Mount Dora

Mount Dora is more than a hundred years old, but colorful festivals and a vibrant downtown give it a youthful, carefree vibe. The city’s hip restaurants, live music, and an array of outdoor activities will knock a few years off your age.

It’s also a stunner – stately Victorian homes and live oaks draped with Spanish moss greet you the moment you set foot here. The shopping district with its cobblestone streets exudes old world charm, while the glimmering lakes that surround the city truly make it “Someplace Special.”

Mount Dora is a 40-minute drive from downtown Orlando, and is almost exactly in the center of Florida. Over 13,000 full-time residents call it home.
