The boating and bass fishing are sublime, and there are plenty of courses to keep the golfers in the group happy. Pack a picnic and try your hand at shuffleboard in the local green spaces. Hit the bike paths and take in the famous sunset views. You'll quickly discover why Mount Dora is nicknamed "Festival City" – there's nearly always an art, music, or food festival going on. Snag a one-of-a-kind vintage souvenir at Renninger's Antique Center, a long-time local favorite.

    There's a marvelous museum to suit every taste

    A Mount Dora vacation rental is heaven for museum buffs. There are too many to list, but a couple of the most intriguing include the Mount Dora Museum Of Speed, showcasing muscle cars, automobile memorabilia, and classic Americana in a replica art deco building, and the Mount Dora History Museum, set in a former jail. Art lovers will want to check out the Modernism Museum Mount Dora and the Mount Dora Center for the Arts. Be sure to glimpse the iconic red-and-white-striped Mount Dora Lighthouse, one of only three freshwater lighthouses in the state.

    Things are heating up in central Florida

    Leave the winter coats behind when you head to your Mount Dora vacation rental. Be prepared for temperatures in the 90s or even higher in the summer months of June to September (sunscreen is a must). That time of year you'll also see daily rainstorms passing through, so take advantage of the time to sneak in a quick nap. In the coldest months of December and January, highs are still in the upper 60s, while lows can drop into the 40s overnight. Hurricanes are most prominent in September and October, so check the forecast in advance.

    Spoler alert: There's no mount in Mount Dora

    You may assume that the town takes its name from a mountain, but there are no peaks to be found here. What the area lacks in elevation it makes up for in lakes, with more bodies of water than you can count. Set in the Harris Chain of Lakes, you'll find numerous conservation areas nearby, which are home to otters, bobcats, and several species of birds, as well as plenty of thriving local plants. Just keep your eyes peeled for alligators – it wouldn't be Florida without them.
