"Small Town Florida that "looks" like California" Howey in the Hills by annk
Howey in the Hills Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 16 photos
Howey-In-The-Hills is a small town in central Florida, just 35 minutes away from Orlando. I wouldn't consider it to be a tourist destination unless you are an avid golfer as it is known for it's beautiful Spanish Colonial golf resort the Mission Inn. There are two courses , Las Colinas & El Campeon, the later consistently rated one of the best in Florida.
You would think you were in California between the Spanish architecture of the Mission Inn and the nearby Marina named Marina Del Rey (also a well known coastal area of L.A.).
Ok, all of Howey doesn't have the Spanish charm. The center of town is very basic with one traffic light, a gas station, liquor & grocery store, library, police station and a restaurant.
- Pros:The Mission Inn and its golf courses, the lake, no crowds or congestion
- Cons:one blink and you're thru the town
While walking to the lake on the boardwalk we did see 4 baby gators, barely visible through the green soup like waters... more travel advice
The presence of bald eagles along the shores of Lake Harris was totally unexpected. We must have seen 3 pair. Florida... more travel advice
