Lovely lake with nice boardwalk to do a morning or evening stroll. Marina was all lit up for the Christmas season and was amazing. Great boat launch for anyone interested.

Wonderful restaurants,shopping a great walking town. People are friendly seem very content. If you are lucky enough to be there during Christmas it’s special.

I believe that this town and the hotels handle this weekend poorly. For two years now they tell you can't have a room at their development. And many hotels do this one year prior. This will eventually backfire. It is bad business for the hotels...More

There is parking but once parked, it's best to just walk slowly and take in all the shops and sights.

Historic Downtown is a must see while in Mount Dora. Quaint little shops, VERY unique. Lakeside Inn seemed to be the lodging of choice. Everyone is very friendly. Would like to go back again soon.

I love Downtown Mount Dora. It reminds me of a Key West/ Bourbon Street vibe. You can park and walk anywhere, including to Lake Dora. The pier was quiet and so relaxing. You can take a cruise on the lake as well.

You have to see it to appreciate it. You won't be sorry. The festivals here are amazing. It's most beautiful at Christmas time. Quaint little New England feel town but without being cold.

The views of Lake Dora from the shores of Mount Dora are unlike any other in Florida. It's a serene yet populous town that is begging to be explored.

The nature walk starts right past the little picnic area that is down from the lighthouse. I know they have been redoing a lot of the boardwalk down further. When I was there a few weeks ago there were 3 gators out sunning... More

Unless you want to ride a steam train, as I am aware some people are just into riding these types of trains, it wasn't anything special.
