We spend a lot of time here with our small children. They love to walk around the lighthouse & the boardwalk exploring. We always take amazing sunset pictures here. It's a great place to visit to walk or just find a park bench & relax!

The town is small, but wonderful. It is full of history and tall tales worth hearing. The lake view are relaxing and amazing at sunset. I highly recommend seeing the sun set over the water here. The air smells clean and crisp.

Capping off a nice evening by the lake. Near boat launch. Birds and gators. Quaint with plenty of benches to sit, relax and enjoy the view.

Mount Dora is a beautiful hidden gem, not far from the hustle and bustle of central Orlando. Lake Dora is a wonderful place to visit and I highly recommend driving along the W Old US Hwy 441 through Mount Dora then down Lakeshore Drive.
