Long description

Open daily dawn to dusk. Rated 1C. Not suitable for wheelchairs. Strollers will have difficulty on hills. Moderately easy walk with some uncut curbs, short distances with no sidewalks. This bright, cheerful city has been voted as one of the Top 10 cities in which to live in America. You will see why as you stroll through the historic downtown area (an antique hunter's paradise); wander through the magnificently restored historic neighborhoods; trod the boardwalk along Lake Dora where alligators live, and absorb the strong evidence of civic pride.
