With its year-round schedule of festivals and events, the beautiful and historic city of Mount Dora has become an iconic city in Central Florida and has grown to be known as the “Festival City”. Surrounding its crown jewel of Lake Dora, the city of Mount Dora hosts a population of over 17,000. Full of historic homes and a busy downtown life, this is one destination not only worth visiting, but a great place to settle down in Mount Dora is home to one of three freshwater lighthouses in Florida and its Historic buildings line the streets of downtown. We love stopping by here on a Sunday afternoon and enjoying many of their restaurants and shops. You can grab a Cuban sandwich at Las Palmas or some delicious sushi fusion at WAVE Asian Bistro.
If you love attending festivals, Mount Dora will not disappoint. They have many events throughout the year you can enjoy including the Scottish Highland Festival, Mount Dora Arts Festival, The Mount Dora Spring Festival of Arts and Crafts, and Earth Day among many others.
And not only does it have an abundance of festivals, but you will find many tours throughout the city highlighting some of the best scenic places and historical sites in the area. You can take a boat tour and see the canals and the beautiful lake, take a segway through downtown, or go on a yummy food tour with the Taste of Mount Dora. If you have family or friends in town, you won’t run out of options of things for them to do and they always have the option to stay longer at one of our Historic Inns. Come explore Mount Dora with us and find your new home!
