During the break between Christmas and New Year’s we visited Mount Dora. Founded in 1880 on the northern shore of Lake Dora, along the rolling hills of Central Florida, the 12,000-inhabitant enclave retains its small town charm. We spend one night admiring the intricate and over the top Christmas decorations. On the next day we take a package that includes a boat tour along Lake Dora and the Dora Canal, dubbed “the most beautiful mile of water in the world”. We also take a short yet exhilarating seaplane ride around the Lake County area, and return to Mount Dora aboard the Orange Blossom Cannonball, also known as the movie train. On the next day we move a few miles south to Kissimmee, catch a blockbuster movie and enjoy some of the Orlando nightlife.
