Mount Dora is a charming historic village in the heart of Central Florida on the shores of Lake Dora. The area offers a wide variety of shopping, dining, festivals, lodging, activities, and entertainment with excellent nearby golfing.

Just 25 miles northwest of Orlando, Mount Dora combines two kinds of vacations — the old-fashioned charm of a small unspoiled Central Florida town and the excitement of nearby Walt Disney World with proximity to the Orlando airport.
