Anthony, Florida is peaceful little town of old, stately, Spanish moss-covered oaks and majestic pines. Just northeast of Ocala it is famous being home to Jumbolair Aviation Estates where one can park an airplane at their home. Around twenty-thousand people live in Anthony and it offers a friendly small town feel while being just minutes away from both Interstate 75 and U.S. 301.
Horse farms are abundant in and around Anthony which allows ample opportunity for horseback riding on the edge of the Ocala National Forest. Anthony has the feel of a Southern Georgia town with its pine forests and plantation style architecture. The neighborhoods are quaint and well kept. It’s a place where the crickets serenade at night and fireflies dance in the woods. It is as if you stepped back in time to an era where neighbors all knew each other and homes were unique.
Sitting in one’s own back yard allows the chance to see wildlife such as deer, fox, bear, and osprey. Anthony is perfect for fishing and hunting enthusiasts, there are numerous locations around the area for both activities. Perhaps the most attractive thing about the town of Anthony is the slower pace. There is a sense of being at peace when you stroll through the noble forests that surround the town. There is something about the smell of pine and ground covered with needles that causes a de-stressing effect, one that can only be found in wilderness towns like Anthony. It is fortunate that the town did not become a railroad hub as first intended in the late nineteenth century. Time may have passed in Anthony, but it is not too far off from the first log cabins built by settlers among the serene flatwoods all those years ago.
