It's home to the Ocala National Forest where you can enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, bird watching and other outdoor activities. Ocala and surrounding Marion County have some of the most beautiful freshwater streams and rolling hills and have been featured in Hollywood movies. Silver Springs State Park is one of Florida's most treasured landscapes. It's one of the largest artesian springs ever discovered.
