With its strategic location, halfway between Ocala and Orlando at the intersection of I-4 and I-75, Wildwood is poised for further residential and commercial growth. The current population of more than 7,000 has tripled since the year 2000. Wildwood’s proximity to the booming retirement community of The Villages is one big reason for that growth. But Wildwood still retains much of its old Florida southern charm that it has had since 1881. Roadside fruit stands and Florida souvenir stores tell the tale of decades past when tourist heading south would pass through on their way to south Florida. Old train yards hearken back to the days when the town was a railroad hub. Centuries old oaks shade country roads and classic Southern homes, giving Wildwood a touch of Southern living in the heart of central Florida.
