The things you love.

This family-friendly area of town is where you’ll find unique shops, boutiques, and restaurants, each with its own personality. Known as “the Festival City,” you’ll also get to take part in one of its many year-round festivals that celebrate things like art, seafood, Earth day, plants and gardens, the holidays, and more!


Peace and quiet. Many parts of the Sunshine State may be known for bustling nightlife, loud restaurants, and hoards of tourists, but Mount Dora provides an endless respite from this “typical” Florida lifestyle. From the charming streets downtown to the sparking beauty of the lake, everywhere you go feels like a breath of fresh air. Enjoy beautiful blue skies and sunshine, local shops and restaurants where people know your name, and the ability to take a stroll downtown with nothing but peace and quiet.
