I really enjoyed the boat tour of Lake Virginia and the other lakes that were connected by the canals. Good views of the expensive real estate in Winter Park and the local guide was knowledgeable and provided a running commentary on the history of Winter Park and of some of the houses that I found extremely interesting. Highly recommended.

The most beautiful Sunset in Winter Park, you can paddle to Winter Park Lake chain, Mizel Lake and Osceola Lake. It's a relaxing way to spend an hour seeing how the rich and famous have built some beautiful lakefront property narrated by a local who adds a little background to the history.

We took a boat trip on this & other lakes connected to it. This is a very ritzy area, with gorgeous & expensive waterfront homes. It's a lovely way to while away an hour or so. Canals connect the various lakes to each other.
