Ocala’s vibrant downtown is unique in Central Florida. With a myriad of quirky restaurants, a theater, art galleries, a weekly farmers market, and one of the most stunning Winter Christmas Lights Display, Downtown Ocala provides hours of entertainment.
If you are feeling a bit peckish, why not try Harry’s Seafood Bar & Grille, Ocala’s most popular restaurant? They even have patio seating on the sidewalk for warm spring nights. Other amazing eateries include Marks Prime Steakhouse (also with outside dining) and the Sushi Bistro of Ocala.
If you walk one block west of the Downtown square, at the corner of Broadway and 1st ave, you will come to the Ocala Wine Experience, a quaint little shoppe which specializes in fine wines and cheeses. Enjoy tastes from around the world or pick up the perfect housewarming present. If you want to pick up a more decorative gift, then why not visit one of several art galleries on the square or a gourmet Chocolate
If your feet get tired from walking and shopping, you can take in a show or some improv comedy at the Insomniac Theater.
Other businesses located in the downtown are include the Chamber of Commerce & Economic Partnership, the Munroe Regional Medical Center, and the Ocala Regional Medical Center.
