If you’re looking for a small town with classic American homes, tall shady trees, and a population of less than a thousand, then Reddick is the town you’re looking for. It is an ideal location for retirees who want to enjoy their golden years away from metropolitan life. Traffic is never an issue in Reddick, but you might have to stop for deer, or a family of Sandhill Cranes, to cross the road.
Reddick’s halcyon atmosphere is tangible and puts people at ease right away. Some timeworn but sturdy old buildings still stand from an era long past: the brick Reddick State Bank building and the similarly constructed brick Reddick Auditorium which was part of the now defunct Reddick High School. There are placid bucolic scenes like farmers tending to their crops on acres of land and swaths of wide open fields where people ride horseback and enjoy the Floridan Sunsets.
There is a wide variety of wildlife in the area and will often wander into backyards at dusk. There are plenty of places to fish and hunt in and around Reddick twelve months out of the year. Gainesville is just a short trip away with its big box stores, restaurants, the University of Florida and South Eastern Conference college football. Reddick may not be a major citrus town like it was a century ago, but it is still a great place to live. Neighbors know one and other and strangers are treated like friends. There are a variety of natural treasures in the area to visit and enjoy. Kissimmee and Orlando theme parks are less than a two-hour car ride away and the Gulf of Mexico is about an hour drive away.
