Cool off at the Wild Waters water park. This park is a favorite attraction for local residents, as well as tourists. Don't be fooled by its size: that's a huge part of the attraction because it offers a much more relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place for people looking for a traditional water park experience without the crowds and long lines. For a taste of history, check out Fort King. The fort itself, constructed in 1827, no longer exists. However, you can look for the markers around the area that explain the history of the site and its significance.
Recurring Festivals and Events
When the nights begin to cool and the leaves begin to fall, you know it's time for the annual Ocala Harvest Fest Music & Food Truck Festival, held in the historic Tuscawilla Park. This exciting event takes place during the second week of November and features a full day of regional, national, and local musicians. Food trucks serve scrumptious eats throughout the day, and craft beer is available all over the grounds. The festival boasts two stages of live entertainment and various sales vendors. If you're around during the first weekend in March, come to the Habitat For Humanity Strawberry & Craft Festival for a wide selection of homemade goodies.
