Your guide to Mount Dora

All About Mount Dora

Located on the shore of Lake Dora in Central Florida just a 40-minute drive from Orlando, Mount Dora draws antique and art lovers, history buffs, and outdoor enthusiasts looking to clock some time on the lake. There are 4,500 acres of water to explore here, and if you don’t have your own boat, you can rent one from the local marina. You can also wander down to Palm Island Park, a picturesque nature reserve lined with native trees. A tranquil boardwalk winds through the forest before reaching the water’s edge, and you may even spot a gator relaxing along the shoreline.

Founded in the 1870s, Mount Dora really began to develop in the 1920s, and you’ll see an array of historic homes here. The town also has a vibrant art scene, including the Modernism Museum, which hosts exhibits on art and design as well as the craftsmanship of functional objects.


The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Mount Dora

Mount Dora is a great place to visit all year round. Travelers flock here in the winter to enjoy the mild Florida temperatures and clear, dry days — something to keep in mind when booking your Mount Dora vacation rentals. The city hosts the Mount Dora Arts Festival in February and showcases the work of hundreds of artists, sculptors, photographers, and crafters from around the country.

Summers are hot and humid, with regular thunderstorms. Note that late summer and early fall are hurricane season on the Atlantic Coast, so check the weather reports if you’re traveling during this time. Summer heat often lasts through September here, but by October you may need an extra layer over those all-season shorts. Spring is mild, a great time to check out the Mount Dora Spring Festival of Arts and Crafts.


Top things to do in Mount Dora

Mount Dora History Museum

Housed in Mount Dora’s first firehouse and jail, this museum takes you back through the town’s history from its founding in the 1870s. Along with historical artifacts, you can also explore the old jail cells and even see some of the original graffiti left by prisoners on the walls.

Modernism Museum

This colorful museum showcases one of the largest collections of Modernist art in the world and was created by some of the genre’s most renowned artists. Explore eye-catching exhibits — from colorful, quirky Italian furniture to sleek-lined sculptures made from natural elements — at this unique arts haven.

Lake Dora

One of the seven Harris Chain Lakes, Lake Dora attracts kayakers, boaters, and fishing enthusiasts, who set their lines here for bass and crappie. You might even spot a few antique and classic wooden boats on the water. The lake’s north shore is home to beautiful green spaces like Wooton Park in Tavares, the county seat.
