It’s April, a time of year when everything blooms. There’s certainly something blooming in my heart this month. It’s called hometown pride. For me, Lake County will always be home sweet home. I was born here, raised here, and have spent my entire life working here. Want to know why I love Lake County? Here are a few reasons:
Each Community Has Its Own Identity
Tourist attractions in Mount Dora, bustling events in Leesburg, waterfront activities in Tavares, and the health-conscious options in Clermont make Lake a truly diverse county.
Lake County residents embody the true meaning of community spirit and would gladly give you the shirts off their backs if you needed it. We don’t have neighbors here; we have extended family.
Ample Opportunities for the Avid Outdoor Enthusiast
Love to fish? Enjoy hiking? Relish boating? Want to discover birding? With various preserves, nature parks, and more than 1,000 named lakes, Lake County has you covered.
Wealth of Events
Hold on to your handlebars because Leesburg Bikefest is not the only game in town. Pig on the Pond, the Mount Dora Arts Festival, and the Sunnyland Antique and Classic Boat Festival—the largest classic boat show on America’s East Coast—draw tens of thousands of visitors to the area. And Eustis’ GeorgeFest is the second-longest-running festival of its kind in the country.
Lake County is the Perfect Size
According to the 2020 census, Lake has a population of 383,956 and is the 17th-largest county in Florida (out of 67). Incredibly, some people complain that Lake is still too small and lacks entertainment options. I wholeheartedly disagree. You cannot possibly drive through Clermont, The Villages, or Mount Dora and tell me there’s nothing to do here.
