Entrance - On Top of the World

This is one of several entrances to On Top of the World, which is a 55 plus community located in southwest Ocala. OTOW occupies almost 13,000 acres of land purchased by developer Sidney Colen in 1981. Over the years the community has grown to include over 4,000 homes, three golf courses, and numerous other amenities.

Strange name, if you ask me. Ok, nobody did... I'll be quiet now.

Very up to date graphics in the signage.

The link you provided indicates that this is a community for very active adults. I would assume that it is quite beautiful, and probably expensive, too.

The entrance is lush and green!

Looks like there's nice landscaping when you're on top of the world.

I would say the developer had a good handle on what Boomers want when they retire.

Over 55 might the young Floridians!

I'm not going to say what I want to say but I like the shrubs. They look like Versailles!

I would expect it to be on a mountain top with that name. I didn't know there were mountains in Florida.
I must say, it's very pretty.

BTW I love the new banner photo too.

I hope you've enjoyed your golf today.
We went on a trip out in the blue and ended up i a very nice place.
Please enjoy what's left of your Sunday.

Four thousand homes on top of the world? Oh well, more room for those of us down here.
;)

I never think of Florida as being on top of the world. Hmmm. Lapland, Greenland, Iceland, Siberia or even Canada...but never Florida. :) I'd say Colen did very well for himself, though.

I think you can find one of these communities in most cities but not with an interesting name like this.

I think the entrance is very beautiful green....
