Tourists and new residents should take advantage of a ride through the lakes via the canals to hear oral history and see many winter homes originally built by wealthy moguls, magnates and industrialists.

We were recommended this by a friend and it didn't disappoint! We arrived and where on a boat within 15 mins.... A quite tour of 6 lakes with a very funny but informative skipper!! Well worth the money.

Wear a hat, relax and enjoy the "scenic" and entertaining tour! Delightful experience, including comments about natural habit for birds & waterlife! A must on your list for northern family and friends, because Central Florida is more than commercial attractions.
