Mount Dora, a small central Florida city, was established in 1880. Since its development, it has been known for its small town charm, exciting community events, and antique shops. Mount Dora is a great place for guests looking to unwind and experience the softer side of Florida.
Mount Dora’s visitors can tour Lake Dora and the Dora Jungle Canal by way of Catboat when they rent and drive their own Catboat from Catboat Tours of Mount Dora, or sign up for a guided tour of the Dora Canal with Rusty Anchor Boat Tours, which showcases the natural beauty and wildlife in the Mount Dora area. Also spend the day fishing and exploring nature trails in dog-friendly Palm Island Park, or at Lake Apopka North Shore where they can spend their afternoon bird watching, hiking and biking, and horseback riding. Taking the excitement indoors, visitors can take a tour of Mount Dora’s various museums: the Mount Dora Museum of Speed, the Mount Dora Historical Society Museum, and the Modernism Museum which features an extensive collection of modernist art pieces from masters of the craft.
The historic downtown area of the city is where most of the popular vacation rentals are located- and for obvious reason. The downtown location means that the rentals are close to any events that may be taking place, restaurants, and shopping. There are rentals located on the edges of the city as well, though, which offer more privacy and a quieter atmosphere. All of the rentals have modern amenities and comforts such as internet, cable Tv, and large windows perfect for sightseeing.
The best time to visit is June through August if you want to make use of Florida’s warmest weather.
Mount Dora also boasts an abundance of eateries, cafes, and restaurants. Those looking to sample some local food can have lunch at the Highland Street Cafe, sample the seafood at Whale’s Tale Fish House, get in touch with Asian fare at Saigon Fusion, and delight in trying traditional German food at The Bavarian Haus.
What Mount Dora lacks in residents, it makes up for with fun annual activities. The city hosts a plethora of events each year including the Mount Dora Spring Festival, the Mount Dora Arts Festival, the Mount Dora Blueberry Festival, the Mount Dora Seafood Festival, and the Mount Dora Fall Craft Fair.
