Mount Dora

Mount Dora FL 32756-0196

The city of Mount Dora is a charming old historic village in the heart of Central Florida on the shores of beautiful Lake Dora in the Harris Chain of Lakes. It was originally known as Royellou, named after Roy, Ella and Louis, the three children of the first postmaster until 1883 when it was changed to Mount Dora.

With attractive tree lined streets, the historic downtown offers a wide array of shopping, dining, lodging, activities, wellness and entertainment.

Train fanatics will undoubtedly enjoy this little jaunt to nowhere as you will find out as much history of the train itself as the surrounding area. Ride aboard the Orange Blossom Cannonball - the trip is narrated with history and points of interest and an interesting "turn around" mid-way provides additional entertainment.
