Luscious lake land living in Florida

Motorized or man-powered; aquatic or landlubberly. If you've got a hankering for a particular outdoor activity, chances are you can indulge yourself while you're on your Lake County vacation rental. With more than 1,400 named lakes, plus forests, hills, and wetlands, this outdoorsman's paradise in friendly Florida is just waiting to shake you by the hand. Not only that, but the cities and towns of Lake County are easy-going places with great drinking and dining options. There's heaps of culture too, with museums, galleries, theaters, and family-friendly attractions all lined up to keep you coming back for more.

Blueways, byways, highways and skyways

Kayakers and boaters will be drawn to Lake County's 'blueways', or water trails, with pontoon boating particularly popular. And if your interest is more in what's under the water than what's on top of it, there's fishing galore, with a raft of tournaments if you've got a competitive streak. You can hike in the forests, go wildlife spotting, or practise your swing at one of Lake County's dozens of golf courses. Motorcyclists will gravitate towards the world's biggest biking and music festival, Leesburg Bikefest, while for the ultimate thrill on your Lake County vacation rental, how about booking a seaplane tour?

What goes on behind closed doors in Lake County

In the height of a humid Florida summer, even the toughest outdoor types might feel like gravitating towards somewhere cultural and air-conditioned, and fortunately Lake County doesn't disappoint in that department either. The area's big on local history attractions, but there are also museums covering everything from design and farming, to vintage cars and nostalgic Americana. More of the artistic type? Many of the towns in Lake County are stacked with galleries and arts centers, while you'll also want to look out for Lake Country's theater outfits, and orchestras. Kids, meanwhile, will love the adventure farms, maize mazes, and trampoline parks.

Winter? You don't see many of those round here

Drive around Lake County and you'll spot more than a few retirement communities. Know why? The weather. No hard frosts to make old bones ache round here. Winters in Lake County are impossibly mild and dry, to the point where most long-time residents have never seen snow. There's not really any discernible spring or fall, but summer is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Slow your pace right down and turn up the air-con, because the summer season in Lake County is hot and very humid. Not only that, but thunderstorms come crashing through most afternoons with big dumps of rain.

See you later, alligator

This part of Florida is famous for its amphibious landscape (and amphibious predators, naturally), but there's more to a Lake Country vacation rental than that. Take a drive around and you'll come across citrus groves, forests (such as Ocala National Forest), rolling hills, and old oak woodlands, as well as the celebrated lakes and wetlands. If you're in the market for some of that swamp and marshland wildlife, head to Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge for potential sightings of otters, eagles, and wading birds. Not forgetting those toothy old alligators, of course.
