Moving to Mount Dora; A Brief Introduction

So you are interested in moving to Mount Dora, this is a brief overview to this “Festival City”.  Mt. Dora is a quaint “Old Florida” styled town with a home town feel that boasts lots of boutique shops and restaurants. Mount Dora is located just 25 miles Northwest of Orlando and approximately 48 miles Southeast of Ocala. The city of Mount Dora is positioned almost directly in center of the State of Florida. Mount Dora and the Golden Triangle (area between the cities of Eustis, Mt. Dora and Tavares) are close enough to Orlando for easy access to big city amenities but far enough away from the grind of big city living.
