – untouched, natural beauty! And you can see it all from a kayak with Silver Springs Kayaking. From alligators, manatees, even wild monkeys, and a variety of birds species, it’s an adventure you don’t want to miss. They also have miles of beautiful paved walking trails all around the park.
If you’re a museum aficionado, check out the Appleton Museum of Art. The museum’s permanent collections of approximately 18,000 objects include European, American,
Asian, African, Contemporary and pre-Columbian art and artifacts, and a series of temporary traveling exhibitions are presented throughout the year. The museum is also
building a collection of works of Florida artists which relates directly to the history and cultural heritage of the Central Florida community.
Why settle for ordinary when you can do something Axe-traordinary? How about a little axe throwing at The Firehouse Urban Axe Throwing. No experience is needed, and they say that they will help you bring out your inner Bad-Axe.
Ever wanted to just escape? Here’s your chance at The Ocala Escape, Ocala’s Premier Escape Room Experience! You have 60 minutes to escape from an immersive room where you’ll take part in the story of your choosing. Just let us know if you go so we can come break you out and get you back in time for your classes.
Of course, there’s more to do in Ocala – great restaurants in Downtown Ocala on the square, wine tastings, and nightly music. Check with the concierge at the WEC hotel for
more information or visit their “Things to Do in Ocala” page on their website.
