Mt. Dora is a quaint, historic, little town (pop. 9200) with the true flavor of the deep south. It is located 30 miles northwest of Orlando and seems worlds away from the modern highways & city, and multitudes of bustling theme parks nearby. It is also at the highest point in Florida, but don't bother bringing your skiis, it's a whopping 150 feet above sea level! The historic downtown area is full of specialty stops, antique stores, restaurants and a few bed & breakfasts. Just a couple of blocks away is Lake Dora where there are parks, nature walks, fishing and boating.
- Pros:small town feel, on a lake, lots of nature, shopping & restaurants
- Cons:they've got some big gators in the lake
View wildlife from the boardwalk/nature trail. There are alligators here also with many signs warning not to feed them. more travel advice
The holiday lights at Donnelly Park....a fabulous display, although you can't tell by the photo. more travel advice
