We boat to Mt. Dora every 1 to 2 weeks utilizing The Dora Canal into Lake Dora. Always a great trip across the beautiful lake. We watch the seaplanes taking off and landing and see the beautiful homes that adorn the lake. 2 weeks ago...More

This is a huge lake with amazing views especially at sunset. We have been to dinner at several restaurants and watched the sail boats racing or watched the sunset. Beautiful.

The boat ride was very enjoyable and relaxing. For those of us who live in FL, seeing a blue heron or an alligator are common. The boat ride was more enjoyable that seeing these species

Rode from Mt. Dora to Tavares in Nov., 2017. Little traffic, there's a bike lane, ppl are used to bicycles there. It was out and back, but still scenic, flat, not too windy, and very enjoyable. Both towns are fun to explore.

We visited several parks on the lake, and did some boating on it. We thought that it was beautiful. Saw some alligators too!

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.
