The Ocala Lifestyle: Horse Farms, The Arts, Nature & More
Our Ocala Lifestyle newsletter features much more than real estate news. Of course, we are proud of Ocala’s reputation as the horse capital of the world. Therefore, we feature equestrian events and news throughout the year. However, life in Ocala is about much more than the horse industry. Our city is within easy reach of historic sights, beautiful state parks, natural springs and sandy beaches. We are also a short drive away from great zoos, Disney’s amazing amusement parks, interesting museums and world class art galleries. Additionally, our city offers an ever expanding dining scene, quality educational opportunities and exciting networking gatherings. We feature each of these integral parts of the Ocala lifestyle in our newsletter.
Of course, several of the outstanding museums and art galleries are within Ocala’s city limits. However, one stands out above the rest, the Appleton Museum of Art. It features over 80,000 square feet of galleries which display the world class art collection of industrialist Arthur Appleton. The displays include 18th and 19th century masterpieces by American and European artists, extraordinary contemporary collections and pre columbian artifacts.
The Ocala Lifestyle: A Day Trip To St. Petersburg’s Dali Museum
A little farther away sit two of my favorite Central Florida museums. The Ringling Museum highlights Sarasota, while the Dali Museum gives St. Petersburg worldwide recognition. Undoubtedly, the latter intrigues me the most. Some years ago, A. Reynolds and Eleanor Morse gifted their renowned collection of Dali masterworks to the City of St. Petersburg. Without doubt, there is no other collection like it in the world. The Morse collection features over twenty four hundred of the artist’s best known surrealistic works of art. In order to provide the appropriate setting for this amazing gift, the city commissioned renowned architects. Their task was to build an ultramodern museum worthy of displaying Dali’s amazing creations on a spectacular waterfront lot. Indeed, they succeeded beyond all expectations.
Read our personal anecdote about discovering the existence of this amazing museum while traveling across the world on another continent. You will find it featured in the New Year’s 2021 edition of our newsletter.
