Florida is the perfect state for vacation because travelers don't even have to head to the coast for a good time. Areas inland can offer incredible adventures as well, and one of the best examples of this is the gorgeous city of Ocala. This fun northern Florida city is packed full of exciting attractions, but it's primarily known for its lucrative and widespread horse industry. In fact, it's one of only five cities in the world that can claim to be the Horse Capital, according to the Chamber of Commerce guidelines. More from this guide...

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Ocala, FL discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Ocala hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Ocala, as it is known today, dates back to the mid-19th century when it was first built up around the remnants of Ford King. Back then, citrus was its primary industry, until the Great Freeze occurred in 1894. That wasn't the only hardship Ocala pushed through, however, as most of the downtown area burned down in 1883. When it was rebuilt using less flammable materials, Ocala gained a reputation throughout Florida as the “Brick City.”

As Ocala pushed forward, it eventually entered the mid-20th century, when its first thoroughbred horse farm was opened. That industry quickly grew as Ocala-bred horses gained fame by winning numerous individual Triple Crown races, with Affirmed winning all three.

Whether you love horses or the sweet feeling of a calm Florida city, you'll need to find a place to stay during your Ocala adventure. Finding the right hotel is key to enjoying your experience, and you'll find exactly what you need in Ocala whether you're looking for affordability, luxury, or something in between.

When to Visit Ocala, FL

For the most part, Ocala is comfortable enough to visit all year long. Florida weather is typically warm and pleasant, but be wary of a few weeks in the summer when the heat can get a bit too intense. All the summer months have average high temperatures reaching 90 degrees, but August can be consistently hot compared to the other summer months, with an average mean temperature of 80 degrees. June, however, has the highest temperatures overall. If you're looking to get away from the cold, there's no better place. Average lows in the dead of winter don't even come close to freezing, and average highs in January are nearly 70 degrees.

While Ocala is certainly warm, it can get fairly rainy at times. July is the worst month for precipitation, as the daily chance of rain is around 29 percent. All of summer tends to have relatively high chances of rain, but August is your best bet if you're looking for a dry summer trip. On the other hand, late fall and early winter hardly experience any rain at all. March is notably dry as well, with just a 9-percent daily chance of rain. November is the best, however, with just a measly 3-percent chance of rain daily.

As is the case with most Florida cities, the busiest time for travelers in Ocala is the summer. The weather can be downright gorgeous, but you should expect lodging prices to be a bit higher than usual. If you're looking to save on your hotel, spring and winter are your best bets. If you're looking for warm weather, Ocala may be too cool in the winter, but the spring season offers a warm and dry experience that many travelers are sure to enjoy.
