Took a boat tour on lake which we really enjoyed. Thought of taking plane ride and we really should have.. Lake doesn't seem overrun with boaters - mostly pontoon boats with people going out for a day in the sun. Great sunsets - beautiful night...More

The lake is loaded with wildlife & very few boats. From our boat we saw an eagle family, alligator and turtles sunning.

Mount Dora and Lake Dora is such a wonderful spot to enjoy, it is perfect to get away from the snow and winter in the northeast without all the congestion of other florida locations.

I always enjoy my day trips to Mt. Dora. Lovely Main Street with a variety of shops owned by the locals. The second floor restaurant with balcony seating caters to dogs. Small town ambience.
