Plenty of yard for outdoor sports (family game of two hand touch football is fun!) Although you are in the forest, local attractions such as Disney World and other attractions are a short hour and a half ride away. Several natural springs are with in a thirty minute drive. Other activities such as horseback riding, zip lining, mountain biking, kayaking, canoeing, and hiking are located a reasonable distance away. Grocery shopping is 5 minutes away, as well as a well stocked public library. 40 minutes will get you into Ocala/Silver Springs where you will find ample dining and shopping for your pleasure. Winter activities include hunting, fishing, Christmas tree cutting, ATV riding-all of which require permits, but are minutes away. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 52-8016896915-8More

About the neighbourhood
The Ocala National Forest is a beautiful and peaceful area where you can find many fresh water springs. You can swim, snorkle, dive, rent kayaks and canoes. The water in the springs is 72 degrees year round. There is much to do, especially if you like the outdoors. Santos Trail Head boasts some of the states best mountain bike trails (bring your helmet!) they also rent bikes at the Santos Bike Shop. If you bring your ATV or other off roading vehicles, you will find hundreds of miles of groomed trails in the forest, a three day pass costs $10 per vehicle. There are endless lakes and rivers to fish on or go boating. You can book a scalloping tour during scalloping season out of Crystal River, which is about an hour away.
