    SHELTER IN PLACE IS BRINGING BACK SUNDAY DRIVES

    As the cabin fever settles in and your itch to get out of the house intensifies during Shelter-in-Place Orders, you might be wondering what you can do to get a change of scenery! Luckily, there is still a way you can cure your craving without putting others at risk. The problem rests within crowds of people, not necessarily the place in which they congregate. But since parks, beaches, hiking trails, etc. attract people, it can be risky, and you must use caution if you are to visit such places. Not going in groups, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and wearing a mask are among some precautions you HAVE to take. Above all else, make sure to follow Local, State, or National Public Health recommendations.

    But, we need to keep our sanity! Staying cooped-up is a toll on everyone’s mental health, whether you live in a one-bedroom apartment or a mansion. We must preserve our mental health, or else we will experience a surplus of stress, which will cause us to be more susceptible to getting sick! With that being said, you must think creatively about what you can do during these times. If going to a park is becoming too dangerous, and staying home is becoming unbearable, what can you do?

    Go on a scenic Sunday Drive! Remember the good ole days when you’d get in your, or your friend’s car, and drive with no destination insight? Well, the Pandemic is bringing back Sunday Drives, and it turns out, there’s no wrong way to do it. Roll the windows down, turn on your favorite tunes, and see where the asphalt takes you. Take this opportunity to scout for places you will stop at when the Pandemic is in our rearview. Bring a notebook and write down vintage shops, restaurants, and pull-over areas along the way so you can go back and enjoy the drive even more next time! Here are our top picks for the most beautiful roads to cruise in our area:

    475A:
    Certainly a nice drive with roughly 8 miles of road and horse farms a plenty. Perfect views for sunsets!


    Ocala National Forest:
    With nearly 100 miles of paved roads slicing through dense forests - the Ocala National Forest is an excellent destination to enjoy a scenic drive.

    Historic Downtown Ocala:
    If urban views are more your thing, take a cruise through the city and neighborhood streets of Downtown Ocala with homes and buildings dating back to the 1800's.


    Highway 328:
    Another stretch of beautiful country side, this drive is nothing short of spectacular with an endless sea of grand daddy oak trees and farm fields.
