Tell me about your city. I see from some of the posts that there are liberal Obama loving idiots there, but other than that what is Ocala like?

There are a couple here but there are plenty of right thinking people also, the obama people just have more time to be vocal. Not a bad town, smaller but close enough to large cities that we don't mind. Housing is cheap now but jobs are few so you may want to make sure you have one prior to the move. Lots of outdoors things to do and weather is great. It is an older town both in the buildings and also the thinking but some are trying to change it now. We moved from Texas and have not looked back until recently... Ocala.com is the local news site. A few good restaurants and some culture type things to do. From now till about April there are lots of events, art shows and festivals. After may th e summer starts and swimming and ac take center stage. What else do you want to know?

Thank you so much. My Mom lived there from 1993 until she passed away in Jan 2002 so I'm pretty familiar with how it was "back then". I always enjoyed visiting Ocala and love the weather. Coming from St Louis and having chronic bronchitis & allergies the Ocala area is heaven. What zip codes should I stay away from as far as crime, gangs, druggies, Obama Supporters, etc.? ;-)

Hard to say since within the same zip code you can have a large selection. Plus some nice areas have changed given the sharp decline in home values. If you have an idea let me know for now I would stay away from sw side, far Se side, and anything directly off hwy 200. Let me know what you find
