“Lake Dora”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Lake Dora has THE most beautiful sunsets! I love this lake. Boating here has NEVER disappointed - you must go through the canal. Like stepping back in time. Nice boardwalk for walking. Many fine restaurants to dine in Mt. Dora

“Beautiful Lake”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Lake Dora is in Mount Dora. It is a beautiful lake for boating or walking around. If you are boating you can use the Dora Canal to travel into several other area lakes. There is a boardwalk path that allows you to walk around one side of the lake that offers views of the lake and wildlife. A marina offers boat rentals and dock space. There are also small boat tours available from a company call Craig Cat. All this is only a short walk from downtown Mount Dora with boutique shops and restaurants.

“A beautiful view!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

You can sit in one of the local restaurants and feel the serenity of the lake, or you can take a walk down to it....I don't know what could be better. Peaceful, clean, just plain pretty!

“Premier Boat Tours”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

This was an amazing tour into the Lake Dora canal. It was like going back in time to the days before the area was populated! There were Cypress trees dripping with beautiful Spanish moss & wildlife from alligators to herins, eagles, egrets & turtles in their natural environment. Would love to bring the grandkids back to show them the real Florida before all the commercialization.

“Southern belle”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Always lovely to behold, the lake is also one to take a long walk alongside - or take a boat-ride on. Try one of the tour boats and visit the canal. You are likely to spot eagles along the way as well as alligators and other wildlife. Sunsets are a favorite for in-town folks as well as for tourists.
