The streets of Mount Dora have been undergoing some serious refurbishing. A multi-phase summer project means new street-scaping, parking, and more to make Mount Dora beautiful. This charming town by the lake offers great dining, shopping, outdoor activities, and lodging, so enhancing her original beauty only adds to her small town charm.

There is new parking along 5th Avenue, the main edge to the historic downtown. Ready to open, that means more parking near all those things you love. Additional phases open over the coming weeks, so be prepared to enjoy the newly refurbished park, sidewalks, curbing, walkways, parking, and more. Mount Dora is working hard to make your visit special.
So plan a visit soon to enjoy the newly enhanced historic area, with the same great shopping, dining, activities, lodging, and more. Come to Mount Dora, someplace special.
