Drove over to Mt. Dora one afternoon....you pass thru lots of lovely farm country and signs that say "Bear Crossing", but I didn't see any...thank goodness. It seemed as if I was going nowhere, when suddenly I was in Mt. Dora and all its luxurious ammenities. I was told I had to see it cause of it having a wonderful historic district...similar to Sanford. I found it to be more formal and pristine than Sanford. Gorgeous homes along the water...a lovely drive. The business district has lots of upscale shops and neat restaurants. Very "chi-chi" hotel overlooking the lake...generally beautiful all around.
