|One of the most miserably hot places on the planet. Rivals Houston and New Orleans for stifling summer heat without a breath of air. I spent a week there one day in July. Could not go outside. And I have lived in Florida most of my life......|

|Ocala Is A Great Choice For Retirement|
|Ocala, Florida is a great choice for retirees looking for the perfect combination of great warm weather, relax and uncrowded Florida living, exceptional lifestyle and very affordable prices. There are several excellent planned communities for over-55 retirement living, most featuring golf, an extensive amenities package, and a variety of home options. For example, SummerGlen ([url]http://www.topretirements.com/reviews/Florida/Ocala,%20FL/SummerGlen.html[/url])offers a well-maintained 18-hole golf club with full service restaurant, a large Residents Club with beach entry pool, fitness center, crafts center and meeting rooms, softball diamond, and many options in sports and recreations. And home prices at SummerGlen start at just $159,900. The community is entirely resident-owned, so monthly maintenance fees are very affordable (the current fee of $125, even provides lawn-mowing included, plus use of all facilities except golf, which is also a resident-owned equity club.) Check out the SummerGlen retirement community and other great communities in the Ocala area when you're thinking about retiring in Florida.|
