It is no secret that Florida’s year-round sunshine makes for an ideal retirement destination.  

The state tax laws make it affordable, too, including no state tax. And every corner of the state offers a variety of things to do. Historical sites, hiking, boating, sports, and festivals will keep you busy during retirement.  

 Ranked as Florida’s #1 small town to retire to by USA Today, Mount Dora is known for its charming water ambiance, gracious lifestyle and friendly community. Due to its central location, retirees from Jacksonville, Tampa and other areas throughout Florida and the U.S. come to Mount Dora for its great attractions and relaxed atmosphere.  

 Located on the shores of Lake Dora and only an hour away from Orlando, this picturesque town was founded in 1880 and still maintains an old-world charm. Many refer to Mount Dora as the “Festival City”, because of the numerous festivals and fairs held throughout the year. If you enjoy participating in events, shopping for antiques in a charming downtown area, dining on a balcony overlooking Main Street, you will love Mount Dora. Theater comes to life in two theaters, alongside the numerous art galleries. Mount Dora is also known as the Bass Capital of the World and is an excellent small town to bring your fishing pole. You can walk along the lake, take up birding, biking, hiking, boating, and any other outdoor adventure your heart desires. 

 One of the best parts of retiring in Mount Dora is having extra spending power, as housing is still affordable. 

Mount Dora will win you over in a heartbeat and we, at RE/MAX Heritage, can certainly help with information on existing and upcoming retirement communities, so you can find your ideal retirement home!
